      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

removing lower unit

Recommended Posts

I am trying to remove the lower unit on my 1998 90hp Johnson. I have taken the four bolts off from the cavitation plate and the one just above the prop. Should it come loose now? It is still very tight. I tried tapping on the cavitiaiton plate a little but didn't want to break anything.

I'm trying to go by memory here but isn't there another nut or bolt on the front side, or two above the prop? You should disconnect the shift rod before dropping the lower unit.

Thanks SFG I would have never found the bolt under there. Now the unit is able to move but I can't find the shift rod you guys are talking about. I have the lower cowling off the power head and the only shaft I see looks to be about 3/4 in maybe 5/8 and it seems to go right in to a bearing on the power head. Where do I look for this shaft? Thanks for taking the time to help !!!

ITS OUT Thank you guys very much. What a great resource!!!! I don't know that I ever would have found the two hang ups if it weren't for you guys. I had a littlle trouble trying to figure out what had to happen for that shaft to come loose but when that brass clamp or clevis started to move I could see what needed to happen

Again thanks for taking the time to respond I really appreciate it Now I just need to get the prop shaft fixed and put things back together and we should be good to go.

Leave for Bemidji area the last week of June so need to get things going...
