      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 .

Prop not spinning.....shear pin??

Recommended Posts

I have an 84 Lund with a 25hp Evinrude on the back that I use for putting around my lake. I've had it for about 10 years and its ran like a champ for most of that time.

Whenever I get above say 1/3 throttle, the motor revs higher and the prop stops spinning. I heard from someone that is the shear pin, or something like that, which is stripped. Does anyone know how hard this would be to fix? Is it easy?

Pull the prop off - if there's a shear pin see if it's broke.

If it's not, use a white paint pen, draw a mark from the outside of the hub to the inside of the hub, run it a while and see if the lines move with respect to each other.

It's likely one or the other.

I would agree on the spun hub. There is a piece of rubber that connects the prop to the hub that is splined to the shaft. If the rubber tears free from the prop the hub will turn but the prop wont. if you can start it with muffs on it in the yard and put it in gear see if the center of the hub turns. The whole prop may spin even if the rubber is bad when there is no load on it. If the center part doesnt turn then there is another issue, but if the center turns and the the prop doesnt then you can have the prop repaired and it will cost you less than a new one.
