      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 .

1987 Mercury 25 HP tiller steering issue

Recommended Posts

I have a 1987 Mercury 25 HP. It runs great, but last year it started to tourque to the right very hard. I have tightened the tensioning bolt, made sure the motor is centered on the transom, adjusted the trim tab. It was off center a little bit, I recentered it and it helped a bit, and tightening the tensioning bolt also helped. but it is still not that good, if I let go it makes a hard right. Any suggestions.

You could try moving your trim pin up one hole. That probably will help your steering torque, but may make getting on plane take longer. Experiment with it and see what you find!

You don't want the tab 'centered'. You want it to one side. Got this from my outboard service manual,

'If less steering effort is required in a starboard turn, move the trim tab slightly to starboard.

If less steering effort is required in a port turn, move trim tab slightly to port.'

I have a newer (2004) Merc that is a 25hp as well. I do not know what a "tensioning bolt" is. Where can I fool with this adjustment? Can someone tell me?

Thanks.

Look on the housing that your motor pivots about - there should be a bolt or spring loaded bolt in that area that you can tighten or loosen to adjust your steering tension.
