      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 .

Did you clean the carbs when you put the kit in? It sounds like a stuck / plugged high speed jet to me, that or fuel delivery - fuel pump, hose, etc.

Is the primer bulb facing the correct direction?

Yes I cleaned the whole carb there is a fuel pump on there I cleaned that too

Sure it's the fuel pump you cleaned? Sounds to me like you need to open your high speed screw a little at a time until she runs good. I know you said you put a carb kit in it, so I'm assuming this also meant a new needle and seat and if not start there.

Is that a 2 hose gas line? If so make sure your gas cap is tight and there is pressure in the tank (push the little black button on top of the tank till she squeaks)

Spark, fuel, and compression.

Did you remove the fixed high speed jet(not adjustable) and clean it or spray through it to verify that it was clean and free of crud? What happens if you try to richen the idle mixture needle. Do a compression check and verify spark on both cyls, just to eliminate other problems.

What should the compression be for that motor? I know I have spark I put new points and condensers in it. I replaced the needle and seat so thats brand new. I tried turning the mixture screw I can get it to idle but thats all I tried it rich and I tried it lean I cant get it to go

There is no spec on compression other than to have them fairly even. I have had some as low as 70 psi, be within 5 psi or so of each other, and have them run fine.

have you tried to choke it a little while trying to throttling up? I would still suspect the high speed jet in this case, but you need to eliminate spark and compression problems.

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
