      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 .

So i've been having problems with my motor as of late with the oil/gas mix getting on one of the plugs after it has been run for awhile "15 minutes" at slow or fast speed.....what could the cause(s) for this be?

I guess I forgot to ask how it runs. Wet and clean (still looks new) suggests no spark. Have you done a spark and compression test?

It runs ok for awhile but then it seems to hesitate a lot and when it's at its worst it only runs about half speed....smells gassy...opened it up and gas was dripping from the carb. Maybe it could be flooding out?? Have not done a comp or spark test.

I would check for spark first since it should rule out most iginition problems.

If the plug is consistently wet it sure sounds like it's getting flooded out by the carb. Might be time to look into cleaning the carbs.

Yeah, I agree. If it starts off running just fine and progressively gets worse, then it is probably flooding. Bad needle and seat, high speed jet adjustment too rich, float bowl vent plugged.
