      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 .

Anyone ever rebuilt a pressure washer pump?

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2400 psi Karcher pressure washer with 5.5 hp Honda. Engine runs like a champ, but no pressure. I took the pump off and took it apart - nothing obvious looks wrong, but I've never dug into one of these before. Looks like I could get a new pump for $139 or a rebuild kit for $80. Anyone ever tried the rebuild kit? I want to sell the thing to get it out of the garage but would like to make at least a few dollars, that is why I am considering the rebuild. Any opinions? Thanks.

Before you go through the effort of rebuilding it make sure the inlet hose screen is clean. (Its located right where the water hose connects) If there is any obstruction they wont work. Mine quit while using it up at my cabin and I messed around with it for a half hour before finding the screen plugged. Cleaned it out and it worked great....

I had two of the same kind last year, they both had some issues. I tried to make one out of two and it didn't work. what did you pay for yours, I might be just as well to junk it than put the money into - just to sell it.

Thanks for the ideas, fellas. I'll check for obstructions at the hose inlet. If I don't find anything there, I may put it back together and sell it as a "pump doesn't work" pressure washer, but also thought there might be some satisfaction in getting it working...but it really won't be worth it in the end. Thanks.

It's easy to do. I rebuilt a Karcher a few years ago and it still works well. I don't remember the link but you can find an exploded parts diagram which helps in breaking it down.
