      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 .

Poulan chainsaw starter rope

Recommended Posts

I borrowed a Poulan Wild Thing 18inch chain saw and the starter rope came out a couple of times. Anyone know how it goes back in correctly cause I've done it wrong two different ways so far. Clockwise lasted 2 pulls, counter clockwise 1.

Thanks for any help.

It sounds as though the coil spring may be broke. Did you take the assembly apart. On both ends of the coil spring there should be a hook. The hook sometimes breaks off. The hook catches, on both ends, on the housing it sits in preventing it from spinning loos.

Or tighten the coil a few more times before winding the rope on.

I have to laugh, because I rember the fustration I've had with those pull ropes on my machines.

Clockwise should be the right direction

No, when the saw is in one hand and the entire rope is in the other it's pretty clear it's the rope. There is a plastic cover over the spring and a indent where you wind the rope, which is held in place with a screw and a washer. You have to have seen one to know what I'm writing about.

Recoils are pretty much the same. See which way the spring winds.

If your rope continues to pull straight out then its not the direction of the winding, you need to tie a bigger knot in it or thread it in differently. It doesn't use tension to hold the rope in. It usually passes through a channel in the wheel and has a knot to prevent it from pulling through. If you mean the screw and washer holds the rope in place then you need to find the right way for it to hold the rope in place.

Remove the handle on the rope. Slide one end of the rope through the hole in the rewind case and to the spool. You'll see where the end of the rope should be in the spool. Get it into the hole and tie a knot. Now turn the spool against the spring. Keep going till the other end of the rope pulls though the case. When you have a few inch not on the spool put it in the notch on the side of the spool and continue to wind. This puts enough preload on the spring so your rewind rope isn't left dangling. Thats usually a couple more turns. Now take the end of the rope, same end that in the notch of the spool and work it back through the rewind case. Attach your handle. Test again to see if the rope retracts all the way. If it doesn't then take the handle off, get the rope back in the spools notch and give it another turn.

    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more. 
    • Outside speakers dont need to be loud to enjoy them and most dont.  Nice to have music when tending tipups on a slow mid day bite.  And great when camping.  As to the strobe, its becoming a safety concern.  There are more and more idiots driving 40+mph and snowmobiles doing 60+ and crashing on the ice.  I went with just being able to flip on our 10 marker lights but I don't mind anyone wanting to be seen.  We have blackout curtains and a strobe on top of a house will do nothing to hurt the bite.
