      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 .

problem with merc 9.9

I think the gears in the lower unit are shot because the motor runs well, but dosent kick any power out. Runs ok at a very slow speed, but its like the more juice i give her, the higher the rpm of the motor is, but i don't move faster, and i'f i keep reving it, the motor will probably blow.

Anyone know what I should do?

Sounds like the hub in your prop might be spun. Make a mark that goes across the hub and onto the prop, take the motor out for the cruise, and if you come back and the marks are not lined up, you've got a spun hub. They can be replaced by a prop shop. It might be about the same price for a new prop, though.

I noticed that when I pulled out, the lower unit was hot, and leaking lower unit oil our of some drain hole towards the upper end of the lower unit... looked milkier than when i put it in... the lower unit was hot, but the engine wasn't...

Definitely drain the lower unit and look for milky oil or no oil. If you have the above you'll need new seals. In this case leaking milkly lower unit oil up high would most likely be driveshaft seals(under the water pump) in which case you'll change the impeller at the same time.

Hopefully the heat is from the prop slipping on the hub and not internal damage in the lower unit. Look for metal shaving in the drain oil.

Follow Frank's advice, but this typically isn't a good sign for your lower unit. It very likely may be time for new seals.

I'm hopeing that you found two different problems

1. Bad seals letting water in.

2. Spun hub

It's been my experience that if you have a gear failure to the point that it will still catch at an idle but wont hang on at higher speed, you wont find milky oil. you will find burned oil-black and stinky that is also mixed up with lots of little shiny pieces that once used to be gear teeth. If not burned I would think you will at least find metal shavings.

Much cheaper to re-hub and re-seal than it is to replace gears.

Lets hope it's not gear failure, be sure to let us know what you find.

I was just out using my motor its a late 70s evinrude and it just started doing the same thing as joeyquicksands. So do I take the prop off and is the hub directly under that?

    • Yup... you're right. 3000# for both brakes and licensing
    • Electrics augers are crazy nice in wheelhouse. I know that propane and 4-strokes give off WAY less fumes then the augers of yesteryear... but the new auger setups essentially have a slush copter built in with the reverse option.
    •   Not a chance that Nils is closing, quite the opposite as they can't make them fast enough. The Tanaka powerhead and transmission made by Hitachi (great product btw)was discontinued a few years back along with many other Tanaka power tools.   I thought that might effect Nils but timing and trend of going electric plus new higher torque drills and lithium higher amp hr batteries made the transition seamless.      
    • Strange to win 3 OT games, I think we have or had the worst 3 on 3 ot record in the league. Also imagine how screwed this team would be without Staal, what a gift. Hated that 3 year term when he signed but kind of wish he had an extra year or two on this contract. 
    • My budget would be more like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Raptor-Whisper-Air-Rifle-177/dp/B01AMAO86Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1513086150&sr=8-2&keywords=22%2Bpellet%2Bgun&th=1&psc=1   And you can get this one in either .177 or .22 evidently.
    • A gun is a gun, I like them all! This one is BA but a lot more than I personally would spend on an air rifle..... https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/tactical-armada-22-pcp-1000-fps-028478145122.do?sortby=ourPicks  
    • Thanks for the extra pics.  Always nice to see how other houses are built.  Enjoy your new house.
    • The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW.  I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.
    • Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.
    • Five of us had fifteen on Saturday in five hours of hunting. I would agree with bobberineyes that there does seem to be pockets of birds. The numbers are definitely not more than last year around here but about the same I would say. I have talked to a few farmers though that said they saw less while combining corn than last year. Should be able to get into the cattails pretty soon and that's always a good time.
