      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Lower End Issues

Recommended Posts

'89 350 Magnum/Alpha 1 Gen2

Feels like a spun prop but it isnt, goes fine in reverse but only goes 3mph in foward then starts slipping. When in gear i can turn the prop clockwise and i can hear a slight clicking somewhere in the lower unit.

While in fwd rotate the prop counter clock wise. What happens? The prop shaft should not be able to turn. Rotating clockwise, the "ramped" side of the clutch dog will ratchet, which is normal

A couple of things come to mind if you are 100% sure that the prop hub is not slipping.

Shift cable adjustment

worn clutch dog

Engine coupler slipping.

To isolate the problem get a manual if you are familiar with adjusting the cables and try to adjust first.

Drain the gear lube and look for shavings or other contamination indicating a problem internally.

Pull the out drive and inspect the shaft splines that go into the engine coupler for signs of slpipping.
