      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 .

Jumping out of gear

Recommended Posts

Look at the linkage to make shure no shift rods are bent. I always take my small outboards off for the winter and store them in the warm basement. I bent a reverse locking rod on mine one motor and didn't notice it right away, must have bumped it while moving it around. Start with the simple stuff first.

1st of all, what year?

Here are a couple of things.

Shift linkage out of adjustment

worn clutch dog and/or fwd gear lugs

detent on shift lever wore out

I also ran into one that the thrust washer in front of the prop was wore out allowing the prop shaft to float back and forth and every time the guy was in rough water, it would jump out of gear-rare however.

I'll second the the worn dogs/lugs. I made this repair on a 1985 35 Johnson I bought several years ago. It would jump out of reverse. I think it was around $350 for my repair.
