      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 .

Check your fuel line for leaks...just one small pinhole in it will do this. Or, your connections might be loose- either on the fuel tank or on the motor.

Could be a whole list of things along with air leak. "Mechanic checked the carbs and replaced some seals" Why did he let it go if it didnt idle right? Did he clean the carbs and how did you adjust the high and low speed? Does it stay idleing when out of gear? It is loading up when it quits or starving for gas? Does it pop or die slow? I know its alot of ?'s but it will help figure it out.

motor was bought used, and I think they did'nt want to put too much into it, but they are willing to fix the problem. when shifted to neutural, it will idle for about a minute or less,and slowly die down. all the fuel lines are from the old motor, and I did'nt have that problem, so I'm guessing it's in the motor.
