      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 .

Mercury Repair Manual

Recommended Posts

What is the best repair manual for 97 Mercury 200hp DFI. I need one that will be very specific on tearing things apart. I don't want something that only a certified mercury marine mechanic can understand. Should I go with Seloc, or one of Mercury's publications?

Thanks

Get a Mercury publication, they are very easy to understand and well written, probably the best manuals I've ever had.

Seloc and Clymer are just to start the fireplace.... laugh

If you get the Merc manual you stand less chance of getting into something that isn't covered by the after market manuals. You'll also get more info on just your outboard. When you get into after market manuals that cover multiple year and hp they'll list those as "type" instead of year. That can be somewhat confusing for the novice at times. Still the after market manuals can be useful with some very good detailed info. Diagrams are weak in both IMO.

Along with manuals, parts break downs and exploded views are very helpful. You can find those on-line.

I did a LOT of work on my boat motor last summer. It's a Johnson not a Merc, but as far as the manual goes....I started off with an aftermarket manual that is now ashes in the fire pit. The factory manual that is motor specific to that type was WAY better. If I ever have to do this again, to a different motor, I'll go motor specific manual every time.
