      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 .

late 90s yamaha trim ?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys looking for a little help. I have a 70 horse yamaha and the trim had acted up a few times lately. Every now and then it goes up and don't want to come back down. Heres the dumb question I have for you. Where on the trim unit is the filler hole for the hydraulics? There are a few different screws that look like they could be it. Also do you check it in the up or down position? Any help appreciated

I saw a guy with this problem this summer on the river. He had to get the motor at leat part way up and the fill cap was almost directly under the motor I think off to the right a bit.

If marine man dont know call your dealer.

When this happens the motor is working. It really doesn't sound any different. I thought I had it working, but I took it to the lakes this weekend and trimmed it up when coming in to shore and thats where it stayed wouldn't go up or down. I got it to the boat access and got it on the trailer used the manual release screw. The motor dropped all the way down. I tightened the screw and it went up and down again. It seems a little slow though. Think I might just have to bring it in.

Guys could it be a stator or fuse issue?

This summer when my stator went down my trim would work slowly and intermidantly until finally a few days later nothing worked. It would drain the battery down real quick.

New stator and fuses and I was golden.

Sounds different than this a bit but ya never know.

I have a 98 40 horse yammy. My problem would be the tilt/trim clicked and did not move. I took the tilt/trim motor apart and looked ok to me. I took it to the shop and they fixed it right away. There is a grease on the brushes from the factory that turns sticky almost like a glue when it gets hot. So it glues per say the brushes in place not letting them make contact, making your tilt/trim motor not work. The mechanic says it is common and I caught it soon enough, because usually people burn out the pump trying to make it work and the pump is around $400.00.
