      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 .

Break-in period after rebuild

Recommended Posts

I will be getting my boat back today or tomorrow after a complete power head rebuild (all 6 cylinders boared, new pistons, bearings...). What should I do for breaking the motor in? Do I need to add extra oils in the gas? It's a 1996 Evinrude 150 hp 2 stroke.

I'm not an expert on that motor but usually after a rebuild you break it in just like it is brand new. If it calls for some premixed oil when new (I believe a lot of 2 strokes do) - I would use some now. I would vary my speed quite a bit and would not run wide open unless its for a VERY short burst. Main thing is to not run at the same speed for long periods of time - you want to mix it up as much as possible until the rings seat. Hope this helps and good luck with the new powerhead.

PTocko is right on here - vary your engine RPM, and run double mix oil (1 pint to 6 gallons if it's oil injected) for 10 gallons - run as much of that 10 gallons out as you can before you fill up with straight gas, varying the RPM's for that 10 gallons.

Good Luck!
