      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 .

115 Johnson exhaust

Recommended Posts

I have a 115 Johnson Faststrike that seems to have had a change in exhaust flow. Now when it's idling there dosen't seem to be much exhaust that comes out of the prop (but there is some) and more than usual comes out the ports on the back of the motor. I think there has been a change of sound but no change in performance. I don't know if it's related or not but I had the lower unit resealed this year and a new prop put on at the same time. Is there any whay that the exhaust port inside the lower unit could be blocked with something? I shined a flashlight in there and can't see anything wrong.

In the water. I also see more of an oily residue (as there should be) in the rear exhaust ports and the prop is clean and dry on the inside. This is a 2 stroke motor if that makes an difference.

If the prop or exhaust housing were plugged, I think you notice a big difference in performance. The holes at the back of the motor are indeed called idle relief ports, and may just be doing that. I'm just wondering if you are noticing it more now because it is getting colder out and the oil isn't burning all the way out. If you are comfortable doing it yourself, you could pull the lower off and have a look, just to be sure.

I noticed it while up on URL after doing a day of trolling. I really don't think that anything is plugged but I just found it weird that all of a sudden the two ports show oil residue and have never done that before. Thanks for the help.

Ahhh, trolling for a day. I don't think you have anything to worry about. It sounds like unburned oil.
