      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 .

No spark on one cylinder

Recommended Posts

Help needed.

Yamaha ProV 150

Last couple of times out going across the river at top speed the motor would lose power from 55mph to 45 mph and would be sluggish out of the whole. This would happen spur addict, now I have lost power permanently.

Put 2 new fuel pumps in and full set of new spark plugs in. Today I checked spark plugs and all plugs were chocolate brown except for 1 witch were clean like new. So now I assume that one of the CDI boxes(I assume these are individual coils for each cylinder) went bad. Anybody know how to test these. Or could there be something else wrong.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

If you have individual coils, switch one over with the "bad" one. If it fires and the other not it is the coil.

Thanks Valv and boatfixer this helps a whole lot! I realy do appreciate the help.

When I lost power I thought I might have melted a piston, been there done that. Never thought I would be happy with an electrical problem.

Now that is darker out, so I can see spark better, I'm going out now to try the sugestions.

Baffeling, checked the spark and all seems fine. I'll puts with it tomarrow. Ive got to go pick up a new ohm meter and a compresion tester. Maybe the bad coil decided to work again being it seemed to be intermitant. I see no other explanation behind a clean spark plug.

Thanks sparcebag good thing to keep in mind. I guess I'll put the muffs on and warm it up to see if I can get it to fail or put it in the water. Dealers are closed till Monday so I'll have to wait to go fishing. I hope I dont get sucked into watching the vikes being I'm not on the water.

Compression test came up strong, same in all cylinders grin

After reading the trouble shooting manual boatfixer emailed me it looks as though 1 of 3 things. Stator,switch box or coil.

I havn't got access to a good dva meter and that I couldn't tell the difference between a stator and a switch box let alone locate them so I'm going to bring it to the guy who rebuilt the engine a few years back he does great work and is affiliated to a local marine dearlership and shop.

It more than likely is not the stator, that is common to all cylinders. CD module, coil, coil wire, plug wire can affect 1 cylinder at a time.

Yea, that makes sence. I only hope its not the CDI box and its something small like a wire or a coil. If its the CDI box it will have to wait till next year because the rest of my big purchases are going to hard water this year.

    • Thank you for setting this up and keeping track. It was a lot of fun to be somewhat in contention. I don’t really care  one way or the other for the lucky dog. The one good thing is it let more guys get in a week late and still have a shot at winning. Thanks again
