      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 .

getting ready for the season to come. For the last 2 seasons I have been trying to figure out why the sled is getting so cold blooded. It used to be 2-3 pulls done when it gets cold. Now I could pull all day and nothin unless I use some good ole either.

I have had the carb rebiult and the fule filter replaced. all the fule lines look good. What else could be wrong?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Could be a small crack or hole worn through the impulse line from the crankcase to the fuel pump causing the fuel pump to work incorrectly making it hard to start.

Thank you for your input, I am wondering if this Impulse line is a fuel or a vacuum line? I was thinking of replacing all the fuel lines and cleaning connectors thinking air may be getting in the lines. But once the sled is started all is good. I would think if there is a fuel or vacuum issue I would get backfires and irregular throttle?

The impulse line is the hose that goes from the crankcase (usually on back,carb side) to the fuel pump. If the impulse line is cracked or has a small hole in it, the sled will be extremly difficult to start. It may still run after you get it started but if it's cracked the fuel pump won't operate properly making it hard to start.

When is the last time u had the carbs cleaned, usually the pilot jets will become plugged or the choke circut will be restricted with old gas varnish , this is a common problem with todays poor gas, cleaned hundreds of carbs over the past 23 years as a sled mechanic, also check your compression, should be 130-150 if in good shape.

    • I'm a little nervous to watch the game.  My 4 year old daughter has taken an interesting in "the purple team" as she calls them and she's looking forward to watching the game with me this weekend.  I'm not sure I can keep my language clean enough for 4 year old ears if the vikings live up to their reputation.  If they win I'm sure I'll scare her when I jump off the couch and run around the house screaming.  
    •   Well, I don't have that kind of time in the morning so pan fried will have to do.
    • like that stuff better off the grill....
    • The Vikings have to win.  I can't imagine having to deal with the Eagle fans who will be here for the Super Bowl if they win.   The Eagles/Falcons game last week was pretty sloppy.  Neither team looked great.  I know the Eagles regular season record is impressive, but look at their schedule/results this year.  The win against the Panthers in week 6 is a good win and the week 14 win on the road against the Rams is impressive.  The rest of their schedule was horrible.   1 Sep 10 PHI 30 @ WAS 17 2 Sep 17 PHI 20 @ KC 27 3 Sep 24 NYG 24 @ PHI 27 4 Oct 01 PHI 26 @ LAC 24 5 Oct 08 ARI 7 @ PHI 34 6 Oct 12 PHI 28 @ CAR 23 7 Oct 23 WAS 24 @ PHI 34 8 Oct 29 SF 10 @ PHI 33 9 Nov 05 DEN 23 @ PHI 51 10 Bye 11 Nov 19 PHI 37 @ DAL 9 12 Nov 26 CHI 3 @ PHI 31 13 Dec 03 PHI 10 @ SEA 24 14 Dec 10 PHI 43 @ LA 35 15 Dec 17 PHI 34 @ NYG 29 16 Dec 25 OAK 10 @ PHI 19 17 Dec 31 DAL 6 @ PHI 0      
    •   I picked the wrong month to take a break from drinking.  
    • I decided to have the breakfast of champions this morning.....  
    • google Food VacBags. almost missed your post.  remember to type @ in front   of user name and then that person gets a notification. @Grainbelt    I just got another order. love them! 
    • Eyeguy, You posted a great place to get vacuum seal bags. I bought from there and was pretty happy with them. I need more but can't remember the online business name. Could you please remind me?
    • With technology now you can just drop it in the hopper and either watch it later if they win or delete it if things go south.
