      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 .

Gas Tank ?

Recommended Posts

First off i'm not good with motors, but anyways. I have a 1979 Johnson 15 hp long shaft, with a plastic gas tank with a hose that has the primer bulb. My question is that when I pump the primer it fills with gas, and the first time I can get gas at the motor end, but then I pump it again and it gets hard and I cant't get no gas at the motor end, and the only way I can release the pressure is to disconnect the hose from the primer bulb. Anotherwards i'm not getting gas to the carb. Does it sound like a hose problem or carb, etc. problem. Just looking for some help or thoughts on this. thanks p.s. motor ran great before this.

If you're getting the condition you describe while the hose is connected to the motor I agree with Bruce, sounds like a stuck inlet needle.

Is this something that just happened, or has the motor sat for a while?

Given that I might be tempted to remove the gas hose from where it connects to the fuel pump / diaphragm and pump the primer bulb a bit and see if it pumps fuel through the hose to rule out the mating end of the connector.
