      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 .

Depends on which Jiffy you have. Different engines on different models. Different carbs and ignition systems.

The main problem will be lack of fuel. Carb adjustment should take care of it.

A plugged exhaust will exhibit the same symthoms. But if your auger is brand new, this would not be the case.

I have seen some of the TC200 and TC300 engines that did not have the igniton coil adjusted correctly. This will interfere with the spark at the plug. A fouled spark plug will give he same problem.

There's a way of adjusting the idle screws by turning them all the way in and then turning one a quarter turn and the other some more... i wish I knew the right amount to turn it (maybe someone else on here does) but once you adjust it to that, it's a good starting place rather than guessing by gosh and by golly where your idle screws are set.

I think all you're gonna need to do is increase the idle speed a little. If you take a close look at the carb and work the trottle at the same time, you will see the screw that needs to be adjusted.

I have had to do this with every auger I have ever bought new, Jiffy, SM, and Nils.

Congrats on your auger purchase, Fishon! There's just no subbing for a power auger when the ice gets thick.

Pick up a flasher yet?
