      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 .

I've gone thru quite a few of those things over the years. Especially on my ZRT, which is pulling 3 carbs. Anyway, any dealer will have them. It's not an expensive part so I wouldn't waste my time looking for aftermarket stuff.

Edit - I was typing as pj_4 replied. You probably won't find a better price than that at a dealer.

I have a 1989 Arctic Cat Jaguar that has a broken choke lever.

Any reccomendations as to where to get a replacement.

Hondatown in Mpls deals genuine Artco parts.

It's not hard, I've done many myself. Can you take the recoil off without removing the muffler system? If so, that's great, just less to worry about.

Should be about 4 bolts holding the recoil on. Once you get the recoil off, there should be a single nut holding on a 'washer' on the top of the recoil, if you take that off you will see the 'dogs' under the washer, pay attention to them, might be some springs in there, just make sure they go back together like they came apart.

Your spring should be un-wound so once you remove the top pieces you should be able to just simply pull the plastic piece out SLOWLY, remove the rope, install the new rope, slide the plastic piece back in, turn it a bit and it should hook the spring, assemble the dogs again with the washer and nut and wind the spring and leave enough rope to reach the outside where the handle goes.

You should be able to test the unit by just pulling on the rope, as long as the dog or dogs are coming out and retracting when the rope goes back in you should be fine. Throw it back on the sled.

Don't wind the spring too tight or it will come undone and you'll have to take it all apart again. There might be a notch in the plastic part where the rope sets, that notch is for the rope when you wind it. If the ends of the rope are frayed, just use a match or lighter and heat them up and squeeze them together but don't use your fingers, that stuff is HOT, where gloves or use a pliers or something.

Personally, I'd get a new rope but if it looks like you won't be too short you could just cut off the bad part.

I've done this before but usually find out other areas of the rope are starting to go bad too.

    • Looks like a squid attacked the brisket.
    • Much better results this time. Nailed it!  
    • Gibson and Butler showed what good defense looks like last night.  Now can the others follow suit? Teague, is not off to a good start.  i would rather watch Jones than Teague.  Not 1 thing looks good with him.
    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
