      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.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
