      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.

Most of your snowmobile dealers will have recoil rope in bulk, they will just cut you a piece and your good to go.

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.

it looks like i have enough room around the muffler, can I reues the same rope and just cut off the bad part or will it be bad if its alittle short?

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.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
