      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 .

Strike Master auger won't start

Recommended Posts

I have a Strike Master that I have not used for two years that I forgot to drain the gas out of. I have replaced it with new gas but it will not start. I know there is nothing wrong with the motor since I had it tuned up since the last time I used right before I put it in storage. Any help would be appreciated. thanks Pete

Does the cord pull hard? If it does, there is a good chance that the carbs are gummed up. I had that happen to me this year, I brought it to strikemaster and they took care of the problem for me.

i would definately say it has carb issues but have you checked your spark plug? did you actually drain the old fuel out of the line that went into the carb?

Its gotta be the carb, they are not too complicated to clean if you are willing to do some research on the net. But if you ask me don't waste your time cleaning the jets, just buy new ones. They are cheap and then you can rule them out of the equation.

If you have drained the old gas and have new gas..plus new plug, then with out the plug in, pull the rope a half dozen times. re insert the plug and see if she'll fire up. add some sea foam to the gas and let it help clean up the gum.

you should just have a simple clamp on the fuel line going into the carb pull that down and pull the line if there is fuel in the carb it should drain to if it doesn't the jet could be plugged but i realize thats a lot to remember

I guess that I would take it into strikemaster in Big Lake. They are very fair in the pricing and turn around. They have a get it started price and a tune up price. My buddy brought his in at 4 p.m. one day and got it back at 8 am the next day. They did some adjustments and got it running like a top. Under $20. They did not have to put a carb kit in. If anything....saves some frustration if your are not a small engine guy. (I am not one)

I would even flip the kill/on/off switch a few times. Mine developed corrosion inside the switch and wouldn't kick off right away. Could pull the plug (put wire back on) and see if there's spark, too.
