      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 .

Any certified Merc shop. It'll cost about 100.00-150.00 for a once over, Plugs, Oil, Lower Unit, Filter. I take it it's a 4-stroke?

Have you put new plugs in? Also add some sea-form that might help. Thats about $10.00. If you have the ear muffs you can check it out at home on one of the warmer days.

Then I'd always err on the side of letting a professional, certified machanic work on the motor--why take a chance?

You risk far more in total loss than the investment made letting a pro work on it.

I believe they sell those devices to put over the intake to run your hose into. also I would not bring that motor to a dealer, that is way too much wasted momey. just pull off the carb, its very easy on this motor. then pull out all the pins and componets, and do a very thorough cleaning. brake cleaner works good for this, then re-assemble the carb. this works wonders on the motor running good. the only thing that makes a motor run bad is the bad gas that we get nowadays, and the carb needs a good cleaning. I would also get the gas can replaced, or empty and clean it out.

make sure when you put it back together, that you get the pins set to the correct flow. I usaully turn the pin in all the way before I take it a part, so I know hoe far out it needs to be when I re-assemble.

I have motors that ran so bad, that they would kill. I just clean out the carb, and it runs like it was brand new and just purrs.
