      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 .

Wiring outboard to ignition and other questions

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm completely lost here. I've got no guide to go with except that maybe the cable colors should match as best as possible.

Second question is testing the outboard. How would I test it to see if it works? I know I need to get a tank and filter and all that other fun stuff. But I'm lost as far as hooking it all up. Anybody know of an excellent, picture/description HSOforum I can look at?

If you know who makes the motor I would find a dealer that sells that brand and take it there.

They should be able to help you.

If you want to start and outboars with no harness, just plug in battery cables, then use a thick electrical wire and touch large red positive on solenoid with small yellow or yellow/red on same solenoid.
This bypasses all circuits, but be careful of 2 VERY IMPORTANT things:

1- Motor will start or at least turn over, so keep tools/hands/etc. out of the way.
2- You won't be able to shut it off quickly, best way is to pull choke and/or a spark plug wire off.

Most ouboards are wired "on", to stop them you have to ground ignition, that's what key does.

Surface Tension, it's a 40hp Johnson. No clue what the year is. Remote, not tiller.

Where can I find the year? It's in the boat, not on it right now. The boat isn't quite ready to hit water. Still fixing things up.

If it has letters with model number, it's from 1980 and up.
Use last 2 characters and match with word

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Example: Model 50TLER

If it has numbers only check with dealer.
