      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 .

A few years ago I worked at the tecumseh plant I in stalled a propane stand by system. the plant was quite impressive and the people were awsome.

the jiffy I was looking at had a foreign motor on it and was quite impressed with it and the price was really good

Jiffy ran a new engine on the new SD60i model this season, a economic price point of $299.99...that engine is one well proven on Eskimo augers.

2HP PerformanceModelSD60i.jpg

* Engine – Jiffy 45cc

* Gear Ratio – 12:1

* Auger Length – 36”

* Limited Warranty

1Yr.-Engine

1Yr.-Gear Box

1Yr.-Blade

* Transmission – Patent Pending

COLD STARTING PROCEDURE FOR MODEL SD60i

SEE OWNER’S MANUAL FOR SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Mix one gallon of Fresh Winter Blend regular gasoline with one container of Jiffy 2-Cycle oil. Use this fuel blend to fill tank to ¾ full.

1. Press primer bulb until clear gas (return) line is free of bubbles. (2 - 5 times)

2. Move rocker switch on ON or (I) position.

3. Move choke lever to FULL CHOKE or (I\I) position. (Operator’s left)

4. Depress throttle control with left hand and grasp the starter handle in your right hand.

5. Slowly pull starter handle until you feel resistance from engine, then pull vigorously.

6. Without releasing the starter handle or the throttle control, let handle return to original position and repeat step 5.

7. If engine doesn’t start after 5 - 6 pulls, press the primer bulb 2 - 3 times and repeat with steps 5-6.

8. After engine starts running, move choke lever to HALF CHOKE position until engine runs smoothly.

9. Move choke lever to RUN or (III) position. (Operator’s right)

10. To stop engine, push rocker switch to OFF or (0) position.

SPECIAL NOTE: If the engine does not start due to extreme cold temperatures, move unit to warm environment, remove spark plug and wipe off excess fuel, replace spark plug and repeat steps 1 – 9.

The only issue I seen with the new SD60i was the engine shroud was not well supported and a few were cracked early on in use. I was not too impressed with the throttle set up and linkage, I expect that to be changed too.

I think Jiffy is fine tuning this exterior shrouding and linkage and we will see a new look with greater durability but the same engine in "2010".

    •   Now that sounds tasty! Smoked eggs and sliced rare deer heart....with some cold smoke...um num....
    • smoke em up boys ! ! !  
    • Wowzer talk about off topic! From deer hearts to chicken eggs. What's rundave gonna think!
    • I didn't need to see it, but mayhap some technical wizards would feel more at ease with a complete detailed explanation. Also depends on how in-depth yer "crayola app" is.   
    • If the pictures weren't enough, I would have needed to resort to the Crayola app if I wanted to put it into words.
    • You forgot to add the explanation to further educate all that may need it.   The egg, poop and urine (which for a chicken isn't a liquid) exits out of the same hole (aka, the vent, as you can see above). BUT, when an egg comes out, the chicken's Cloaca is turned inside out so that the egg cannot come in contact with the intestines (fecal matter nastiness).  
    • Do the crutches come with it as well?
    • The Tri-beam and the Proveiw are basically the same ducer, just that the Proview gives you infinite ability to dial down, or up your cone angle or sensitivity. The FLX28's low power and weed modes, are the "cat's meow" when dialed in properly. Lastly the color pallet options can be great when dealing with schools of different size fish gathered in confined areas, along with giving your eyes a break from the standard red. Here's my friend Cory Bechtold explaining what I mean....    http://www.vexilar.com/blog/2014/08/28/s-is-for-suppression Don't think this could possibly work on the FLX 28.        
    • "Fine." Yer sounding a bit petulant, Delmar.  Ya know what? YOU were the one that mentioned the "dirty water" they were raised in....on a certain thread on a certain site some time ago....... I found it!   But, that doesn't matter to me. Whatever works for ya.  I just don't eat shrimp anymore because of that. And, the egg is encapsulated before it comes out the butthole....in a shell, unlike other things that come outta there, and make it into the public media.  Snack on some sliced deer heart tartare with some salt and horseradish while ya do some reading...https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/08/14/farmed-shrimp.aspx
