      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 .

With respect to the tach; is there something that leads you to suspect it's not correct?

Same thing goes for your trim & tilt fluid...

The fluid should be level with the fill plug on the resiviour while the engine is tilted all the way up.

The easiest way to check the tach is against another tach, such as an inductive tach/timing light. I dont know if you have access to one or not. How far off do you think it might be?

thank you for the info now i dont know what type of oil to use in the tilt and trim is it just hydrolic oil or something special and the reason i ask about the tach is because i am not sure if mine is acurate because it is an original with the boat that is a 1986 any ideas if it should be acurate or not? again thanks for any help

I would suspect that your tach is accurate - if it shows you idling around 600-700 in gear, and doesn't top out beyond 5500 or thereabouts I think you'll be just fine.
