      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 .

9.9 Johnson break in

Recommended Posts

JoeT

Just picked up a 2003 Johnson 9.9 2 stroke that's new just been test run. Didn't have a manual can't get it down loaded from Johnson my computer keeps locking up. Does anyone know the proper way to break it in. Oil to gas ratio lower unit grease what type things like that etc, I can call a dealership on Monday, but have Sunday off and would like to give it a try.

Thanks for the help.

Oil ratio is 50:1, run it normally but don't put a huge load on it, get to full throttle for few seconds then back off, mostly run it at 3/4 throttle max.

Approx a couple of hours should be fine.

Gear oil should be already in the lower unit, in any case any type of marine gear lube will do it.

Thanks Valv, if the rain holds off I'll put a couple of hours on it this afternoon.

I believe what is typical for break in on a two stroke is double oil - so put in two pints to 6 gallons for the first tank and try to run as much of that tank out as you can before filling it again.

Good luck!

You are right Marine man, I was finale able to get my computer to down load a manual. First 10 hours mix the gas oil 25 - 1 10 min at fast idle next 50 min not more then 3500 Rpm switch it up, next hour bring to plane back down to 3/4 then a min or 2 wide open, next 8 hours different Rpm
