      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 .

40 horse merc cutting out at idle

Recommended Posts

Despite catching a 22' smallie, last Saturday was a frustrating day. In addition to my boat having a small leak and my starting battery loosing its charge, my Merc was cutting out at idle speed. It operates fine in WOT, but while pulling back trollin and shifting in between neutral and forward the engine would cut out. At first it happened every 5 minuets are so, but then frequency picked up to cutting out nearly once a minute. Other then this new phenomenon the engine works fine. Any ideas on what is causing this and how it might be fixed? Thanks in advance for your help!

I would start with replacing new plugs and fuel filter.

When is the last time you replaced water pump impeller, checked compression and had carbs cleaned ?

Like Valv said. I would bet it is the low speed circuit of the carb is gummed or has a bit of grit in it. Not sure on a merc but there is probably a mixture adjust screw. Typically there are small holes inside the carb that is part of that system that a hole or more can plug up and give you the problems your are experiencing. What is the model and serial number for the motor?

Check out part number 24. This is typically a certian amout of turns from clockwise like 1 1/4 turn or so. Part 33 is a welsh plug that covers the holes I mentioned. Turn part 24 clockwise till it lightly seats counting the turns. Then unscrew is all the way out counterclockwise. Shoot some carb cleaner in there with a can of carb cleaner with a straw. Put the screw back in and reset it the way it was before and see if that improves it.
