      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 .

another tilt and trim issue

Recommended Posts

Ok I have read a few other posts on this issue and dont want to waste anyones time but here is my particular situation on my 1992 Evin. 90hp V4.

I bought it last year. I hit the switches on the motor once when I first bought the boat, with no results. I figured I could live without it since the controls on the handle by steering wheel work. A couple of months ago it took a few tries to get the motor up when leaving the lake and it had to be done by repeatedly quickly pushing the up button on the back of the motor until it made it up. It took about a half hour. Everything was fine for a couple of weeks. All of a sudden I have only down on the handle up front and only up by quickly pushing the button on the back again. I took it in to a shop and they said it needs new tilt motor to the tune of $550. I replaced the relays and it made no difference. Is there a difference between relays and solenoids?? I have seen quite a bit of mention about solenoids in other posts on this subject but not relays. I hate electrical issues. All that being said, how much of a chore is it to replace it myself? I will have to make the decision tomorrow.

ANy input would be appreciated.

Thanks

Moby1, relays and solenoids are same thing (in this case).

I would follow all the wires from motor side switch and handle on remote to any connector, unplug it, clean it, if possible put some dielectric grease on it and reconnect, you might have bad connections.

But.... the side switch can go bad, banging on it doesn't help , I found some were bad or worn, especially if the rubber cover breaks, water goes in and corrodes.

My prognosis is: motor needs new brushes (very common). It's a PITA to remove but you will want to take it to a electric shop where they rebuild motors, it will cost no more than $ 100.00, and quite possibly a lot less. Don't take it to a dealer, they will replace it with a new one, they don't service them., and charge a fortune.

These units are so simple it's amazing, just a rotor inside a metal housing with 2 magnets, bushing and 2 brushes on bottom, 1 bushing on top and that's it.... a drill has better parts in it and cost 4 times less.

I was having some problems with the trim and tilt on my "87" 70 horse evinrude and went through all the troubleshooting on the relays etc. and finally traced to the rocker switch in the handle. They do where out. I would start with the simple stuff and work up from the there. I do believe you can get the switches from somewhere other than a marine dealer cheaper. I think I paid some ridiculus price fo the switch but I wanted to get out fishing quick.

Follow Vals advice, I had about the same thing happen. A repair shop said the motor was probley bad, I jumpered the relay box and the tilt, trim worked just fine, it was bad connections.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
