      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 .

Oil type for 2-cycle Montgomery Ward air-cooled outboard?

Recommended Posts

Whoaru99

I have recently acquired this 5-hp outboard and want to try using it for a kicker. It's old, but looks decent (age and general style of the era notwithstanding), and does start up pretty well. Before I actually try to use it, I need to get some fresh gas/oil mix in it.

Since this is an air-cooled engine, do I use a marine/ outboard 2-cycle oil, or a general purpose small engine 2-cycle oil that specifically mentions air-cooled engines?

I would use amsoil saber . It burns nearly smokeless once the motor is warmed up and I dont think youll load the plugs up either.

No need to make this complicated. Any decent two-cycle oil should work for you.

Now, go buy a set of really GOOD ear muffs! grin.gif

Hope it's not too loud since the exhaust does come out under water. If so, I'll get rid of it at no loss except a bit of screwing around time since it was given to me.

I'll keep that in mind if it doesn't work out for me.

Any 2 cycle oil will work. Just an FYI. The engine is air cooled but the exhaust is water cooled so don't run it out of water.
