      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 .

Johnson outboard warning alarm

Recommended Posts

Big Walleye 58

I am having a problem with the warning alarm on a 1984 115 hp johnson outboard and am wondering if anyone out there has any ideas .

Last weekend was out in this boat and could smell a faint burnt smell . After some research figured out it was the warning alarm in the throttle / shift handle box that had slightly burned / melted .Note that the alarm never sounded. I bought a new alarm and installed which is a very easy thing to do but now as soon as you turn the key on the warning alarm stays on .The alarm sounds if the motor is running or not .It may just be coincidence but have recently filled the oil resevoir and changed the water pump /impeller but I don't believe these are related to the problem or are they ? Thank you in advance for your comments .

I have a 96 25hp Evinrude, and when my water pump was bad, the overheat alarm was a solid steady alarm. That sounds like what yours is. Mine would be on as long as the motor was too hot, even if not running.

Does yours sound right away, even when the motor is cold? If so, I would suspect a short somewhere, especially since you mentioned you smelled it when it burnt - that had to be a short somewhere.

If not when cold, but only after running for a while, then I would suspect that the water pump is not working properly. Is it "peeing"?

Water flow is excellent . Alarm goes off even when motor is stone cold .

We see this question quite often. Seems half the time its a bad sensor. Heres a previous thread that might help.
