      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 .

John Deere Engine Problems

Recommended Posts

I have a little JD riding mower with an 8 hp rear engine. It starts fine and runs fine until a certain point - when it gets warmed up/hot - at which point it stops and won't run again until it cools down. I have checked the fuel line, the carb, and I don't know what to do next.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!

My money would be on electrical. I bet when it gets hot the ignition quits working, either due to a bad wire or the points. When it won't start try pulling the plug wire and seeing if there is spark

The fix would be the coil.It may show spark but it could be weak. smirk.gif

I have a smaller (6.5) horsepower push mower that does the exact same thing. If it is possible, slow the rpms down before shutting it off, and then "feather" the shut down. I do it with the safety bar on the mower, you maybe could use the seat safety switch? What I mean by feather, is let it almost die and bring it back just enough to not let it die completly. Do this a few times, finnally let it die. If it starts shortly after, it is a fuel problem. The motor is choking itself out. When you feather it off, it uses enough of the fuel in the carb so it will start again. If you shut it off at WOT it fills the carb with fuel and it will never start, well it will if you pull it (I don't have electric start) about 100 times. When the motor has time to cool down, the fuel in the carb has time to evaporate. My neigbors JD mower does the same thing. Is it a briggs and straton INTEK?

Good Luck

I have a B & S 18 hp intek on my mower that does similar problem sometimes. If I park it after mowing with over 1/3 tank of gas, apparantly the needle and seat/carb float stick or hang partially open because it will really flood - even filling the cylinder with gas (it only does this about 1 out of 3 times). To restart mine I have to pull the spark plugs, spin it over with them out to get rid of the excess gas, replace them, then it will restart. I try to always finish with the tank low - then no problems.

I have a J.D. garden tiller that has the same problem, flooding the engine with gas. I installed a in line shut off purchased from a local parts house in the gas line.

You get it figured out let me know. I bet it is a Model 68 grin.gif. I have the same one and same problem. I have given up on trying to figure it out and know it sits in the coner of the garage and collects dust.

I think I have it figured out! By Accident!!

I was wiggling all of the wire connections and one broke off in my hand. I put a new end on it and tightened it back down and magically it has run great since.

I haven't dug deep enough to know where it goes to but it is a wire on the carburator side slightly to the rear of the carb that goes up underneath toward the coil? maybe?

Thanks for the good tips on the thought that maybe it was electrical. In fact I had ordered a new ignition and coil but now I don't need it. I can try to post a picture of the wire if anyone is interested. grin.gif

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?

      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.

      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
