      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

hooksetter

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

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
