      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 .

Lower unit seal??

How hard is it to replace the lower unit seal(s) on a mid 90's Johnson with the V4 lower unit? The dealer in my area shot me a quote of 4 hrs and I figure if it dosen't take any special tools I can do it myself and save the cash. Is this a DIY job or is it best left to the pros?

Leave it to the pros. I don't do mine, to give you an idea.

You can find another shop with better rates, where are you located ?

Its not that difficult, but you do need seal installation tools or some people use deepwell sockets and get by. Personally I use and would recommend the special tools. Its about a 2-3 hr job, but you could also install a new water pump at the same time with no added labor.

Agree with Valv 100%. And have them replace the water pump impellor while they are in there. Anything over 3 hours is gouging. The job does require special tools and therre are some some tricks of the trade since OMC uses double seals on the driveshaft and prop shaft. Ex-OMC dealer (26 years in the business)
