      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 .

It had been in storage all year in the garage. When I started it up, the auger bit rotated without throttling up. It was pretty cold out for a few days so I took it inside, let it warm up for a few hours, and cranked it up again. The bit did not rotate without throttling up like before. Then I let it stay outside overnight, started it up, and once again the bit rotated without throttling up. Maybe the linkage is gummed up? Didn't do this last year at all.

Thanks for all replies wink.gif

Maybe try adjusting the idle set screw. Mine needs adjusting once and a while.Did you put fresh gas in the tank? Some times if the gas/oil mixture is differant from last year it while idle to rich or to lean.Ajusting the idle set screw on the carb. should help.

I put fresh gas in before cranking it it. I'll try the idle screw, thanks!

Is the engine running any faster when you start it up after sitting outside? If not, the clutch is just a little sticky. Try this but BE CAREFUL!!! If you have bench vise, clamp the auger in the vise, start the engine, hang onto the handles and rev up the engine slightly until you feel it start to pull. Hold it there for about a minute and release the throttle. If you do not have access to a bench vise, start the auger and place a board under the bottom of the auger. Put your foot against the bottom of the auger and step down on the flighting to hold the auger down. Then, rev up the engine slightly until you feel it pushing against your shoe. Hold the throttle there for about a minute. Either method should be enough to burn any grease that may have accumulated off the clutch pads or drum. If that does not help, the gear box will need to come apart and the clutch cleaned up that way.
