      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 .

StrikeLite Question for Big DS

Recommended Posts

wallmounter

We bought a new StrikeLite auger and it says you have to lay it down on a certain handle side. As I understand it (and definitely correct me if I am wrong) you have to lay it on the gas tank side so the gas doesn't drain backwards into the carb.

Problem is, we already have the mad dog auger mount rigged up on the four wheeler and I want to know do we have to reconfigure the mount for the auger to travel with the gas tank side down or can the auger be placed on one of the longer sides?

Thanks for the help.

Last year I took mine in to StrikeMaster to cure a Hard Starting issue. The tech told me that the Semi-circle tabs on the handle are designed so that you can lay the auger down in the back of a pick-up. The tabs are situated on one of the longer sides as you inquired about, and they fit nicely in the ribs of the bed. I think the only way you're NOT supposed to lay them down is with the Gas Tank up, and I still try and keep it with the "This Side Up" sticker, up 90% of the time. A quick call to their customer service will confirm this.

What TimBuck2 said. They don't want the engine flooded with gas because it will get in the crank case and that could prove to be catastrophic for the little engine. There is also some issue about the oil seeping by the rings into the combustion chamber. If you can't keep it "this side up" on the ATV rack, then yes, some modifications would be in order.

Thanks for the replies guys. We found a modification that works keeping "this side up". It's not quite as stable as if we had left it laying on the "long side" but it seems like it will work.

A week ago my dad set it opposite way while it was running- oil shot out of the exhaust. No problems with it though. I showed him the sticker and he hasn't done it since
