      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 .

'99 Mercury 90hp problem....HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I decided to take the boat out last night to get some fishing in but it didn't turn out too well. I launched the boat, started the engine as usual, slowly left the launch and about 50 yards out it died. After that I could start it, but anytime I put it in gear and gave it a little gas it died again. I could also start it while having the throttle on full (out of gear of course), it would start and right when it would start getting rev'd high I would pull back on the throttle and it would die again. The bulb it hard and water is coming out of the pee hole. There is also plenty of gas and oil. Any idea's? She has been running great all summer until now.

Verify spark on each cylinder. Sounds like the carbs and the fuel pump need to be rebuilt

My buddies dad has a 75 merc and his motor does the exact same thing until warmed up good. We have to sit at the landing for a good 5-10 min letting it warm up before we can think of taking off.

Sounds dumb, but did you give it plenty of time to warm up? With the summer winding down, the water is colder along with the air temps and it might take an extra few minutes to get up to operating temps.

I would say fuel starvation, could be dirty carbs or bad fuel pump. Try to start it and see if it keeps running while pushing key in (choke).

If it gets better then your carbs needs cleaned or rebuilt.

Mine started doing that a bit last year but didn't think much about it at the time.

This year, I needed to get the carbs cleaned...

Check the fuel filter, check spark, etc.

Also make sure you don't have water in your gas. I had a problem this summer with my boat starting on full throttle and then cutting out as I dropped the RPM's down. I was suspecting the carbs, but turns out I had a bunch of water at the bottom of the tank. Too bad the dealer figured that one out!

WHAT KIND OF GAS DO YOU USE? TRY PREIMIUM AND ADD A CAN OF SEA FOAM TO 20 GALS OF GAS OR HALF CAN TO 10 GAL OF GAS I DO THIS WITH MY 2002 9O AND SHE RUNS LIKE A TOP YOU WILL NOTICE TOP END IS MUCH BETTER TWO. GOOD LUCK. DAN

Does it come to life when you hit the choke just before it dies? I have a merc 90 2002 model. Does the same thing. Been to the shop for a checkup. All was fine. I concluded its just cold blooded! Mine comes to life when i hit the choke! sure is irritating specially when the ramp is busy!!

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
