      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 .

'58 Johnson 10hp

I finally talked the father-in-law to let me dig this old girl out of the corner of the boat house last weekend and I have a few questions. I counted the turns out for the mixture screws, but what are the initial settings to start with? Also, I foolishly was thinking I could put the muffs on when I get it running, but the lower unit only has 1 spout out the back, so what are you supposed to do, put it in a bucket of water or something? Lastly, what kind of mix ratio do you run in those things? Thanks for any help.

I run my '57 johnson 10 hp in a garbage can or just take it to a lake that isn't busy and puts with it at the ramp. I can't remember the mixture. Its either 50:1 or 25:1. I have a motors that take both and I get them mixed up.

on that motor it would be 25:1. Yes U should run it in a barrel but don't run it too long. sounds like its been sitting for a while.

It's been sitting under a pile of junk for 15 years he says. Suprisingly the carb looked like it just ran last week. We've been using a 6 horse on a 16 ft fiberglass for 5 years so needless to say we don't get too far away from the dock. Looking forward to maybe being able to get up on plane. The boat and lake are 4 1/2 hours away so I'll try the garbage can trick.

Thanks for the info.

I just got done doing a motor that has been sitting for about ten years I replaced the impeller,new carb kit,thermastat,fuel lines and fuel pump. I would be willing to bet that U need a new impeller after sitting that long,fuel lines possibly are rotten thermastat could have corrison on it be sure to change the lower unit oil

If you want a dependable motor I'd have to agree with whats been said. Drain and replace the lower unit gear oil, inspect for leaks or water after its first time out.
