      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 .

Rope recoil

Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 Johnson 30HP 2 stroke and the rope doesn't always recoil. Is there something that I need to lube or clean?

Thanks for any help

Just spray WD-40 into the recoil...if that doesn't work let go of the rope! wink.gif

Replacing the rope may help, too.

Most of the time it is caused by the grease drying up and getting a little sticky where the recoil sits against the cover. If you take the hood off there should only be a couple of bolts that hold the recoil on the motor. Take the recoil off and set it on your bench and use your JB-80 or something similar. Spray around the outside of the plastic spool and let it run in underneath. Do not try and remove the spool or the recoil spring may end up in your lap. WD-40 will tend to compound the sticking problem. Don't ask me why WD-40 does that, but it does over time. My favorites are JB-80 and PB Blaster. If the rope is not frayed anywhere you should not need to replace it.
