      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 .

Stupid carb

Recommended Posts

Ok I was a diesel mechanic for many years before I went into sales. During all those years I never had the nack or learned how to "hear" or tune a small engine carb correctly, I actaully used to pay a guy to dial in the small engine carbs for me. Needless to say I rebuilt the carb on the old Artic Cat and it runs nice without flooding any more but I want to make sure I have the air mixture screw set correctly. What is the proper method for setting the air mixture on a Mikuni single carb in front of a 500cc Suzuki motor. Is it RPMs, sound, smoke, x amount of turns then rpms?

Stupid carbs.

Mikuni carbs are dummy proof. Turn the idle speed screw in till you get an idle a bit faster then what you want. Next turn the idle air screw in till the engine starts to run rough. Next count the half turns and turn the idle air screw out till it runs rough again. In the process of turning the idle air screw out the engine with speed up and run smooth. You counted your turns, now put the idle air screw back in half the amount of turns. Set the idle speed back to where you want it.

Since were talking about Mikuni carbs. You don 't give them trottle when trying to start them.

I can make a diesel dance but give it two or less sparks plugs and a carb and I normaly fix it by replacement.

Jon, drop it off with Kelly and have him "fix it". When you pick it up bring an extra ski, track and suspension. grin.gif

The idle speed screw is on the barrel. Its tapered and its position stops the slide. The idle mixture is lower and on the bulk of the carb body.

I can see him gently walking over to the welding bench and grabbing the 3lb hammer to "nudge" the carb a little. smirk.gif

I believe my air screw is on top of this unit. I only have two adjustable screws, the idle screw and what must be the idle mix.

I'll see if I can find a picture.
