      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 .

Impeller replacement 04 Yammy 40hp

Recommended Posts

Fish On! Guide Service

It's time to replace the impeller on my '04 40hp Yammy 2 stroke and I'm seeking help on what parts need to be taken off to get the lower unit free. I've replaced an impeller before, just not on this unit, so If anyone can give me insight as to which bolts (or other parts) need to removed to get at the impeller, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

FOGS

If you've done it before it's fairly similar - put the motor in gear, remove all the visible bolts that connect the lower unit to the midsection (probably 4). Then, remove the trim tab via the bolt on top of it in the mid section and remove the last bolt from under the trim tab.

That's it... remove the housing, replace the water pump and away you go...

Much easier then I had anticipated. 40 minutes tops time to replace the impeller and lube the splines. The last impeller I replaced was on a 2hp Johnson without forward-nuetral-reverse and this impeller replacement felt like it went much better then the last.

Is the purpose of placing the motor in gear to prevent turning of the spline when re-installing the lower unit?

Thanks,

FOGS

The main reason is to help keep your gearcase in the correct gear - forward or reverse. Sometimes if you leave it in neutral it gets out of sync and it can be a hassle to get it all straightened out.

Glad to hear it worked out for you.

When installing a new impeller you will often turn the drive shaft anyway. when you go to reinstall the lower you can rotate the prop shaft to realign the splines. as well as keeping the unit in the correct gear. take caution not to move the shift shaft or shift the motor at the control end, once the unit has been removed.
