      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 .

Swapping lower units?

Recommended Posts

Pikeslayer

Im rebuilding a 1959 StarCraft so I want to stay with the older engine. I have a 75 horse evinrude with electric shift that works good but the power head is fryed due to some water and vacume lines mixed up on the auto choke by the previous owner. I bought a 75 horse johnson that is one or two years older than the evinrude but runs sweet,I thought! I put it on the boat to try it out and when I power up in forward at about 1/4 throttle I beleave the gears in the lower end slip(just for a sec.) and then its fine.It does this every time.I tryed to ajust the linkage but it didnt help. Im wondering if I can swap the lower units! These moters are early 60 models, confused.gif

I forgot to mention that the johnson lower unit is a manuel shift type.

So you are swapping the bad manual shift lower with your good electric shift. I don't know if it will work, you have to pull both of them and check driveshaft splines, they might be different.

Check the drive shaft splines like Val said. I don't know if the shift lever and linkage will work though.

You might be better off changing the power head if the splines match up.

I'd look into the slip first before I tried the above.

Could be something simple like the shear pin.

Hannay's (I could of spelled wrong) on Central and Broadway could help! They helped me threw some very tough stuff with old boat motors. They are in Mpls. Mn.. Or it could be just trial and error. Unfortunatly, the error is very costly or the shaft will just not slide in. The main thing is you do not want to damage female splines in process. Again like stated above, the shift linkage may not line up. !!!Becareful of this, I have bent those small little shift linkage shafts before!!! Elec. might not have this. In the end

fixing the current one might be best option. Tension's hit it right on the nail head.

Good luck! smirk.gifcrazy.gifconfused.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

The drive shafts are the same so Im OK there, Theres only two wires comeing up out of the elect.shift lower unit so Im wondering how it functions and how I would hook it up! PS I live on the Iron range Shackbash. Thanks for the tip on Hannays but I don't get to the citys very often.

The 2 wires just plug into the remote control. There is no external solenoids, they are inside lower unit, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I would replace powerhead instead, but it's a tougher job.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
