      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 .

Water Pump Impeller Replacement 70 Evinrude

Recommended Posts

I've had the motor for a dozen years so I guess it is time to replace the water pump impeller. It's an '84 70 horse Evinrude. I'm not a mechanic, but I have wrenched a little. How involved is it and are there schematics available on the internet anywhere? I can't seem to find much info. Anything peculiar to this motor or any other advice would be great.

I don't think you'll find anything online, go to a store and get a manual for your motor, it is a simple job but needs to be done correctly, it will take you probably 2 hours first time, then considerable less next time.

I would replace it every 2 or 3 years, part cost $ 20.00 and a sat morning before open water is all you need, it will save your motor from costly repairs.

Thanks Valv. I tried to track down a manual and have not been able to as of yet. I went to buy the impeller and it was $38 and the entire kit (orings and I'm not sure what-all, I haven't picked it up yet) was $50. Did I get ripped off?

I was going to talk to you about this at the swap meat, but you had lots of folks BS'n with you.

No, you didn't get ripped off, put probably bought more than you need. Usually the O Rings and seals are OK and the impeller is all that needs to be replaced (and purchased).

Seeing as how I'm betting that the impeller has never been replaced, (it hasn't since I have owned it) I thought I would have the kit on hand just in case. It wasn't that much more money to have the works.

Yep... understood. The $20 price Valv gave you was very likely for just the impeller.

Sounds like you bought the lower seal kit too. Thats a fair price. Get yourself the manual and replace the seals at the same time you do the impeller.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.

      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
