      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.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
