      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 .

Evenrude with manual tilt assist problem

I don't know how many people are familiar with these but I have an '89 Evenrude with the hydraulic assist manual tilt. When I took it out of storage this weekend I couldn't get the motor to tilt up. I replaced the cable that runs from the lock/release handle down to the hyd. assist unit a year or so ago so I wouldn't think thats the problem. Any suggestions?

You must of had one of the last trim assists that still worked. I've went though 3 cables. levers, and cylinders.

I didn't think you could still get parts. As you may know the lever is plastic and flexes. That could be the problem.

You can take the cable off the lever and get something on the end of the cable to pull it out and test it. Its takes some force to do that. With an assistant have them try and lift the outboard. If the outboard will trim up an down while you have the cable pulled out then your problem is in the lever. Like I said they are plastic and the amount of pull needed to engage the valve is a lot.

I ended up finding a complete used OEM trim set with the wiring, switches and relays. That wasn't easy to find either. A new OEM T&T will run you more then the outboard is worth. You can get an aftermarket trim for a lot less but then you have a 6" setback. If this is on a tiller that might not work out for you because of the added reach.

Good Luck.

I tried tightening the cable thinking mabey it had stretched or something over the winter but that didn't seem to do anything. When the cable went bad before I could move the motor up and down with alot of effort, but this time I cannot get it to move at all. Like you said, I am debating even hauling it into the dealer to see if can be fixed because its probably more expensive than the motor is worth. The cable alone was something like $125, which is absolutly rediculous.

Wish I could be more help, that trim assist is aggravating I know. The amount of movement on the cable is small so adjustments have to be made a hair at a time. If you get it to tight you'll ruin the plastic lever.

I don't remember if the there was a bypass you to allow you to lift and lower the outboard. That'll get you by but your outboard will be trimed down. That might or might not be too low and you'll plow water.

Thanks for the info. I know what you mean about overtighening the plastic lever, when I put the new cable on one full turn went from not releasing to breaking the connector. In regards to the manual release I have never seen anything that looks like one on there, what should I look for? Thanks again.

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
