      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 .

Definitely sounds like you need a new shop. Have you tried Duanes Outboard yet? He's always been great to me. He is located by Chalstroms off of the Olson Rd.

I have an "87" 70 horse Evinrude and it idles fine, so it is not just and Evinrude thing. I would start with cleaning/rebuilding the carbs. You could also check out iboats.com there is alot of good info there.

I'll second the motion on Duane's Outboard. They are honest and have bailed me out in a crunch. Joe's marine in Ely is another quality outfit, but may be a tad far for you.

I will give a 3rd. I had an old Evinrude 20 and ran like a top. Had a shop in Southern Minnesota give it the once over every 2 years. I have a four stroke now. I kind of miss the old rumble of the 1980 20hp 2 stroke.

You may want to compression test it first. That's not hard and will eliminate some possible major problems. That engine has been noted to burn the pistons at the exhaust ports. If it scored a piston it mostlikly will not idle.

Adjust the ignition points. Probobaly needs to be re-gapped.

Make sure you are not using ethanol gas. Especially if you have an aluminum tank. We bought a 70 horse Evenrude new in 1987 and took it back to the dealer 3 times in the first few weeks we had it. On the third time they asked us where we buy our gas. We told them and they said that particular gas station sold gas with ethanol. They said they would fix it again but if we run any ethanol in the future it would void the warranty. The mechanic said the ethanol breaks down the aluminum in the gas tank and totally messes up the fuel system when it gets in there. After switching to Ethanol free gas we haven't had a problem since. Ethanol is garbage.

Jiffy....infact it is an aluminum tank..hmmm? I haven't been picky about fuel. I think I'll try new fuel...then if that is a no go...take it in to the fella on the rice lake road. Thanks guys...its a big help...Man it would be nice if it would idle.
