      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 .

I just bought this boat and it has a 40hp evenrude on it. The problem I am having with it is it will start with the key but will not shut off with the key. It's around a 1999 motor. Would anybody have a idea about where to start looking for the problem.

Thanks

Check for a bad ground on the black wire coming off the harness to the motor block. The switch kills the motor by grounding out the ignition. If thats not a bad connection, look if the wire became unhooked from the switch or has corroded. good luck.

You should get a service manual. My guess would be the ignition switch is bad and is not grounding out the ignition. There is a condition when carbon builds up and starts to glow red hot called "deiseling) where the motor will run non stop even without an ignition. Some Seafoam Deep creep will help this. If you have problems where the motor starts to run away diconnect the fuel line and choke the motor to kill it. Good luck

It starts good and isn't dieseling it just keeps idling. I'm thinking it's a ground some where to will have to follow the ground wire to the motor to see where it is hooked.
