      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 .

60 HP Johnson Won't Start When Warm

Recommended Posts

Early 90's Johnson 60 HP starts and runs fine when cold. Runs fine until shut off, but then won't start again when warm. Any ideas of where to start?? Need it for a trip next weekend so I'm hoping for an easy fix. Please help!!

Any more details? It never starts? Does it smell like gas like it's getting flooded?

This is a tough one to diagnose until you can repeat the problem - but what I would do the next time it happens is to check the spark on your cylinders. I'm wondering if one of the power packs is on it's way out and it shorts out when it's hot, but not when the engine is cold.

I presume the motor runs fine (idles good, runs at WOT good, etc) the rest of the time?

I had the same issue on an "87" 70 horse evinrude, would start fine cold and would start OK if I started it back up within say 15 minutes but any longer than that it took forever and at ton of cranking to get it going. Played around with a few things for a few months and finally someone on this board sugguested the that the floats on one or more of the carbs may be sticking somewhat open and flooding the cylinder. Bought the kits and rebuilt the carbs. One carb was so gummed up and cruddy I was amazed it was working at all, one of the others was a little dirty too. To make a long story short it starts cold, warm and in between now.

rainlylakefisher, I had a 89' 60 hp johnson that would do that exact thing and also would bog down when going from trolling or idle to taking off to get on plane.And like was stated check your carbs and spark.And also I beleive if you pull the hood off and look on the left side of the engine there should be a red plastic lever.That is the manual choke I know I had to turn(flip) that lever the other direction from where it was at and it would start and then flipped it back to its original position after it started. For whatever reason the choke would come on when warm and then moving the lever would take it off and would stay off when the lever was put back to its original position after starting. Give it a shot and see if it helps. Good Luck I know it was aggravating

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.

      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
