      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 .

Fuel Problems 95 F-150

Recommended Posts

I have a 95' F-150 w/ a 300 six manual tranny. This winter one tank started to leak when filled too full, so we just didn't use it. Now it's spring and I ran both tanks pretty much dry, truck started to cough and I limped into town. Got about 1/4 full in each tank and I can't get it started. It almost fires when switching tanks while starting but not quite. Soo my question is: does the truck need to be running to switch tanks? and could it be a prob w/ fuel filter or fuel pump? I greatly appreciate any insight cuz i'm kickin myself for letting this happen.

Each tank should have a "lift" pump in them and there should be a high pressure pump on the frame. With the switch on the front tank have someone turn the key on while you listen at the tank. You should here a buzz for about 2 seconds. Do the same thing with the back tank. Now if you don't hear anything at either tank you could have:

bad pumps

Bad fuel pump relay

tripped inerta switch

wiring problem.

This should get you started.

When I had one, mine didn't seem to? Nor does the 96 that I have now. I just turn on the key and once powered up, I could switch from tank to tank. Maybe by running them low, some crud got into your gas line filter?

I tied FishingTech's advice and heard a buzz on both tanks and am thinking about changing the inline filter. From what I read it says disconnect battery, open fuel caps and switch pressure relief switch on driver side floor before proceeding. Guess I'll swap out the filter and hope that dose it. Thanks for any insight.

i had the same thing happen. i put more parts to it and still didn't work, so i started to jump sensors, ended up being the tps sensor. that would be the throttle position sensor.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
