      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

3.4 Intake Gasket Replacement Questions

Recommended Posts

Several weeks ago I replaced the lower intake gasket on my wife's Malibu, 3.1 liter. It seems to be holding so far. Now my daughter-in-law wants me to do the same to her car, a 2000 Impala, 3.4 liter.

I learned a few things doing the 3.1, so hopefully this one will go a little quicker and easier. Is there anything different or special when doing the 3.4 vs. the 3.1?

Are you going to do it this weekend?

I have been meaning to put together a step by step for replacing the LIM gaskets for one of these for quite a while. You do the work, I take the pictures, its a win win! I'll even bring air tools and a compressor!?!?! You have my number if your up for it.

I think I have to bring the boys to basketball in the park or something at 9:00 saturday morning otherwise I'm free?

Sorry, not this weekend. She prefers to wait for a "pay" week, as she is paying for the parts. When I do it, I will probably start on a Friday as beginning tomorrow I have Fridays off through the summer grin It's a nice way to use up some of that vacation time without falling behind at work.

I think I can do it faster this time but you'd probably get frustrated watching me work. I'm pretty good mechanically and electrically but I'm constantly losing time looking for that wrench I had in my hand 5 minutes ago...Oh there it is right in front of me! I also plan to bring the parts to my work (about 30 minutes from the house) as we have a parts cleaner. That works a lot better than a can of degreaser!

I've got a compressor and tools so I'm set. Appreciate the offer. When I do get to it, you're more than welcome to come over and snap away and have a cold with me. Or let me know what you want pics of and I can try to get them and forward to you. I plan to take several, as I did last time, so re-assembly is not such a hassle. Especially for all the wiring harness'.
