      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 .

Wiper motor

Recommended Posts

92 Chevy 1500- put a new wiper motor in last night. The wipers will sweep the normal length, but now instead of parking at the bottom of the windshield it will pause there for a second and then pop up about 1/3 of the way and that is where it will rest when in the off position. I tried to make every sort of minor adjustment but that would only make them park farther up the windshield. I've tried to manually just force them back down but that don't work either. Think its just a fluke of the motor or did I mess something up on the install?

Ha! Not laughing at you, but at myself smile I did similar thing when I put new motor in my 98 k1500 about a year ago. Folks here helped me, I think airjer and maybe shack and others.

I did not have the starting point correct. Nothing I did would fix it, tried to "reset" the motor memory by taking off the batt cabel, hitting gas pedal to reset codes, disconnecting the wiper motor while it was running, turngin off engine at the timie the wipers were "perfect", you name it, I tried all that stuff before getting the right info here smile

I think you just have to take motor back out when it is at the "rest" position. then align wipers correctly, put motor back in. Also, I was trying to do this from a small hole where the motor gear comes out the firewall... I did not know that it was waaaaaay easier to just remove the plastic "screen" or guard just in front of the windshield. Sooopid me smile That made life easier, but then I crimped a washer fluid hose first time I put it back on, then routed it incorrectly second time, but third time was a charm smile

This half hour job took me all afternoon smile two days in a row, ha! So that is why I am laughing at myself! Good luck!

It is possible that the motor was not in the correct position to be installed. Plug the motor in have somebody turn on the wipers and then turn them off. Wait until the motor stops the motor is now in the park position. Reinstall the motor making sure not to rotate the shaft and making sure the wiper arms are in the correct position. The place where the wipers stop when the switch is off is referred to as the park position.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
