      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 .

It fixed itself........

Recommended Posts

Not.

I know things don't fix themselves, and PFM has nothing to do with it.

Here's the kooky deal. Wednesday night I drove my rusty but trusty 89 chev pickup home. It was running fine. Thursday morning I jumped in to go to work, cranked it over, no start. I dumped a splash of gas down the carb and it popped right over and ran for a few seconds. This was like 5 in the morning and I didn't have time to mess around so I jumped in my car and went to work.

While at work I was thinking my fuel pump took a dump and I was reveling in the excitment of replacing it. Got home, turned the key, and it started right up. Shut it off, scratched my head and started it back up. Shut it off, got a beer, and started it back up. So on and so on and so on.

This morning, it started right up.

So, the question I have for those more in the know than I am is do these fuel pumps play a few games, work, don't work, work, don't work before they finally go for good?

I have a 2000 malibu that did that for about 3 monthes and it turned out to be the fuel pump. The last straw though was when I was cruisin' along and bam all the gauges lit up like I was going to start it. Of course I had to have about ten people bumper to bumper behind me. smirk

Yes fuel pumps can play mind games. It could last 5 years doing that, or 5 minutes. I would wait one more time, and ck the pressure to be certain that is what it is the next time it doesn't start.

check the wires on the fuel pump. the wifes truck did this for a week before i figured it out. one of the ground wires were broke right at the yellow connecter that goes into the pump. sometimes it wound start and others it wouldnt.

Should be Throttle Body Injection (often mistaken for a carb) on it. Don't be suprised if you pull the tank down and need to replace a chunk of the wiring harness as well as the sending unit and lock ring that holds the pump in place. The fuel filter should still be checked again as the sock on the fuel pump may be deteriorated enough that the fitler is restricted by rust again.

Just curious. In either 88, or 89 you could get the truck with 4b-carb or TBI injection. I couldn't remember which year it was.

    • Thank you for setting this up and keeping track. It was a lot of fun to be somewhat in contention. I don’t really care  one way or the other for the lucky dog. The one good thing is it let more guys get in a week late and still have a shot at winning. Thanks again
