      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 .

97 gmc sierra making a loud humming noise!

Recommended Posts

When I accelerate it gets louder. 30 to 40 mph is the worst. I almost don't hear anything at 60. It is definatly coming from the front. I just had the tranny rebuilt a year ago. Any thoughts? Thanks guys

Depends somewhat on the quality of bearing you use. A premium one is about 200 at Napa and the standard grade one is about 125 . Add 150 or so labor depending on where you take it and it should be 275 on the bottom end and maybe 400 or so on the high end.

You never said if this is a 2 or 4 wheel drive, If its 4 wheel drive make sure both hubs are locked out. If one is locked in the other out the dif. will make a real loud hum. If its a 2 wheel drive the above posters got it pegged.

Thanks magyver...it is 4 wheel drive. I have put over 100,000 miles on it and never replaced bearings. I sure hope it's not something to do with dif. Mine is push button 4 wheel drive so how could one lock and the other not?

Does it make the noise all the time, or only in 4wd?

If it only makes the noise while in 4wd then it is possible it is a bearing in the front differential, if not then again the hub and bearing assembly is the most likely.

I'm not quite sure what you are asking about one locking and not the other.

When the veical is changed from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive the front hubs in center of the rim, or wheel unlock, the axle, the dif. and the drive shaft do not turn then. The hubs lock and unlock automaticly. After a period of time rust and dryed grease will freeze one up and it will either be locked in or unlocked all the time. When one is locked and one unlocked the diff. will be spinning 2 times as fast as normal. We had this happen on a trip up north, the oil in the diff. got so hot it started to smoke before could figger out what was wrong. It got so hot it ruined the seals in the diff. I changed the auto hubs to manual lock outs.

What you are saying can be true of older vehicles that used manual or auto locking hubs. There are however no manual or automatic "hubs" on this vehicle, the locking and unlocking occurs in the front differential.

Both front axles are live and turning all the time, but do unlock from the differential.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
