      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 .

A question for Oilman

Recommended Posts

If I was to use Amsoil synthetic rear diff lube in my 02 f350 with limited slip, do I need to still add the friction modifier, or not?

I will let the Oilman answer this question!

But, (this is just what I have heard); Ams Oil has the modifier in the fluid and is cheaper. That is just what I heard and is not a fact on my part.

First, the AMSOIL "Corporate" answer, taken straight off the product data sheet: "AMSOIL Severe Gear is compatable with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock friction modifier additive."

My personal experience. Dodges - always add the extra additive, the Dodge 3500 needs 2 bottles. Fords and Chevys over half the time do not need the additive, but it can't hurt to use it.

Remember with all types of limited slip differentials, any time you do anything on them, even just a differential oil change, ALWAYS do a run-in - take the vehicle to a large open parking lot or field and do half a dozen slow figure 8s. Even with additive most will chatter the first several turns. If you don't put in the additive and it chatters at the end of the run in, you need it.

If you would like a copy of the data sheet, send me your e-mail address and I will send it back - pdf attachment.

Ya, Don!

I know the manufacture of some vehicles (under warranty) can throw us regular Joe’s a loop holes on synthetics, but I have been an Ams Oil backer since high school. Anything I run synthetic has Ams Oil in it and it helps for starting in cold conditions and much more.

Thanks dude for the info!
