      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 .

Problem with new Ford Camshaft

Recommended Posts

I have an 04 ford f-150 and it needs a new camshaft. Ford said it does not have any. Anywhere in the USA.

It has to build one and was now back ordered another month.

My question is -- is there a problem with these so they run out -- is a recall down the road or do they just not stock parts anymore?

Also -- we can't get an after market -- what is up with that?

Any and all information first-hand or rumor would be great.

Thanks

Hitman

Hitman, a few questions for ya! I am assuming you have the new body style? What engine? Why is it bad? Who said it needed one? What was the truck doing?

To answer your question, no! I can honestly say that I have replaced 1 cam in the 3 valve 4.6, 5.4 engines, and thats because a follower fell out. I just orderd a new head, since it was under warranty and thats what ford recommends. That might be the problem why you cant find one, do to the fact that the head should be replaced as an assy.and not just the cam, being if the cam is bad, you would want new cam bearings, which are part of the head!

I am still intersested why it is being replaced!

hey --

thanks

The rollers wore a few groves in the cam and that is what Ford said to replace it. It is the 5.4. the dealer said it was clicking --

Does that help?

Thanks Hitman! It isnt a comon concern, so that would be why the cam isnt available. I think if you searched for a complete head you will find many of them local, although I am sure they will cost a quite abit more as well!

I show cam price about $200, complete head $1100-1300, I would look used or wait for a cam to show up!
