      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 .

Common problem, fixed it on my blazer a couple years ago. I believe that you got to remove the power steering pump pulley to get at the last bolt to remove the pump, and then the bracket. I don't remember anything weird with the ac pump except you pretty much just want the pump un atached from the bracket and set aside to get the bracket off. Other than that its smooth sailing. Just remember to use the silicone for the end seals on the manifold and follow it up 1/4" onto the gaskets on each side front and back. Maybe a good time to slap a new water pump on there since your in there too, much easier when its all apart.

Don't remove the pump. Once all the bolts are loose/off the bracket will slide forward enough with the pump still attached to replace the gasket. Make sure you have the bolts/nuts off on the very bottom of the bracket. There is also one behind the pump that needs to be loosened but not removed. Thats the one that is probably holding you up.

Also there is no need to pull the upper plenum off to replace the lower intake gasket. That will save you a little bit of time!
