      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 .

This make sense??

Recommended Posts

2005 F150 that is 'stuttering' when making a left turn. 95 K on it. Friend's rig - the mechanic told him that the oil in the differential is worn out and that it needs to be replaced or an additive put in. 4WD. I'm sure the fluids - differential and trani need servicing but I don't know enough about differential's to know if this fluid idea makes sense.

Thanks for the advice.

These trucks have a limited slip diff in them, and they have clutches in the rear diff to allow slipping on turns, what you are more then likely feeling is the clutches chattering, and this is very comon for this truck. The correct fix for this would be to replace the clutches inside the rear diff, and install new fluid and additive to the rear diff.

But what I would do before this, if the truck was mine, I would try adding a bottle of friction modifier to the rear diff before spending the money to put the new clutches in it.

Yep, the first step in freeing up the clutch disks/plates is to add the friction modifier additive, drive for about 100 miles and see if it goes away. If it does not, then try a full fluid change with the additive. Then worst case if an O/H of the carrier.

9/10 out of ten just putting the additive in will fix it, but it is a good idea to change the fluid, but it is not cheap.

Good luck!

This I have seen work wink and more than twice grin Not a guarantee, but the majority of people who tried it had a good result. 4WE can check, but I swear this was a service bulletin/procedure to try first right from Ford.

Did you forget to put the additive in? grin

That is almost a guarantee in it’s self it will happen and for surely not fix it. Most times this was the case when trying to cure this. The customer or someone did a fluid service and did not put the additive back in.

The only bulletin I know of is the ones to replace the clutch pack assy. and add the friction modifier. I just checked, and didnt see any ssm's or tsb's like that.

There was an internal bulletin from Ford to add some friction modifier to the auto transfer cases for chattering, but later found out the auto 4wd clutches did quit chattering, but the clutches wouldnt last long with the additive in it.

    • I bought the NuWave 6 qt brio a week ago. So far have used it to make onion rings and asparagus. It worked flawlessly for both. Frozen onion rings took 15 minutes at 400 degrees. The asparagus took 10 minutes at 375 degrees. I preheated the unit each time.  It really seemed to seal the flavor in with the asparagus. Could not believe how good it was for store bought.
    • I had to look up this thread before making our purchase.  I saw the NuWave. Power Air Fryer and a Farberware.  We went with the Farberware cuz it was the cheapest for experimenting.     Got it on 400 for 25 minutes now to burn off the manufacturing residues.  Looking forward to getting some chicken wings rubbed down and tossed in that baby!
    • As I write this I am on a ND lake with my kdrill and 750 ft in torque hammer drill.  I have 5 amp/hr batteries and going through 28” of ice I am getting 20 or so holes per battery. 
    • I’m just cranky about my asphalt driveway. I’m on a state highway. Recently a couple Snowmobilers put up directional and yield signs on each side of the driveway entrance near the culverts. The traffic has substantially increased this year. I was so happy to have had the asphalt put down because I use a cane now and could keep it free of ice allowing me to get my own mail in the winter.....not this year. I’m afraid to have it plowed and cleaned. Not only do the snowmobiles pull  the snow back onto the driveway making a new mess everyday, but I’m worried about the asphalt being damaged. They don’t mind digging up the grass so what’s to stop them from driving on it bare? To add insult, a groomer came by this week and groomed even the driveway. I read that guys don’t even drive on their own driveways but mines ok. I can look away from the jumping of my driveway as if you crash, it’s on you...you are disturbing my sleep going the excessive speed to jump it though. can someone help me out? I really don’t want an altercation. I feel if I fell on the ice they’d drive around me or just jump over me. Thanks in advance.
    • The big hawks I have been seeing around this winter, I think are redtails that are hunting metro pidgeons.  I have not personally see the snowy owls myself. 
    •   For sure.  The biggest reason I ever went electric was for cutting holes in the house.  Dollar for dollar I don’t know if you can beat gas for cutting shear numbers of holes.   The improvements made in the past couple years with the cordless drill set ups has been amazing though.  If I had to buy electric again I’d give a good hard look in that direction. 
    • Yeah that’s great but the piggy bank wouldn’t appreciate that I like the ion I’ve used before them before there nice but can’t justify spending  $600 on an electric when I could just by a SM lazer pro and drill as many holes I want. I like electric but amount of holes on a charge is tough to come by without spending a $1000. 
    • Sometimes they’re so pretty you don’t wanna clean em.  I appreciate seeing the pics with clean, dry plumage.  They’re too quick in flight for me to get the full view! 
    • You might get 25-30 holes out of one charge on  40 V Ion in these ice conditions but I wouldn’t count on any more than that.  The Ion X might do better.
    • Not knocking any duck shooters, but have you ever noticed how much prettier birds are in flight than when they are piled up in the mud or on the deck of a boat of tossed in the back of a truck? When you get to be an old guy, with eighty seasons behind you, things like that occur to you. Still love to see them coming in fast to the decoys in early light!
