      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 .

is it road speed related or engine speed related? does it change if the vehicle is turning left or right?

Could be wheel berg, could be rear end, could be tires or could be the trans?

Where are you hearing the noise come from? What speeds do you hear it at and what trans is in it?

I would jack the front end up and check wheel berg's for play. Check the tires for cupping/flat

spots or rotate them to see if the noise changes. If nothing becomes of anything after this, you could sample/check the rear diff fluid for large amounts of metal in the fluid. You could also check for slop in the pinion by grabbing the drive shaft at the yoke/U-joint a moving back and forth. You could also check for play at the tail shaft of the trans. There is a berg/bushing that can wear in the tail shaft. Will it cause a noise like this, I do not know.

it get louder as you get on the gas harder. tires are new,the whole front end is new, everything in the rear end is EXCEPT the bearings around the carrier. the trany was completely gone threw before we put it back together. oh and i forgot to say it was just finished a week ago we completely re did it and now we got this noise?

Is the noise there if you are sitting still with the clutch depressed and reving the engine? If no, then it's somewhere in clutch, trans, drivetrain.

Is the noise there when coasting?

If no,

Then it is a part that is noisy under load. Bearing, or gear, probably in the rearend, tranny, or wheels.

If yes,

Does it vary with vehicle speed or engine speed? Vehicle speed points you at tires, wheel bearings, rearend, etc. Engine speed points at transmission or maybe clutch.

If it varies in pitch depending on what gear you are in look at the tranny.

Can you feel vibration at the stick?

What did you do in the tranny?

Replace gears? Unless you do that in a set you'll get some vibration for a while.

Got gear oil in the tranny and rear end?

Are you using or did you use the E-brake?

Stuck shoes? Check for heat after you ride.

Drive shaft out of balance or(my first guess) if the rear end is lifted or sagging off setting the U-joints in relation to the drive shaft.

Could also be a bad U-joint.

Base on the added info, I would say you need to pinpoint where the noise is coming from.

Was their a reason these where not done? I would assume then new ring and pinion, pinion berg's, axle berg's. Who set up the pinion and how?

Frank has a good idea on the U-joints, unless they are new.

I would not look at this hum not only as a possible area you over looked or have not replaced. It might be something that was not put back together correctly.

Well of course it get louder the more you get on the gas. That's the tires squealing and the engine roaring.

I had the hum in my 2000 silverado, louder with the more speed you got. Put it up on the lift, got a doctors stethoscope (sp) and checked the bearing points in the rear end, turned out to be the bearings.

ok so we had a guy check the trany out and he said nothing was wrong with it and it should have plenty of life left so we just had seals put in it. all the fluids are correct and full. the u-joints are new but the drive shaft wasnt ever balance except from the factory. wheels and tires are new and balanced. its a posi rear end if that means anything? so would i be maybe in the ball park if the bearings around the carrier could be bad? this car sat for 15years also

Okiee Dokiee grin

What is the gear ratio of the rear end? Is the car new to you this year? Have driven the vehicle before with this rear end in it?

    • Scrapes and Rubs started popping up first week of October. The young bucks are doing most of the activity and most of it done at night or right at dawn or dusk. Monday night had 3 bucks- spike, fork and a 6 pointer come in to light rattling at 6:50 pm. They worked 2 fresh scrapes that I had put buck urine in and the fork and 6 pointer had a 5 second sparring bout then went on about there business feeding together.
    • It took Garnett, Sprewell, and Cassell about 15 games to gel. We'll have a much better feel for this team after about 10 games.
    • The walleye bite remains strong!  Report is very similar to last weeks. Walleyes are staged in front of Pine Island, Graceton Beach and Zippel Bay in 18-30'.  Anglers sorting through a few small fish for every keeper.  Most anchored up with jig and shiner.  Pink, pink/white and gold have been the best colors. Reefs holding fish as well.   Rainy River anglers finding success up and down the river.  Schools of shiners coming into river randomly right now.  When they do, the walleyes are close behind.  Some days excellent, some days catching fish but not a slam dunk based on whether shiners are moving through.  Vertical jigging tipped with a shiner while anchored is the go to method. Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success as well.  Smallmouth bass, pike and crappies showing up.    Up at the Northwest Angle, in MN waters walleyes are crushing jig and shiners. Orange and chartreuse were the hot colors this week. Big pike being caught trolling minnow baits.  In Ontario waters, minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26' while anchored or trolling.  In addition to walleyes, crappies on fire and jumbo perch active!  Some muskies being caught trolling.  
    • Well, some good things, some bad things... We didn't pull of the win on the road as I'd hoped, but I think there were some positive take-aways... Defensively, we aren't fixed, but we are looking better. Taj jumped off the screen last night with his aggressive D. I think his presence will help a lot! We played good defense at times, but it was VERY streaky. It seemed that throughout the night SA went up by 8-10, then we buckled down to pull with a bucket or tied it up, repeat... Butler looks like he needs a few more games to gel with the boys, but I think his addition can't be overstated. If even for one game, he seemed to light a fire under Wiggins. If we can get some form of consistent 3 point shooting, we will be talking a lot more about wins than losses this year!
    • Way to go B$G 10 hockey, probably one of the greatest rivalries in hockey, Gophers and Fighting Hawks, this weekend and it's not televised.
    • I saw a couple smalls bucks sparring this morning. There was a small doe near them and one of the bucks chased her around for a little bit. 
    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
