      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 .

Wheel bearing on truck

Recommended Posts

Freckles

I have a 2001 F250 Super Duty. It now has 50,000 miles on it. I know that is low for the year but I don't drive it all the time because the cost of Diesel fuel. Any way when I had 42,000 miles on it the right rear wheel bearing went out at a cost of $285.00 to fix , Now at 50,000 miles it is going out again. doe's anyone out there know what could causing this? I have had other trucks with over 100,000 mile on and never had to replace rear wheel bearings.

Sometimes when a rear baearing goes out, it scars up the axle. If they dont put in a "repair" bearing in those cases, it can cause premature failure of the new bearing.

A repear bearing simply rides on a undamaged portion of the axle.

You don't by chance have a locker rear end do you? If you are hearing the clicking and snapping in a corner and you have a locker I'd say it's the locker making normal noises.

The F-250 SD has a full floating rear axle, they do not make a "repair bearing" for them. It is not likely that the wheel brg has failed again, if it has it was caused by something during repair, improper torque etc. these use a ratcheting type of retaining nut on the bearing and require a special socket to adjust torque and preload. If you hear it around corners and it is a locking rear end, this is not normal, the clutch pack in the diff is bad, when its right there should be no chatter, binding or noise. I would return to where the bearing was replaced and have them ride with you and get diagnosis of the concern. I've seen a few of these bearings go and eat the spindle on the axle housing, that housing costs alot of money (>$2000) so don't wait on it. Have it checked out and once you know what the problem is you can determine your options.

Sounds like it is in the diff to me also. Bearings will usually make a howling noise and will usually get louder or quieter depending on which way you turn (say you start to hear it around 40 mph, if you turn slightly to the left and it gets louder its the right side bearing). I would bet that the noise went away after the first bearing was replaced because of the new fluid that was added. Just a theory!

I pulled the right rear axle out last night and bearings fell out. So I either have something wrong or the mechanic screwed up installing the last one. I borrowed the tool to remove the racheting nut that holds the bearing on , but when I try to turn the nut, the tool just slip out of the notchs. I guess I will try again tonight. I just ran out of time last night.

the clicking noise in the back end of mine was the emergency brake - I just had them remove it as I never use it.

That is really unusual, was this truck ever involved in an accident that you are aware of? If not, I wonder how this could have happened, high speed off roading, frequent major air, do you just have regular seat belts or a 5 point harness? Just kidding, I'm happy you were able to find a good used rearend and the price sure sounds right.

Yes, it was a roll-over. I bought it from a salvage and repairable lot two years ago.

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
