      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 .

Transfer case seal leaking on 99 dodge cummins

It's a new process transfer case, model number 241 DLD

I had this replaced under warranty about 30K, I have just under 100K now and the front shaft seal going to the front differential is leaking. Can anyone give me some idea's as to why this is happening again? It seems to me I shouldn't be having this problem so soon.

Also how hard of a fix is this? I would like to do it myself.

I should add that I checked the fluid and it was up to the top but it need's to be fixed.

The front differential shaft is also leaking going back to the transfer case to. Any idea on how hard this is to replace?

Something isn't true (out of round) I'm guessing.

That thought came to my mind too. Another thing is maybe a vent plugged?

If it is leaking at the front differential and the transfer case I would have that drive shaft checked as it could be out of balance or just a bad u-joint.

Key word is leaking or seeping. Diff's will seep at one time or another. I have seen many out put shaft seals leak (It may be because I worked at a dodge dealer for last 3 years). Boths seal are not hard to replace. They pay under an hour and a half for both. I would look more at yoke surface to see if it has grove in it or rust, that is tearing seal. I saw more of this than out of balance shaft's. I only can remember one case of out of balance shaft replacment. That was on rear drive shaft though. A seal is cheap, shafts are not.

It did have a drip on it so I think that would be leaking slightly. What kind of work is it for a DIY'er to do it.

The way it looks to me I would need to drain the transfer case.

Then unbolt the shaft and pull the yoke out.

Would I just pry the seal out and install a new one?

Any special seal or just get it at a bearing place?

I guess if it isnt to hard and it lasted me this long I could do it every couple of years. I dont feel any vibration so I do question if its out of round.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
