      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 .

I have a 96 old's delta 88 with a 3.8l. It needs a water pump, but I can't get 1 bolt out because of the power steering pully is in the way. How do I get that bolt out with out taking the whole power steering system out?

Some times you just have to do things. This is why repair shops charge $80 to $100 and hour. Can you get one of those ratchet end wrenchs in their? If you can keep lines hooked up, it should not be much to remove pump. It may take a puller, that you local parts store could provide (possibley rent).

I can get at the bolt and get it almost out, then it hits the pulley. I can't even see the mounting bolts for the power steering pump. I'm not sure if I could get a puller in there and if I did how would I get it back on (the pulley)?

Some pullers are very small. they only have an inside bolt and a stop. It sounds like you need to pull the pully. It their a hole in pully to access a extention and socket?

To take the pully off? The water pump bolt hits the very edge of the pulley if I could just move the darn pully 1/2 inch to the left it'll come right out.

Sounds like you need a puller for that pully. Could you slightly unbolt power pump to get that 1/2" space?

yes you need to pull the pulley off and it will have to be pressed on too .there is a special tool for both jobs.

I don't remeber talking the pulley off a 3.8 to replace the water pump. If you look through the holes of the power steering pump pulley you should see the bolts that hold the pump on. I think there are 2. I think they have a 13 mm head. you should be able to remove them through the holes in the pulley. Once they are out the pump will move back enough to get the bolt out.

The bolt tuoches just the edge of the pump pulley. So you can't line up the holes to go though it. If the bolt was about 2 turns smaller it would come out. confused.gif

Can I pull the pulley off and press it back on with it still in the car?

I think what airjer is saying is to loosen the power steering pump, that'll give you enough play to get the water pump bolt out.

I believe what airjer is saying is correct, I thing there is 2 holes in the p/s pulley, and they are offset abit, one of them should line up with the p/s pump bolts, then just lift the pump up out of the way.

If by chance you still have to remove pulley, these are the types of puller's you may need. I know these images might not be your exact pump, but should be simmiler.

Good luck!

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
