      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Rear U-joint replacement on Sportsman 500

Recommended Posts

So I finally get around to greasing the 22 zerks on my '97 Sprortsman 500. I've done it before but apparently not enough. A couple REAR U-joints are grinding and have a little slop.


Any special tools required to do a change out on my own?

Too much of a pain, take it in?

Change one - change all?

I'll call for a cost on them but I'm just wondering if someone has some insight through doing this before on their own.

I have done U-joints on trucks before. It's just sometimes these toys seem a little different.

Thanks for any input.

If you've done them on trucks before, the SP shouldn't be an issue. I'm the type of person who would change them all, but that's just me.

Not sure of special tools, never had them apart before.

Thanks Lep,

Yup, simple simon. Just picked up the new ones today. Looks like the job will only take a couple hours from tools out to tools in. smile

BTW, I have the easy ones. Mid year they had a change and the others are some type of ball and socket in CV boot or something like that.

Simple Simon. crazy

Not exactly like a U joint in a truck. If someone dredges this thread up later and needs help, bring it back up and I'll add some helpful info if you need it.
