      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 .

Trailer bearing hub kit

Recommended Posts

I am going to purchase a new bearing hub kit for my trailer.  First, I need to figure out the spindle diameter size.  The current one on the trailer looks to be 1 1/16 with both bearings being the same size as my trailer is only rated for  max 1,250 lbs.   

However, since my boat trailer is only rated for 1,250 lbs, can 1 1/16 be correct for the bearing size instead of 1 inch?  From what I have been looking at the stores 1 inch is for 1,250 lbs and 1 1/16 is for 1, 350 max lbs. 

If  I bought the  bearing hub kit for 1 inch, would it fit if the trailer is for 1 1/16?

check the number on the bearing or measure the shaft.

 

The only way I'd even consider doing it...match the bearing # or cross-ref it. Don't even try to go by trailer weight; means nothing. Bearing must be exact size or you needn't worry about getting very far with it.

I just changed bearings in both my boat and snowmobile trailer. I took a bearing of each trailer and brought it to the auto parts store. they can measure it with a caliper!

the one thing I got educated on is most these bearing kits are a generic version. if you have an older trailer like mine you may need to get a different size grease seal on the back side. in both my older trailers my spindles had a rise in the shaft and I needed to go to a larger inside diameter seal then what came with the kit.

I have a trailer that uses 1 1/16" and 1" will not work.  It looks like it would fit, but nope.  I get the hub/bearing kit at Northern Tool and it comes with a couple of sizes for the rear seal in the kit. It's been working for me. My trailer is old like smurfy was talking about and my rear seal is larger too.

yea if I ever do this again wont be going to the local NAPA,  nothing against them, but when I get parts I want the correct stuff. rednecks trailer sales did me good. northern tool now that ypu say it would be another good option!

Another suggestion......get a good USA made bearing like a Timken, etc. Those Chinese ones are REALLY junk. Not worth wasting your time installing. Let's face it, nothing ruins your day faster than a seized bearing!

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
