      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 .

Question about new bearing install

Recommended Posts

Towards the end of last season I installed new bearings, races and seals with new bearing buddies, I know I got that part right but the question I have is following the bearing buddy instructions about how much grease to pump in. I followed the directions but the left wheel now has some grease on the inside of the rim. Does this mean the inner seal has been damaged or does it just mean there was to much grease and it had to have a place to go??

Thanks in advance for any info on this

Tom, it means grease was pushed through the seal. Thats not a good thing. Wipe the grease off the rim and keep an eye on it. If it slings more grease you'll need to clean out the hub and bearings replace the seal. When adding grease stop before the spring is collapsed. Really if the spring starts to move thats good right there.

Thanks Frank, thats what I was hoping some body would say "wipe it off and keep an eye on it" I've got spare bearings (old ones) for road side repairs tucked away with the spare prop. Just not looking forward to pulling those

B-buddies, they were kinda hard putting in.

Overfilling them has been a common problem.

This was from last fall. It is the brakes off a boat trailer. Both sides where packed full of grease and both sides had buddies on them. cid_2.jpg
