      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 .

150 wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

I need to change the front wheel bearings on my 2002 F 150 two wheel drive. So far I've had to pry off the wheel with a crow bar - those aluminum wheels are just a great deal.

Now I am at the point where I'm trying to take the cup off to get at the cotter pin and the nut that holds the hub in place. The cup will turn but very hard. There is no standard lip on it to use to pry it loose, and it won't budge with a large pliers.

The Haynes Manual is of no help at all.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help

Tom

I use a chisel and a hammer, just angle the chisel on the cap outward and tap it off, turn and tap evenly. They make a fancy tool for it, but the chisel works so much better!

Eyes,

Thanks, that worked like a charm. Can I push my luck???

Now I have to try and get the bracket off that holds the caliper in place so I can do the inside bearing and seal. Two fairly large bolts haven't succombed to the BFH yet. Clues on that?

Got it. The impact wouldn't fit so it was a breaker bar +

The inside bearing was nearly dry and had rust on it. The race wasn't in that good of shape either.

Now I suppose I should consider doing the other side. Maybe next week.

Glad it didn't [PoorWordUsage] out in no-place Oklahoma during my 4,000 mile ride last month.

I owe you a case. You have a shop in Henderson? I'll stop and deliver when I'm next down that way.

Thanks again for you extremely prompt reply.

Tom
