      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 .

"96" Z-71 brake problem today

Recommended Posts

Today I had my buddy back the trailer into the lake like normal and when I had the boat loaded the truck wouldn't move forward So then he got out and I got in and put it in 4 DIG and still couldn't go in reverse or forward, so then put in 4 LOW and then I was able to drag the right rear tire up the ramp and then once I got out of the way I put it in reverse and then finally under a lot of torque she broke loose.

What could be causing this and whats the best remedy for it?

A little bit on saturday. I had to back the truck in a ways at shallow access to unload. But then drove it 60 miles back home that day and had no problems unloading the boat this morning and actually my P brake is disconnected for a couple years now kind of a wierd deal if you ask me and I am mechanically inclined, but have never witnessed a brake doing that before.

Quick ? for ya by the way How do ya quote just a portion of somebody's reply Not very computer inclined laugh

I'll have to think about the brakes over night but I would bet it had something to do with them being wet. It wouldn't hurt to give them or at least the side that was hung up, a good once over just to make sure everything is in its correct place!

The edited quote, simple click the quote bottom on the bottom of the post you want to quote. Highlight everything you want to delete and delete it. Do not delete anything that is in the "[" "]" or the "[" "]".

You didn't say if it was drum or disc rear, but being a 96 I assume its drum. Depending on what hardware was left in place or removed, it could be related to the E-brake being disconnected. Otherwise it sounds like it could be a brake lining delaminated from the shoe and jammed. In any case its time to pull the drum and do an inspection.

Another way to do a quote is to high lite what you want, copy, click the "switch to full reply screen" then click on the quotation marks, then paste it in between the quotaion marks.

It could be just from the water, but I would pull it apart and check it out as well!
