      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 .

Plow pump seal?

Recommended Posts

I have a meyers plow on an old truck. it's in great shape, except when you raise up the plow, it slowly, actually not so slowly anymore, creeps down. Is this an easy fix for someone not knowledgeable in such things, or something that I'll just live with, since the plow truck isn't licensed or insured because it doesn't leave my farm. I did check the fluid and it's full and doesn't leak anywhere, so I'm assuming there is a seal somewhere that is letting fluid through therefore letting the plow slowly down.

thanks!! thought i'd try and get ahead of this before the snow flies, because by then it's time to get the ice gear out!!

If you checked the fluid and its full, it can't be leaking out a seal or the fluid would be down and you would need to add some. You may need to rebuild the pump.

If there is no visible leaking, i would take out the valve assemblys and clean them.

Actually, the fluid is supposed to be changed yearly in the plows...so if it is an older unit and the fluid hasn't been changed it probably is dirty.

Your probably getting leakage back thru the valve assemblies back into the resevoir. as long as your at it, you might as well get an O ring kit for the cyclinders and the valves.

I'm not familiar with meyers, but plenty of exp with Western and Boss.

There also is a pressure release valve in the assembly that could be getting worn also releasing the pressure...this might require a new one if cleaning does not help.

You should be able to down load a manual from their web site if you dont have one to see how the valves are set up and which one to check.
