      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 .

Perhaps you can get Timken, probably at a fair bit more cost. You might have to go to an industrial supply store to get them.

I suppose pressing them in would be ideal, but the brass punch method is a common practice and probably what 90% of people do. As long as you don't slip and go around enough times to make sure it's evenly seated it works fine.

You can get Timken at most bearing shops. Minnesota Bearing in my area. I've haven't a difference though. I press mine in. Use a vise if you don't have a press. Find stock or socket that will fit or grind down an old race.

They make a race/seal driver tool kit. You should be able to find them just about anywhere that sells tools. Find the correct size cup for the race. Insert the handle. Three or four whacks with a hammer and the race is installed.

I usually use a socket sized to drive the race in.

I also use a correct sized socket and a 2x4 to tap on.

For about $20 you cab buy a race installing kit, fits several different sizes. Sometimes I will just take the old race and set it on top the new one and pound it in with that. Its not rocket science, just make sure it goes in straight, and is seated all the way down, and you dont scuff the surface.

I like to press mine in mainly because I have the press handy, but driving them works fine too. I usually cut the old race with a die grinder and use that to push with (or as a driver surface) and the cut allows it to come right out easily.

It works.

When I was in the AF, we used that method to fit some parts of jet engines. One part was soaked in a hot oil bath, one part was put in a freezer. They slid right together but you still had to work fast and get them started squarely.
