      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 .

Repacking bearings

Recommended Posts

I have a 91 Spartan trailer that I need to repack the bearings on. It is a trailer that I would consider on the small end. I need to buy my bearings before I tear the wheels apart. I've been told with 90% certainty that I will need Inch & 16th by inch & 16th. Can anyone confirm this ? Thank you for any suggestions.

DO they need to be replaced or repacked?

If they are in good condition you just need to clean them and repack. You will just need to get new seals. Take one of the old seals with to our local parts store and they should be able to match one up.

I wont know if they need to be replaced or repacked until I open things up. My dilemma is I cant get at this until late in the evening. I want to buy the parts before hand & if I dont need them I will have a back up. I am hoping to find out if 1 1/16 is more than likely the size I need. Thank You.

There are about 3 common sizes. At a lot of places you can find they have a package of a full axle set of bearings with seals - usually in a blister pack. Try getting the 2 smaller sizes and don't open any until after you do your tear down. Then just open the set you need and return the unopened set and get your money back on it. If you can get them where you do business with regularly they shouldn't mind you doing this, just be fair to them and keep them sealed and clean so they can resell them.
