      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 .

Trailer repair for 2 piece wheel rim

Recommended Posts

daveyred

I have a old boat trailer that has a 2 piece wheel hub. In between the 2 pieces of the hub is a metal shim for a lack of better word. It is a piece of metal tubing that helps the 2 pieces of the hub keep the proper distance from each other. That piece is bent. What is the possibility of finding that piece.

I have looked into converting the wheels into a 4 or 5 stud wheel but have not had luck finding the proper kit. I have also looked at just changing the axle but there seems to be a lot welding and changing the trailer format.

Thanks for your time. Dave

I would try wright tire in anoka. Talk to jason or steve. Those guys love that old stuff and will set you up. I know once you get wheel and tire combo back on trailer, you want to spin and adjust tire so there is no hopp. If their is hopp, loosen stud bolts and spin tire on hub shims. It may take a couple of tries, but your tires will wear out right away if you do not get centered on hub. You can not balance that kind of tire. I have tried and it does not work. Just got done beeting a track tire on my Bob cat. It took over 2 1/2 hours. You have to stretch track and bang rim on to studs. It sucked. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I might have gotten it fixed tonight. I took that piece and slide it over an aluimum (SP) baseball bat and tapped it down the shaft with a rubber mallet until it trued up. Once I got it rounded again I put a new tube in it and put it together. Seems to be Ok but will find out Sunday when I take her for a spin. So if anyone notices my white boat being towed behind a green toyota broke down on the side of the road spot and help a fello fisherman out.
