HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Ah, O.K. the bearing itself in my pilot adapter is a way to cheat having to adjust the rear TT to tranny coupler, but you must inspect the TT shaft to pilot adapter insertion depth FIRST (hence the 2-piece C5 BH). IIRC there should be 2-3mm between the bearing I.D. and the step on the shaft. Mine was too far apart, so I stuck in the 15x35x14 bearing as opposed to the factory 944 15x35x11. The taller bearing will last longer and not walk out either.

So something like this would be ideal?

"""""why is it that the SBC/LT1 swaps with the C5 BH require a shorter (by 0.40") pilot bearing adapter?""""

Still a little confusing as the LS flywheel sticks out further than the LT Flywheel. Is this irrelevant to the Pilot bearing depth machining of the SBC/LT and LS cranks? (0.40" difference)

Nevermind I found it on Lstech. The LS pilot bearing to block relation is 0.400" shorter than the SBC/LT crank. Hey Rob, I saw on the old Website that the RH Kevlar clutch disc is so thin that the ARP bolts don't clear the rear clutch springs on that disc. Which FW bolts are you using and any issues?

I plan on running the ARP bolts. The clutch disk from Gripforce is basically the same as stock, just with the hub change. I don't see where it could be a problem. I have yet to do any test fitting, so I can't say for sure.

Sorry to wake up an old post, but have a little more info on the C5 auto bellhousing.

It doesn't look like the C5 auto bellhousing will work with an 11" clutch either. I'm using an autozone clutch/PP and JEGS flywheel with the LT engine. From the looks of this post if it wont work with the LT engine it has less of chance working with the LS engines.

Looks like I'm searching for a manual bellhousing and have an auto bellhousing for sale!

Rob, does the manual bellhousing clear the PP with your 12" set up?

Yup, I had the same problem with mine. I did end up selling my C5 auto AND C6 manual BHs on ebay to recoop some of my cost. Neither of the two will work (C5 like what happened with yours and C6 because it's an inch too long).

Jump on LS1tech.com and corvetteforums.com and post a WTB C5 manual bellhousing thread. I had a couple PM me and ended up with one for 130 shipped. I wish I would have done that to begin with. Embarassed

i had a simular issue with mine as well the 11 inch fly whell will work but must use 10.5 pressure plate and clutch.another option i havnt seen yet is posibly a bellhousing from a 88-95 gm truck as they are equiped for hydralic clutch and use a 11 or 12 inch clutch setup i just went ahead and used 10.5 pressure plate and clutch on mine and it works fine.im using a brass button style clutch disk which gets a really good grip.i had thought of using the truck style bellhousing but had already paid for the c5 and 10.5 setup and didnt want extra hasle of trying to get rid of what i already had i just got me a good clutch disk and went on.the truck set up might work i dont know for sure but maybe some one on here has tried it ive seen most of them use a quick time or lakewood bellhousing

Thanks for the tip. I registered on both forums but they both have forum rules in place to keep new members from posting a new thread in the classified sections. LS1Tech.com won't let you post until you've been there 6 months or got 50 posts!!! WTF! Any chance I could get someone to start a post and I could take it from there? I can post replies to a thread while being new just fine so if someone could even just open up a thread I could make the first reply with all the information in it.

C5 Bell housing

Post  map21 on Tue Mar 15, 2011 12:47 pm

Car-part.com I just got my C5 manual bell housing for 125 including shipping. There were maybe 10 -15 on there as of yesterday in the 100 -175 range. You have the whole country at your finger tips vs. just the LS1 forum.
