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 …

I got one off of Ebay. They come up every now and then on Rennlist. You are going to have to convert it to late offset. One method is found here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just a heads up to anyone converting to manual on a late car and using the thread-rod method that was mentioned in the link above:

I bought the 30" or 36" "stick" of M14 thread-rod and I think it was a quantity of 25? of the jam nuts from McMaster-Carr. Needless to say I have enough thread-rod and jam nuts (you need 4) to do several more early rack to late outer tierod conversions. I highly doubt I'll be doing more than one.

Not looking to make money off it, just help out and maybe break even.
PM me if any interest.

Or you can spend $35 or so plus shipping and have plenty of leftovers like me! Smile
Either way works.

You can just weld the rod into the power tie rod end then you won't need the other jam nut.

I've posted many times that Moog EV-378 inner tie rods are a bolt-on solution....

Id give them my PS rack as a core.....you will need a steering shaft, but I had to extend mine since for some reason, my 1/2 spacers changed the geometry of the shaft and needed to be extended. Therefor, you can use your existing one and extend it as you see fit.

Rockauto has them cheaper 284 + 28 core but they will charge shipping (probably both ways) whereas I believe AZ doesnt.

As for the steering shaft, both summit and jegs sell the correct u-joints (xschop) to do some radical header clearing mods to the shaft. Very Happy

Craig Hardy Wrote: This is a shot of the drivers side...notice the extra joint in the steering shaft to clear the exhaust manifold. RH modified the steering shaft for me as well as the motor mount that now has a mounting bracket to locate the steering shaft. The other option is to modify some Carb legal shorty headers to clear the shaft.
