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 …

How-to: Fix a worn out shifter pin

Post  Porch on Sat Nov 20, 2010 7:03 pm

I had the infamous football-shaped shifter peg and i tackled that this weekend. I checked around on here and i've seen the bolt fix, the copper tubing fix, and the plastic 924 bushing fix.
I liked the 924 bushing fix the best (some people said the bolt wore out their shift rod), but i don't have a Porsche dealership anywhere around, so i ended up doing it a slightly different way and i thought i'd share.

Found this guy at Autozone (note part number) for $10:

Cut the old football off, drill a hole (i forget which size, just use a mic on the smooth part), blah blah blah:

Unbolt the shift rod back at the transmission. Use a pair of vice grips to hold it steady while you drill the hole out to 31/64" on both sides. You don't have to drill all the way through, just about .320" in so that the bushing will seat all the way.

Ta-da!

Press the pin into the hole you drilled in the shifter, then weld up the back side. Measure the pin length needed, cut a groove for a circlip, and cut the excess off. Install and you're done:

It has a smooth feel and no slop! Extra heavy duty, too (if it can hold a door up, i think it can handle a shifter....).

Very Happy

Another Forsche mod, nice. Moly grease the pin and inserts, they'll last forever.

I used a 10mm bolt, nut and a pair of 10mm thrust washers to fix mine.

I cut the worn pin off, ground the face smooth, then drilled and tapped it for the 10mm bolt. Used the nut and loctite to lock the bolt in place (I would use a slimmer jam nut next time) at the appropriate amount of preload on the thrust bearings.

Here are the thrust bearings I used:
