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 …

Bellhousing cover

Post  87-944S on Sat Feb 26, 2011 12:51 pm

Does anyone have a part number or source for a cover for the two piece bellhousing? This is for behind the oil pan, I can see the flywheel. Thanks,

From what I have run into, it depends on what pan u are using. I have an RH pan and the stock cover wouldn't fit. I have to custom one out of a thin metal sheet.

Thanks 944-LT1, I have that part. I have the RH oil pan as well, I guess I'll make a template out of cardboard and cut a piece of sheet to fit as well. Getting closer to a road test. Very Happy

OH yeah, sorry. I think I know what youre talking about. Those two little black plastic dust shields; one per side? One of which the starter goes through.

Cant seem to find a part number for those. Embarassed

Are they necessary? I have seen others that don't run the covers.

I was crawling around under my car today doing a post drive look-over wondering about the same thing. I'm pretty sure that if you ever drove in wet weather you'd want something there for sure. I was planning on doing a sheet metal thingamajig (that word is actually recognized by spell check Very Happy ) because it'll be cheap and easy.

The only reason I ever thought I would need away to block those areas was to keep dirt and water from getting on the clutch assembly. I am looking at it from a street car point of view though.

right, but you still might get caught in the rain once in a while and clutches don't especially like water. I guess it wouldn't destroy anything immediately, but like you said it isn't good after a while.

I would imagine water in the clutch is the same as for the brake calipers. I never ran a shield for my LT conversion and never had a problem. Now dirt and road grime getting on the flywheel teeth and you have a starter breaking off the block. Ya know?

Going back under the car in a little while, will drag a sharpie and cardboard with me to make a template. I don't want crud getting in there, too much money invested in just the clutch alone! Rolling Eyes

Share the template with us?!?! Something we can print out and transfer to sheetmetal would be cool but I have no idea how to do that. Laughing Laughing

If it fits on my scanner I'll scan it to a file. I think it will.

It would be nice to have a template, after installing the heads I will put the bellhousing on and draw myself up one. The problem I see sharing the template is still the differencew in the oil pans. So the template would only be good for the same type of pan. Unless all the pans have the same rear specs.

Im thinking were all using a modified moroso 20140 (thats what RH was selling; or some variation of it). Cant think of any other pans that couldve been used?

Just got done playing, I didn't draw the template, fired the enigine up with the exhaust for the first time. It has been well over a year since it last ran with open headers. I am really pleased with the exhaust note with the Flowmaster 50 series SS muffler, and a Magnaflow exhaust tip. I tried it with and without the tip and it makes a difference. Needless to say, I was too excited about running the engine to crawl back under and do the template. Maybe later when it all cools down. When I looked at the bellhousing and oil pan, it didn't look like it will matter what oil pan you have, the sheet metal will be flush up against the bellhousing and clear the oil pan. I'll post what I come up with. I will post audio and video of the engine, as it sounds in my tiny garage, when I get a chance (camcorder batteries were dead). Nothing gets me motivated like the sound of a V8! I need to get it out of the garage!! Very Happy

Yeah, I dont know of any stock pans that will work for these conversions. Beyond that, I think most all 944 LS conversions use the same type of pan.

I havent tried to put the stock LS shields on my engine yet, though I do have them, but you say they wont work???
