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 …

Starter issues

Post  Lemming on Fri Nov 11, 2011 3:59 pm

Starter works just fine when cold. However, if I come off track, shut the car off and try to restart, nothing. Let it sit for 15 minutes and it starts right up. Anyone else with this problem?

I'm guessing that the heat from my header/y-pipe is the issue. I've read where other conversions suffer from this and one solution is the Ford remote solenoid. See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

However, if you look at the bottom of the website at the right-hand figure, this is essentially the same way that I have my car currently setup. This suggests to me that adding a remote solenoid will not fix my problem. Thoughts?

I had the same problem on an old Ford V8, 351 Cleavland in a Torino. It turned out to be the ground strap from the starter to the frame. It was a little lose and when hot would not make electrical contact. Maybe check all of your grounds are tight. Good luck.

Funny, I just went through and did all that before seeing your comment.

Just an update, the issue was not the starter but instead the alternator that was going bad.
