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 …

Anthro, were you able to bleed the brakes and the clutch easily with the location of the reservoir? The lines being a little high?

They bled fine. The plan was to hang the reservoir to have gravity assist if it wouldn't bleed properly.

Are you running without a maf? Is that a JAG's 90 elbow?

MAF

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Dec 06, 2011 2:11 pm

MAF is turned down but its there to the left of the word spectre.

You can see the connector between the left two camps.

Can't remember where elbow came from, but it reduces to fit the maf.

I have hydraulic fluid leaking from the reservoir line. Do you see how the fitting is slightly kinked? I got my braided line from Sloan.

What do I need to do to prevent this from happening again?

The picture looks like the fitting is cross threaded which would be the reason its leaking.

close, its the one with the roll pin holding it in. no threads there to cross. I took great care on assembling this part since it would mean major removal of either the motor or the trans. It looks like I will be pulling the trans and TT.

That is bad news. Is it the actual line that is leaking? Someone here was able to take those lines out with the motor and bellhousing in place. I think he used a crow foot style wrench that was modified.

Try to move the line around a little. Looks like it may be crammed against the fire wall. See if you can get it to straighten out and that should stop the leak. It is only a roll pin as stated before, It is usually loose type fitting.

There was an information sheet in the packaging that stated that if you have the F-body style slave you will need a shim using the stage 1 clutch kit. There must be a difference between the F-body and C5 slaves. I did need a shim after taking the measurements.

Arth, the TOB differences is a separate issue, but important and I posted every critical dimension known for AP-D951004. His pic shows the "AP" stamp on it and I cannot see the D951004 cast on it from that angle. It's perfectly fine to shim any TOB, but the input lines move in relation to the Bellhousing. Add the fact that you go from a smaller diameter factory input to the larger Russell input diameter, it looks like the fittings are hitting the BH.

The holes in my bell housing had to be enlarged to not pinch the lines.

Green Dot isnt replicable. Laughing



Are you sure the fluid isnt coming from the bleeder above it? Thats what it looks like to me. Make sure and see if its loose anyway before pulling the engine.
If it is tight, when installing the roll-pin fitting after removing the stock hose fitting, did you make sure that the stock o-ring from the old hose fitting was also removed from the hole after pulling the old hose out? I remember when I pulled the old hose out, to install the adapter fitting, that the old o-ring stayed in the hole and I had to fish it out with a pick. Check the old fitting and make sure the o-ring is there.

I have the another roll-pin adapter (russells) fitting here as well as an extra d951004 slave and when I insert the fitting into the hole, I cannot bend or cock or kink it like you have shown in the picture.... so maybe either the fitting is broken/bent, the roll pin isnt installed/fell out, or the slave hole is larger than what AP manufactured mine to be.

Update:

The line got kinked because of the 1/8in shim. The fitting was hitting the bell housing causing the kink. As Anthro mentioned that he enlarged the hole, I did not, I did not notice it until this late in the game. I wish Spec mentioned something about this. There is no other way to take out the fitting with a wrench since a roll pin is holding it in.

I removed the roll pin, replaced the gasket of the fitting and bled the clutch again. It still leaked. I pulled on the line and it separated from the nipple. FAWK. It took me longer to take the roll pin out again since it has been slightly mushroomed since I reused it.

I have a headache now. I need to order another fitting and see if it stops the leak. I hope it does.


Thanks for everybody's input.

Sorry to see the problems your are having, that is some gnarly rust on the TT, where do you live? Looks like what I used to deal with in Western NY.

No worries. It sucks and it makes me loose motivation, but Im chugging along.

Yes, there is a lot of surface rust on the TT. I'm in south NJ, the car spent half it's life in Northern NJ. The body has no rust whatsoever. As soon as im done, this car will be garaged. My garage is too small to work in, so the faster I get it done, the sooner it will be inside.

Seeing how you extracted it, you could mic the diameter of that pin and reinstall an extra long one and have it remain protruding out the TT adapter plate just like your pic. Are you able to get a dremel tool in the BH area to open the holes?

Im sure I can fit a dremmel, but I could also fit my right angle drill if I trim the drill bit.

But yes, I ordered a roll pin kit from Amazon.com and will install a longer one for easier extraction.
