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 …

Upright Fitment

Post  Rich L. on Sun Dec 04, 2011 11:03 pm

Howdy Guys. I've got the oil pan on the engine and have been trimming a bit on the cross member for fitting the engine mount uprights. I do have a couple of questions:

First, does this look like enough clearance between the oil pan and the cross member? It's about 1/8" which sems awful tight but I doubt there's much movement in these new design TPC mounts.

Second, the pasenger side mount has a much bigger gap between the flanges than the upright actually needs. The driver side is much closer. Should I insert a couple of fender washers to occupy some of this space so the flanges aren't bent, and the welds stressed, when I tighten the bolt?

passenger side:

Wait till you install the engine. You'll need some wiggle room after the weight of the engine settles, then shim the uprights. You can also slot your x-member (forward-aft)

On the steering rack bosses, I would trim those another 1/8" only and don't cut into the rack mount threading whatever you do. The Poly mounts don't sag like the rubber ones, so there'll be no metal/metal contact.
