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 …

Power Rack Fitment

Post  Rich L. on Sat Jan 28, 2012 5:21 pm

Howdy All. I'm having trouble fitting my steering rack. The hard hydraulic lines that are part of the rack are interfering with the oil pan. The feed and return lines I can setup however I need. But these lines from one point on the rack to another I was hoping to leave alone. Do you guys that use a power rack cut and splice them to make clearance?

In this picture my red line shows roughly where the oil pan is:


Thanks for any thoughts.

What type of oil pan are you using?
I just pointed my camera in the vicinity of my oil pan/rack, check this:

Thanks for the pic Mike. Yes, clearly your pan provides more space. Mine is Admin's pan and I was under the impression it was intended to work with a power rack. Hmm...

Cut a piece of tube in half, cut and weld it into the oil pan to give you a clearance channel in the area of the rack plumbing.

Don't cut anything, you can bend those lines down and out of the way. I did this on my Moroso pan. Also I trim some of the steering rack alloy boss from that side of the X-member as well. I'm doing two X-members that way today.

Loosen that banjo bolt next to your blue glove and that makes the bending easy, then retighten.

Just tap them down with a rubber hammer. I've done it on every car I've built. They will move enough to clear the pan.
