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.

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 …

Tim, what is the part# ? When you build your firewall plate, just make sure the mustang angle plate/pushrod crosses the firewall plate at the exact location as the factory pushrod does. Just drawing the cereal bowl outline and copying it's hole is way off.

type in hydroboost in "search". Look at the top of this site under the "944hybrids.com" banner; you'll see search. Click on that and go to advanced search then type in hydroboost. Lots will come up

[quote="supes6"]Mike, this is the plate that came with my hydro boost - it's yours if you want it.  I'm using Eric's plate so have no

How do you take the bolts out of the stock plate? Do they just get pounded out?  Also, where the push rod comes out of the unit... How do I take that off? I am looking at using the one that came with my electric brake booster instead of the one on the car. Here are pics of what I am talking about.[img][/img]

The push rod ball is crimped in the cup on the end. I would consider reusing the original 944 clevis.

I cut the ring off the end threaded the shaft to fit the original brake push rod clevis.

So since I have the hydroboost plate that is already clocked at 12.4 degrees I can just bolt that up to my current firewall plate right? I have the same one Lemming got.

That is what I am planning on doing. However, as xchop pointed out, you need to make sure that it is well aligned with the brake push rod.

Getting this nut off of the back of this booster is proving to be a major pain. Anyone know what size bolt that is? I'm going to have to make a special purchase and buy a wrench just for that. The adjustable wrench I have just won't grip it.

Also, are you guys clocking these to the right at all? It's tight!

Is the rustang pushrod long enough to reach the 944 pedal? If so,
then a bonus mod would be to weld in an offset pin on the pedal that attaches directly to factory pushrod. Then offset the firewall plate mount holes away from head.

No it isn't. You definitely need an extension.

Also, what is the center to center mount hole dimension on the mustang master cylinder? Other MC's could be modded to fit.

It isnt really the master that is going to make it tight. It is the actual booster unit, if that is what you are implying.

No, I meant getting different size MCs to mount. I have a spare C5 Vette MC at the shop I could adapt.

What would be the reasoning for a different master? Reason I'm asking is because "while I'm in there"

Anything larger than the factory MC and preferably with M10 x 1.0 bubble flare ports would be ideal.

Rob,

I'll try to get you the dimensions tonight.  I've been planning on calling Wilwood to find out my options on MC's.

EDIT: 3.25"

I've made some progress. I've decided to mount the plate to the unit and then I will mount the attached unit and plate to the firewall all at once. It really seems like getting the bolts on the bottom close to the booster would be a nightmare with the motor in. I'm also not running spacers so it makes it all that much more difficult. Here's what I did.  I I also tapped the existing arm and used an extension. I did recess the plate Where the hex bolts are.

So I'm just going to stack the back two coils onto the front two coils to make this work. Anyone know where I can get two longer plug wires?

I bought a kit that you make your own lengths, nylon spacers for stacking came from McMaster.

I've run into my first glitch, I bought the rebuilt hydroboost and it does not come with the output pushrod, spacer, or spring. Looking for a source for those items.
