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 …

Combatting Firewall Flex

Post  skywalker01 on Sun Apr 08, 2012 5:14 pm

After upgrading to the dual master setup, I was having some major flexing going on with the brake mount and the firewall. I tried reinforcing the firewall with the thicker plating and the turnbuckle solutions, but I was still seeing flexing that was adversely affecting my braking. While over at Mike's (87-944S) house, a flash of technical inspiration struck. The following photos is what Mike and I came up with: a 10.75" piece of .5" round tubing welded to 2x 1/8" inch thick flats. Mounted between the brake mount and the drivers side frame, there is negligible flex and I don't get all of the vibration that I was getting from the strut tower. Definitiely a more comprehensive solution than the turnbuckle/heim joint (IMHO). So there you have it - my first technical contribution to the board. Your mileage may vary. Thanks to Mike for the Hawaiian Punch!!

Thanks, but the mount is an XSCHOP creation.
