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 …

oil line recommendation.

Post  dallas on Thu Aug 13, 2009 8:22 pm

Any recommendations on oil lines? Our lines come pretty close to the headers. Anyone not have any problems? What mfg are your lines? The ones I've seen are only rated for 250f. The headers might get them hotter than that.(sitting in traffic) Thanks in adv. Alex

Use steel braided lines with aluminum fittings, and just slip a protective heat sleeve over the lines as you assemble them. Nobody makes a pre made set of lines. Every car is built a little different.

Steel braided lines come in a variety around here. I stopped at a shop today and they had this steel braided hose you could see light through. It had a clear nylon type tube running down the inside. I didn't trust it. Seems I just ran across This stuff by xrp called hs 79 Its rated at -40 to 400 degrees Gonna check it out. I realize I have to make my own. I'd rather it that way. I like earls fittings ,they seem like they would hold pretty good. I don't trust push on. Had one fail in my boat. Mobil 1 all over the bilge, nasty stuff to clean up.

Make a trip to a hydraulic hose shop. They have hoses for every application that they can cut to length, and put "real" crimped on ends.

Just tell them what you're (we're) doing, and they can point you in the right direction as far as to what type of hose you need.

Also, with oil lines running close to headers. The oil running through the hose keeps the hose cool, so no need to worry about damage to the hose. The oil lines on the turbo's of big diesel trucks are about the same size as the filter hoses on an LS1, and they run from the hot side of the turbo, along the exhaust manifold, 1/2 away at 1200*, to the block. No problems....

Thanks guys, getting close to finishing up. Can't wait to hear this puppy run. I didn't think about the oil keeping the lines cool. But your right. We use steam to keep a sootblower cool in our boilers at work. A little cooler than the 2500 degree fire.
