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 …

Only 2 motor mounts?

Post  backpack09 on Fri Sep 07, 2012 9:57 am

Am I missing something? The stock and v8 kits only have 2 motor mounts? That seems like an awefully precarious way of balancing the engine.

What am I missing? Does the torque tube carry some or the load? Does the clutch bell housing mount to the body?

I have not pulled my motor yet, but I am a little concerned about balancing my swap on a couple of stilts...

There's a 3rd mount that balances the whole drivetrain. I have an upgrade for that one too lol.

I have been reading... A-LOT... Looks like you make a whole pile of shiney bits for these cars and this swap.

Do you have a list (sticky would be awesome) of all the pieces you make for us crazy converts?


A lot of it will not apply to my 4cyl swap, but these mounts and your control arms are very interesting.

I have a few of the 2-piece adjustable LATE poly trans mounts available....

If you install the engine with the TT and trans hanging on the old trans mount it will sag it if you have the front end on jack-stands for a long period of time.

Get TPC's engine mounts, they are polyurethane mounted and quality units that allow for the GM AC compressor as well....
