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 …

R&P or Power

Post  endrnet on Wed Aug 19, 2009 9:38 pm

Noob question no doubt. Is this a manual or PS rack? I can't seem to find any pressure lines that go to a pump. Looks like the pressure lines go to the steering wheel knuckle, then right to the rack. I don't see where power would come from aside from turning the wheel.

Also, RE: Bumpsteer and such, since it appears to be bolted to the xmember, why would the geometry change if the xmember moved? It's going to go with it... although you'd have to move the rear a-arm mount down with it to keep it all level I think.

It's power, The big oily line right in front that crosses back from the drivers side to the passenger side is your high pressure line. It has a soft foam/rubber protection sleeve over it. If you look on the back of the rack where the steering shaft attaches you will see where the lines attach. There will be four bango type hose ends there, that is were all the power steering line attach.

So...

If I want to keep PS...

Re-seal the 944 rack, new lines, cleanup, etc. Are there any implications to this or can the GM PS pump be connected directly to the 944 PS rack?

I do know for the LT1 setup and PS pump the pump should be modified for the increased pressure for the 944 PS rack not sure on the LS1 setup , this was posted before on the old boards with a company to send the PS pump for the modification ( cost from what I remember was bout $90 to $100 for them to rebuild your old one and modify it(which is the route I am going) I don't have the link to the company but will look it up eventually.
I am also definately resealing my rack as well but I am not doing it myself from previous posts and talking with others from the old boards. The people that tried to rebuild these racks never succeeded. This one I am leaving to the experts and taking it into a rack and pinion place for the rebuild plus even though this may cost abit extra their will be a warranty with it as well.
Just my 2 cents on this.

I ran PS with my stock LT1 pump for a year or two....no problems with pressure. I now have a manual set-up, I prefer the feel and simplicity.

R&P

I want to go manual but I don't want to lose the power ratio. I am considering converting my rack to manual by removing the internal valve collar.

You can pull the pressure spring out add2 small washers under it and that will give an increase in pressure. This was posted on a LSxx forum but I lost the link when my drive went down. Search for Saginaw pump pressure increase.

The company is Turn One, I believe. I have one of their pumps, love it.

I went with the Turn one Option too, for the price it was nice and since we also used the Drd HydroBoost we found the pressure was the same requirement through out the system. Also we got a rebuilt PS rack from ALLZIM.com. I wanted to not have to go through this again after the motor was in, pay me now or PAIN me later.

I think I would like to try a manual rack. I havent driven a 944 with a manual rack but I do know that it does have a better ratio than a PS rack that has been made into a manual. From what I can tell reading post on various boards, the true manual rack is not bad at all. As I understand, while not as forgiving as PS, you dont have to be the terminator to maneuver a three point turn. Plus, how long will a rebuilt PS rack hold up before IT starts leaking?

Anyone here have direct experience / feedback from thier manual set up? I guess specifically, do you need to start weight lifting to be in shape for it?

I like I love you my manual rack. Stock it was fine, you add wide tires and if your not creeping forward you will need to be strong to turn it. Conversely though it has a very direct very good feel to it, and never leaks..... What a Face
