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 …

I took the design 1 step further and modded the March performance Pulley (6271) to accept a custom adapter puck that can be used for the TRUCK OR F-BODY offset....just simply bolt the puck to the front of the pulley for F-body accessories or to the inside for Truck offset Very Happy
I called March to make sure they would make these for Years to come, so it was the perfect choice at 7" diameter for the proper LS-944 PS pump conversion...

I also designed a jig so I can Cut adapter pucks and mod the March pulley without alot of set-up later...

I also Lightened the March pulley to match the Bracket design look. I am working on the idler pulley arms tonite and this project is C.L.O.S.E.D.

Idler arms done with step-out spuds for the inexpensive GM steel idler or the Billet flat faced-idlers that are all over Ebay... The Idler arm routes the Serpentine belt far away from the Driver's side frame rail and has another benefit... the surge tank line to the reservoir does not need to be re-routed. I will get a pic up soon Very Happy

Here's how to get the F-body ALTERNATOR offset by milling 0.75" off the bracket interface (unpainted bracket) as compared to the Truck offset (painted red).....

Idler pulley added

Post  xschop on Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:10 am

Takes care of the reservoir feed hose problem and frame rail/serp belt interference when the F-body bracket is used to set the alternator over another inch....
With the idler pulley added a 75.5" 6-groove serp belt fits the bill perfectly....

Easy line relocate

Post  xschop on Mon Apr 26, 2010 8:36 am

After getting a new Banjo bolt.....The main line flexes nicely over to the relocated 944 pump and holds it in a perfect location....I didn't even need a zip-tie......pure luck Smile

Hi everybody. The project is finally getting close to firing up and I was wondering if a 944 power steering pump bracket made it to market. I found this thread and recalled that Eric had done a lot of work developing a solution.

Sorry, the cost of materials and machine time make this kit too costly. I do have a spare bracket if you want to mod your own 7" pulley. I'll ship it for $115 US-48. If you have a Truck crank pulley all you would need to do is bolt a $35 F-body Alt bracket to it and call it a day.

With the billet March 6-rib pulley and this adapter puck you can use either the F-body or Truck Crank pulley, just swap the adapter puck around after you cut the 1.95" diameter into the Pulley.....I don't mind sharing my design with you guys...... Also forgot to mention I removed the idler pulley a long time ago as it's really not needed with the 7" billet pulley as it has plenty of belt grab.....

I took the time to transpose the dims so you guys can build your own.....I hope you paid attention in Geometry Class Laughing You could build one of these with a compass, large ruler, and Layout paper....

Great info, thanks for sharing. I don't know if it's on my end but one side of the page is clipped and I can only read part of the text.

I was told that if you do a right click on the photo and save to whatever file you want (on you computer) and then go back to that file it will show the entire photo. At least it works this way for me.

Update on the PS re-locate bracket. I had a local machinist build the parts based on the drawings and it all fits perfectly. I have encountered a problem with clearance to the coolant tank. The best i can tell the 944 tank sits about 2.5" further away from the frame rail then the 968. The 968 has fatter fenders and the front slopes down more steeply than the 944. Next project is to see if I can get the tank reworked or if needed fab one.

My solution is to relocate the tank to the passenger side. because it will be a mirror image i'm building it using the lost foam method. The first two layers are fibreglass then covered with carbon fibre. The various bungs, nipples, caps get cut out of the existing tank and bonded into the new one. I looked at the various aluminum tanks on the market and they are either two big or too small. I'l post a pic of the tank when it's complete.

Looks like we have another McGuyver on our hands. Eric says the F-body brackets are about extict. Even at $400 for the brackets and custom pulley, I don't believe the entire F-body set-up with Turn-1 pump and the custom lines needed is less expensive. I do know one thing after removing my power rack. This set-up is a breeze to remove the 944 PS pump and/or 944 rack Very Happy

I'm trying to have this adapter made. What are the bolt circle diameters for the pulley and pump attachment points?

Thanks,
Rich

Rich, just measure the March Pulley PCD and the 944 PS pump PCD. IIRC the center hole to the PS pump adapter puck is 19mm. Just measure your pump locating boss to confirm.
