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 pans and uprights

Post  kevin924kevin on Tue Dec 25, 2012 12:09 pm

Just wondering if we use these uprights and oil pans to allow everything to stay under the hood. or is there another reason, being that i am going to have a power bulge, hieght is not an issue. Just wondering. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

WE use them mainly for hood clearance. The other reason is the strength. If you are thinking of using the old style mounts be aware that the rubber type tend to come apart.

oil pans and uprights

Post  kevin924kevin on Wed Dec 26, 2012 8:44 am

Admin, i intend to use yours, but question,i have the steel cross member.(1978 924 ) My mounting points for my manual rack are closer together than that of the aluminum cross member, is this going to be an issue.Is the new oil pan tappered on both sides. I believe the alum cross member has about 9" between the mounting points where i have around 7" beteween mine. I will do a measure to confirm. Any thoughts or suggestions much appreciated.

Measurements

Post  kevin924kevin on Thu Dec 27, 2012 9:01 am

I took a close look and the steel cross member mounts for the rack are closer together. They are also farther away from where the control arm bolt holes on the steel than the aluminum. My concern is the pan, for the clearance issue as i see on this form.Can the pan be trimed more inwards to allow for proper clearance, or do i need taller mounts.Any input would be greatly appreciated. As i am in the process of my motor being shipped i need to solve this issue.

Even with the aluminum crossmember I had to do a bunch of trimming to get things to fit without contact. This with TPC's oil pan, uprights and headers. I didn't like removing as much material as I did but haven't noticed any issues. I plan to pull it and check for cracks this winter.

And yes, narrower mounting points for the rack will be trouble. My suggestion would be to get the Moroso pan and make your own modifications to suit your car.

My new style oil pan does not require any trimming of the cross member. It is built as close as possible to the pickup tube and windage tray. No it can not be moved or trimmed any further that what I make them now. Also the new headers do not require any cutting of anything major to make them fit either. I have worked hard to make sure there are no more trimming issues. I know people do not like to do that. The parts that have needed to be trimmed in the past were areas of no structural importants. As far as the up rights and pan fitting the 924 cross member, I have not gotten any feed back from the two sets that I have sold for installation into a 924. I will work with you on getting something to work. Is your car appart enough that you can send me the cross member? If so I can build a setup around it so we know it will work. I have a mock up motor and a car that I use ( 944 of course) for test fitting during the build and right before shipping as well.

oil pans and uprights

Post  kevin924kevin on Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:15 pm

Eric, i think i will wait for my motor, and check before i pull my cross member. I just ordered your new up rights.Once i can hang with the new mounts i will c what will have to happen. After doing a closer look, i think i will have the room. My steel member offers more space than the aluminum one. Now just need my motor to land and your mounts. Thank you will be in touch.

I have to grind some of the crossmember to make it fit. That, or space it even further.

Depending on the exact pan you have , you may have to trim/grind a little off the cross member.
