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).

power steering pump choices

Post  speedsterman on Sat Dec 29, 2012 7:44 pm

Hey folks,
I wanted to hear what everyone is using for power steering pump options. I was thinking of using a Turn One pump. Anybody having good luck with this option. Was thinking of fabricating a conversion jack-shaft for the 944 pump, but the Turn One would be a lot simpler .

I contacted turn one about modifying my GTO power steering pump to match the Porsche power steering rack and hydroboost brakes. They said they could do it for $75.

What is hydro boost? Does it boost the power steering pressure?

Simple picture to better understand the PS pump, Hydroboost, and PS Box set up.

I run the Turn one with Ford HYdroboost and PS. Really like the Hydroboost.

Anybody use any GM units. I see some people using some off of diesel GM trucks. They are putting them on old 4X4's, (Broncos, Jeeps)

GM Booster

Here's a pic of a 70s era GM booster, looks pretty compact. I don't know what else is required for this unit.

I've got the Ford Mustang unit with a Turn 1 pump. It works well, but if I had to do it again I'd use the BMW system as it lets you retain the Porsche master cylinder and your brake bias doesn't get screwed up.

No, but I'm going to. I'll post up how it goes when I get to it.

You wouldn't happen to have any more of your HB mounting kits, would you, Xschop?

Rob , we tride the Porsche master cylinder but it was to much trouble. You will need a mounting plate between the two and a custom push rod. The mustang master has metric threads and works well for most applications.

Not to hijack the thread but...

Admin, have you (TPC), or anyone else for that matter, considered offering power steering lines and hydroboost lines for use with the mustang hydroboost and turn one powersteering pump?

TPC has done enough of these now that these should reproducable. I would rather buy these premade than have to trial and error...

What do you think?
