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 …

Power Steering Pump connections

Post  Red944ls1 on Thu Jan 03, 2013 10:42 am

Hey guys -- take a look at my power steering pump - I have one connection that I think is the high pressure and the other is a return maybe...

I can probably find a fitting for the the one with threads but there is one without threads ( it has an oring where the stock reservoir would fit. How would I make a connection for the line to the BMW reservoir. From What I can tell I will have one going to the ACtuator for the hydroboost system and the other to the reservoir ( see picture attached - thanks to Pete)

That fitting area with the O ring is a press in tension fit setup. Normally it would have a tank bolted down on it. I'm not sure why you wouldn't use the factory tank, but If you are not using it, then you will have to have a custom fitting made and figure some way to secure it to the pump. As a last ditch effort you may be able to tap threads into that hole. I have never tried it but any thing is possible. Shocked

Umm -- thats crazy I wanted to change the reservoir as I was told that the stock one would be to small with the BMW system -- The BMW hydroboost is larger and will hold more fluid

What I think I will do with this is get a brass fitting and press it in with green locktite -- And put a regular return line hose on it

I tapped that input port using a bottom tap and added a an AN adapter. There's a pic of the completed pump hose setup here:

There was another solution to press a pipe fitting into the inlet of the pump.

I tried to to the press in fitting, but my Turn One pump has a larger input than my stock one, so nothing off the shelf fit. If you are going to tap this like I did, you will need to have a bottom tap, or make one like I did. I tapped what I could first, then I cut a few threads off the tap and tapped again to get further down. I kept repeating this until the tap almost reached the bottom of the port. The alternative is to buy an expensive (about 50 bucks) bottom tap. In my case the HF 3 piece pipe thread tap set worked great ($15), I cut down the 1/2NPT tap. Cutting the tap was easy with my 3.5" cut off wheel.

If you have a stock pump, you should be able to press the copper fitting in which Rich mentioned, which is quite a bit easier to do.
