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 …

V6,V8,and even a V12

Post  xschop on Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:06 am

I'm helping Dinsdale install a Toyota 1GZ-V12 to a Vette TT/6 speed. I took it further and developed the adapter to install any of the Toyota V6,V8, V12 to the 944/951 as well as the 928 TT/trans....

The A340 Toyota automatic transmission Bellhousing that bolts on-off. Only a V6 hasn't been swapped in yet, but I know it uses the same clutch as the 1uz V8.

I think the bolt pattern of the transmission to the bellhousing is the same as that to the automatic transmission of the volvo bellhousing I'm using, would be possible to see a drawing of your adaptor to see would be suitable for me?

It is as I just confirmed with Brandon from 1uz swap.
my adater puts the TT face .010" aft of the BH/trans face. What depth is Volvo BH you have and pilot bearing face to block face distance. I would like a 5 cyl Volvo engine in a 944 as a DD.

Looks like the Volvo 2.9L Inline 6 from an S90 or 960 will bolt right up as it also uses the A34x trans

The Volvo bellhousing from a 960 I6 is 140mm and the transmission side the spigot bearing in inline with the block face. With the 944 input shaft protruding 140mm this means need about 10mm of dish to offset the torque tube flange face into the bellhousing.

My current plan as I'm limited to using a lathe and pillar drill is to cut the flange off the 944 torque tube and weld on a new plate machined and drilled to match the the bellhousing and torque tube diameter but a bolt on solution would be much neater.

If your measurements are correct, then 135 to 140mm depth BH is ideal as the 944 TT shaft pilot bearing land starts right at 137mm....

Check out the tech drawing on pg. 2 of the 1uz thread. I've confirmed those dims on 4 different 944 torque tubes.Very Happy

Yea looking the drawing seems about what I was thinking just needs more dish, I have done solidworks models but I keep coming back to thinking the dish too much and be easier to just use a simple steel plate, also alloy too dear for me to mess up now I've stopped working in aerospace and cant get it free Embarassed

Maybe you misunderstood. For your setup, the way you described the BH depth and Pilot bearing face to crank face, it's just about perfect. You can always get a thicker pilot bearing just as has been done on the LS swap.

Just checked and the 2.9 Volvo engine uses the same pilot bearing as the 944 Very Happy

Do you mean just turn up a bronze bush to extend outt from the crank to reach the 944 input, would not be likely to fall out?

No, The factory pilot bearing is 11mm, there are 14mm and 16mm thick bearings off-the-shelf, but you won't need them if your BH is 140mm and the pilot bearing face is flush with block as you described.

The side of the pilot bearing closest the gearbox end is flush with the block but the engine side is below the block face

Exactly, and by 11mm as it is the same pilot bearing as the 944 (15x35x11). If the back side of your clutch disc allows, you could use a 15x35x14 pilot bearing and the shaft tip bearing land would be perfectly inserted.

Ah yes, I understand now, if where to use a adaptor as per your design that would work ok

Spent the evening doing a couple solidworks drawings, decided go with a design similar to yours rather than the steel idea. I've drawn it to remove the 12 degree of cant on the engine and to use a GM (Saab) concentric slave.
