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 …

No problem. The stock master cylinder was bolted to what we call the cereal bowl which is just a mount that bolted to the firewall and gave the master cylinder a 12 degree angle with respect to the firewall. This allowed the brake pedal pushrod to push in-line with the master cylinder piston. Without the angle, the pushrod would enter the master cylinder at such an angle as to cause the piston to score the piston wall thus damaging the cylinder.

Heres a picture of the stock "Cereal Bowl" with a plate from RH bolted to it.

Heres a wedge I had made to bolt to the plate that replaced the cereal bowl.

Heres the setup out of the car to measure the stock angle.

Heres somebodys angled wedge in place.

Transmission

The transmission is on and the spare tire well is mostly removed.  I have yet to address the brake MS, but I will get to it.

Why did you put a spacer on the waterpump? U plan on using a truck crank pulley?

Just a heads up, i spent much effort trying to retain the truck accessory spacing and it looks like you plan on doing the same (spacers on the water pump, not changing the crank pulley, etc). If you get a thicker than stock radiator, like one of the many 3" versions that will fit, you're going to have difficulty fitting a fan(s) that will provide any significant air flow. 

I ended up changing the accessory spacing to the f-body spacing. Buys you ~3/4" inch and is definitely the easiest way around the problem.
