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 …

If I go with the hydroboost II which i believe is part # 52-7200, can I still go with the 2000 mustang master cylinder or which is ideal?

Any chance the writeup on this a couple people mentioned doing has been done or will be done soon?

I'm starting to get ready to consider possibly thinking about getting around to upgrading my un-boosted brakes...

Compatible with the 944 master. 5/8" tubing works with the metric lines. Remote accumulator. Even the PS pressures and flow are near identical to the 944 power steering system (if you're using it).

83-88 BMW 533 I (E28); 635 CSI (E24); 735 IL (E32) There may be others. Mine came from a 633CSI.

How is the rear brake bias with the BMW unit? Is it any different than the Ford unit? This is one thing i have been researching alot of, trying to decide between hydroboost or an electric booster for use on a car that will see a fair amount of track time.

The brake bias isn't effected because you re-use your original master cylinder.

That sounds like a good option. Wish I'd looked into it. I have the does unit and it works well, but brake bias was affected on the track. Too much to the rear so I installed a tilton adjustable brake bias valve. All is well now.

Mounting remote brake fluid reservoir.

Post  zeusrotty on Mon Mar 16, 2015 11:17 pm

Quick question. I am trying to install my strut tower brace, and I needed to install a remote reservoir because the ford hydroboost reservoir in it's stock location interferes. The problem is, now I don't know where to mount a remote reservoir. So I guess my question is, and I think I already know the answer... Does the remote reservoir have to be mounted higher than the master cylinder? I'd post pics but the site isn't letting me paste. Ugh.

I was able to fit the KLA strut tower brace by using a roughly 1/2" aluminum spacer in between the strut tower bracket and the actual rod (brace). This pushes the brace farther forward (away from the stock Ford reservoir). You can achieve the same thing with washers.

If you opt for remote reservoirs, yes they have to be higher than the master cylinder.

Spacers look like they will work, as long as the bar clears the hood. Lol

I went with remote reservoirs; they are a pain to bleed but the work well, I got them mounted well above the MC.

These are generic motorcycle reservoirs and fittings from Ebay.

So it all clears the motor and the master, but Ill have to cut out another cross section of the hood to get it to work. Otherwise I'm back to remote reservoirs. I don't have room to put the reservoirs where you did. I have a bunch of coil packs there. I'm running out of room!
