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 …

Hotrodz - thanks for the suggestion. I've sent him a pic and we'll chat on the phone tomorrow.

Sharkey & xshop - good suggestions as well. I could always settle for the fittings and hose you describe but have a bulkhead/union fitting in the middle so that if I have to service the trans/clutch - I can break the line in the middle and have it drain fluid in a less-messy fashion. (It won't be easy to get at the roll pin on the master cylinder when it's inside my 944 due to where I buried it in the frame rail.)

Thanks guys

Thank you xschop!

I started mocking up the gas pedal and linkage. I'm going with the 944's pedal on this one.

Already carved up the pedal linkage into the most basic aspect of it - shorter, less kinks, fewer moving parts.

And then I mocked up the Camaro front fuel hoses and decided they were nearly perfect as-is. So I punched a hole in the inner fender just ahead of the shock tower and routed them into and around the fender cavity.

Under the car where they route below the A pillar I'm going to have to mod them or shorten them - as they have a couple of extra bends that I don't need. Does anyone know if I can heat up the hose and re-form it?

I've tried reforming plastic fuel lines a few different ways. Never had much success. It always weakened the plastic. I've used heat gun, steam and flame. I found it was better to buy straight tubing and splice it as needed.

Your fuel tank looks good.

Hi guys - can someone remind me what bolts up to those areas on each side of the rear frame with the 3-bolt pattern? (Just above the jacking point tit or whatever it's really called.) I'm designing my lower gas tank mounts and I need to run a brace over to that area of the frame and want to try and dodge whatever goes on there.

That was where Porsche put the tie downs for shipping only. They were later removed at the delivery during predelivery checks.

Thanks for the help Hotrodz!

I've finished the fab of the gas tank mounting brackets.

Evap canister located high-ish up inside the fender well.

I've started on the fuel filler - the tank now has a stub pipe welded into it. I've also shaved off the stock 944 bracket for the filler neck & cover. I'll do something else once I have my new Camaro-based fill pipe & other hoses sorted out. I'll be running a total of 5 hoses through the cutout I made and will be blocking off the original 944 hole.

And I started staring at my battery. I will be putting it behind the passenger seat and I think I'll try running the cables down the inside of the frame/rocker box.

Almost done with my filler pipe. There are pipe sections from 3 different vehicles on it! The cap and first few inches are from my donor Camaro so that I comply with CARB/Evap system requirements. Then the rest of the parts are to get as small of bends as possible and try to keep the whole thing tucked along the side of the hatch area.

I was able to pressure test my modified gas tank and the fuel filler neck piping. I had several leaks but now they are all gone... fingers crossed that I found all of them. I'll do another test once I have the whole system plumbed.

In other news - There is a Ford 8.8 rear axle hanging under a Mustang at the local yard and it's calling my name. The diff is a 3.27 ratio limited slip. I believe the ratios on the WC T5 from the Camaro are: 3.53/2.75/2.19/1.41/1.00/0.72

My tires are about 26" diameter. The car will be about 2800-3200 lbs when done.

Do you guys think the 3.27 diff will play nice with the stock L36 (205 HP) and later on with a stockish L67? (250-300 HP crank)

Post  sharkey on Mon Feb 27, 2017 12:26 pm

the 3.27 will work with the wide ratios you have in the trans, although it is quite tall. for comparison, the v6 camaro came with a 3.23 with the manual trans, so your pretty close.

imo 3.42 would be better, 3.73 could be too tall because of how low 1st gear is in the trans. you might be able to find a 3.42 ratio 8.8 in an explorer, but im not sure if the width will work for you. then again, if you dont like the mustangs 3.27 you can always change the gearset later.

Starting in on the fuel and evap lines.
FWIW the caulking gun + tube flare clamp trick for pressing connectors into plastic fuel hose actually works well! A little Vaseline and some assistance shoving on the side to keep everything aligned were the only things I had to learn.

The 8.8 rear end is still hanging there in the wrecking yard, calling out my name. It's in a 94 Mustang which means it has the 28 spline axles and diff instead of the 31 spline. Perhaps this explains why nobody has yanked it out yet. For my car the 28 spline should be fine - I doubt I'll ever put more than about 300hp (to the crank).

Any advice for me gentlemen?

The battery tub and the mount for my main fuse/relay center are done.

And I found some nice clips for the fuel/brake lines under the car. They will tuck nicely into the 944's existing channel in the floor pan.
