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 …

Do you guys keep the insulation on the firewall for the swap? Or do you remove it and replace with something else? Some of it has broke off from removal of the brake booster, etc. but before I remove all of it, I wanted to make sure I don't have to out it back together.

While I'm on the topic, same goes for the torque tube tunnel.

Thanks.

First off, F*ck Photobucket. I now have to go through and download all those pictures, and upload them to another photo sharing site. I will get to that soon enough, but until then, here is some update.

Move date is next week, so I needed the car rolling in order to get it to the "new" garage. I put together the front/rear suspension with little issues. Rear went together very nicely and I did well with indexing the torsion bars. No side was higher/lower than the other.

Front went together a little more difficult but still fairly simple. The most problematic situation was the bushings on the control arms. I ended up going with Delrin for the front and Poly for the rear. I chose Delrin up front since I was afraid that under hard braking, the poly bushing would shear since there was no protection between the two surfaces. It was more than suffice for the rear though.

I added a custom bracket to the struts to adapt the newer, stronger, spindles, and had to slightly modify the edges to line up the holes. I painted them a period correct Koni Yellow, to mate with the Koni inserts/bump stops and coil over kit. This was matched with 400# Hypercoil springs, ground control camber plates, and new hardware.

You can also see the new crossmember, tie rod ends and ball joints. This will at least get me over to the new house, before I start installing the brakes/clutch. Got a quick wash in there too Smile

Enjoy!
