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 …

General Motor Install Questions - SBC

Post  mred2nice on Tue Sep 29, 2015 6:33 pm

I have a couple questions as I am close to installing my early SBC motor in the 944. I have the adapter/bearing plate combo and the C5 2piece bellhousing. The adapter came with studs in the adapter plate.

1) Are you guys using the studs to attach to the torque tube? Or are there pros switching to bolts?
2) The plate on my torque tube is threaded. Are you just drilling that out a few sizes to get the studs/bolts to slide through?
3)What type of bolts are best for the bellhousing to motor considering clearances? Hex head?
4)Are you attaching the plate/belhousing to the tube then sliding the motor in with the clutch and everything on it already?
5)Is the a clutch alignment tool I can get to line up the disc?

Thanks for the help as this is my first swap,
Ed

Hi Ed,
Studs would likely make it a little easier/quicker on install. My only question would be, what grade are the studs? If i couldn't determine their grade I would swap out for a known quality stud or bolt, grade 8 / 10.9 or better.

I don't believe the 4 holes on the 944 TT are threaded, so no need to drill them out.

Hex head bolts for bellhousing to block

I installed the engine with the bellhousing already attached to the torque tube.

Hello...thanks for responding.

The studs that came with the plate are black like an allen head bolt.
