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 …

Oil pan issue

Post  Jim7 on Tue Nov 10, 2015 4:58 pm

When I began the project I was determined to dry sump the engine and after spending substantial coin I realize it's not feasible.  So it's back to a wet sump and I checked out the various possible OEM pans and found the truck L31 offered the best possibility.  I like the idea of the OEM as it has all the plumbing we want and it's a structural member of the engine too.  So I found a pan for dirt cheap and cleaned it up and bolted it on and found it's very close to a fit  It needs cutting in about 3/4" of an inch at the crossmember.  The pan itself is really deep and is about 1 1/2" lower than the crossmember lowest point.  So here's the questions.  Has anyone cut and welded an oil pan? How did it hold up?  Is the truck pan too low?

If you have a LS944 you have a cut and welded oil pan. They hold up fine, as long as the welds are quality.

The Easy Button is to buy an already modified oil pan from Texas Performance Concepts.

The easy button was broken a long time ago. Also i discovered that while they appear the same there are subtle difference between the 944 and 968s. Mine of course is the 968. Anyway i took the pan to the welder and he said I should go to the machinist to get the thing cut.  So I did that and fortunately I've done a fair bit of business with him and he looked at it and shook his head, as in PIA, but he said he'd do it and get it welded too. So the part of pan over the crossmember and rack will be chopped by .75" with a .125 aluminum plate welded in and the reservoir part of the pan will be sectioned by 1.75".  I just have to wait for him to get in the mood but he works magic with metal and is very good with the tools. He's an original Brit machinist, old guy like me. I can hardly wait. In the meantime I'll get the LS6 valley cover and an adapter to the pan for the AN10 oil cooler lines. I getting excited again.
