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 …

Tick remote bleeder

Tick remote bleeder

Post  jpkinerk on Tue Feb 23, 2016 8:54 pm

I'm looking to add a remote bleeder to hopefully rid my hyradulic system of air once and for good. My clutch is slipping from 4th-5th at high RPM (when on track) as the car warms up.

I did a search and saw there was some modifcation needed to the bell housing? Is this still the case if I got my TPC kit two years ago and I'm using a corvette 2-peice bell housing?

Also, what part number and fittings will I need? Any help is greatly appreciated and if you live near Cincinnati I'll buy you a beer!

I had to clearance the holes in the bell housing for the lines with a dremmel, nothing major.

air in your hydraulic system isnt going to cause the clutch to slip, it causes the exact opposite problem, it doesnt allow the clutch to release. if the clutch is slipping, its either worn out or not up to the task

Or his throw-out bearing is too close to the pressure plate. Did you measure before you installed everything?

So sounds like I'll still have to dremmel it a little bit, which is fine but can that be done with the engine in the car?

A more pressing issue however seems to be that I misdiagnosed the problem. What was happening was the following; prior to my track time the clutch performed fine, minus feeling a hair slow to come back up. Anyway, once on the track and after a few laps it woudl start to slip down the straight (4th gear, around 4,500 rpm) and when I'd go to shift the pedal would stay on the floor. My theory was that air was in the hydaulic line and when heat got to it and expanded it, problems presented themselves.

However, it sounds like this may not be the case? I'm running the TPC clutch disc with an LS6 pressure plate with roughly 317 hp at the wheels. Would that be enough to overcome a new clutch?

An issue with clutch master cylinder might cause the problem of no pedal return. The slipping clutch disk is probably something else. Spence's suggestion of checking the clearance on the slave is good. Or there could possibly be some other problem.

There's a spring on the back of the clutch pedal you can try adjusting and see if that helps. Some even completely remove it.

I think Spence has diagnosed it correctly. I took another look tonight and it appears the slave is too close to the pressure plate. I must admit I did not measure. Using the GM slave that comes in the kit, along with an LS6 pressure plate and TPC's disc, I assumed it was meant to all line up. I've learned a lot since then, so I know this was a poor assumption. In my defense, however, my kit came with the slave and bell housing adapter were already put together and snugged up so I thought it was ready to roll!

Anyway, looks like the clutch is coming out of the car and I'm thinking about doing a Spec Stage 2 now that I'm going to all the trouble. Real question is though, do I drop the trans or pull the engine? I also have to reseal my oil pan so I'm leaning toward the latter. Also, I'm guessing doing a clutch and adding a bleeder with the engine in car is going to be a real pain anyway.

Thanks for your help everyone.

Does anyone have the part number for the Tick bleeder for this setup?

I think it's this one, but they have a few, so check them out.

I just ordered this one from Summit because I was already ordering some other items. Looks to be similar.
