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 …

Assembly lubricant

Post  ffmedic on Sat Oct 24, 2009 5:01 pm

Ok call me a dumbass but I am posting this in case others don't know this:
Ok I thought I was smart as all get out bought some ARP assembly lubricant lubed up the cam lobes,cam retainer, and the pushrod tips with it.
So I had my brother come over and help me on setting the valve lash on the engine when I mentioned oh look what I did and put this arp lubricant on the pushrods, and that's when I found out I made a HUGE did I say HUGE mistake affraid No . Ok incase anyone else makes this mistake or is about to make this mistake arp assembly lubricant is only to be used on the threads and under the bolt heads of bolts being torqued not to be put on ANY parts. Use oil or the proper lubricant and make sure you read the instructions before you use any ( nope I didn't, I didn't have to it said right on the bottle ASSEMBLY LUBRICANT right ahhh no). I hope this saves someone else the frustration of tearing down the entire engine assembly like I had to in order to clean everything off, otherwise you just might tear up some parts way before their time is due on your brand new rebuilt engine or that nice new cam you just installed.

Basically you Loc-tite'ed your cam in.
Dude, I don't know if there is an emoticon for this one.
If it hasn't set up, you can clean it off with acetone. If it has set up, an SCBA respirator and thick Nitrile gloves with some methylene chloride might save your ass.

Though it is not ideal, having that lube on your bearings etc is not that bad. It is a moly based lube, like EP grease or engine assembly lube.
In addition to engine assembly lube; prime your engine before its first start.....remove plugs, pull the FP relay and crank the engine till you get full pressure on the OPG. cheers

No not like loctite , but bad enough though.
I had np pulling everything apart and cleaning everything off.
I do have to say though after that screw up thank gawd my brother came over and thank gawd I and he said something.
How did he know about that I screwed up , well guess it runs in the family line because he learned the hard way on this one he smoked a cam he installed on his mustang! affraid

Nitrile won't work with methylene chloride, they will fall apart. You need butyl rubber or polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) gloves.
