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 …

Engine Installation Question

Post  mred2nice on Tue Jul 12, 2016 9:25 pm


Hey There Everyone

I have all the parts to install my SBC...spacerplate, flywheel, clutch, 2piece bell-housing, adapter/bearing setup.

Is it best to attach everything to the motor first before putting it in? Or do you all attach the bellhousing/adapter to the torquetube?

Thanks,
Ed

With the LS1 we have to do a test fit minus the clutch and pressure plate to check the torque tube shaft insertion into the bearing in the crank, then all the stuff gets installed. I would say its easier to install all that plus torque your bolts standing up than under the car.

Are you sure you need that spacer? Just make sure (measure) you actually need it before you get everything installed.

Well, I am not sure. I was told that I needed it with the early SBC. I liked the idea as it serves as a block protector. I guess it would be best to maybe nust trial fit motor,spacer,bellhousing and adapter first to check. Do you put everything on the motor then put it in only having to attach the 4 torque tube bolts?

Measure everything before you install it!

Then when you're ready to install, have the bell housing attached to the torque tube, then put the motor in with the flywheel and clutch already attached.

Oh, and do what was mentioned earlier, and check the torque tube insertion depth without the flywheel and clutch attached
