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).

Oil pan fittings for remote filter - install dry?

Post  chrenan on Sat Dec 31, 2016 9:10 am

On the TPC pan that has the remote filter mount, should I use any thread sealant on the tapered fittings that go into the pan or install dry? What's been the best approach to avoid leaks?

If they are NPT threads then use PTFE tape or the like, never install NPT dry.

Those are AN fittings on the oil lines. Yes, connect them dry and don't over-torque.

Coming out of the pan is AN, but what threads into the adapter on the pan is a tapered thread:

NPT, tapered, MUST have a lubricant/sealant applied before installation. It is especially important when the two materials are the same, Aluminum is more prone to galling.
Also, I would suggest that you consider using steel/stainless fittings, they will resist fatigue better than the Aluminum ones and the AN/JIC interface is more durable in the long-term.

That helps, thanks. I'll use some Loctite aviation thread sealant and look for steel fittings when I run the oil lines to the filter/cooler.
