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 …

Did you received the AC parts ?

If so, would you post some information about what's included and how it will be installed ?

Thanks

I went ahead and ordered the A/C parts from TPC. I got the compressor, brackets, belt and dryer. I will use the condenser I have.

I need to find somebody who can weld these lines.

After that I need to find a AC shop who can make the lines.

These are the parts I got:

Just in time for cold weather, I finished the A/C.

I ended up making my own lines. Now the car is complete to use for any weather. There are still some cosmetic little things to do, it never ends of course. LOL.

Here are some pictures:

A/C Parts used for Swap Questions

Post  Porsche951toLS3 on Thu Nov 08, 2018 10:24 pm

I am currently installing the same A/C items you have........all from TPC.  Thank you for the pictures.
Can you take an overall picture of your hose routing? I am trying to understand where you put your dryer. The area does not look familiar. Is that on the passenger side with an after market washer tank?

I have an 86 944 Turbo which came with two switches at the dryer.  The first has been identified as in your pictures as the high/low pressure switch.   The second was a switch that was screwed onto a schrader valve at the dryer originally and "I THINK" it was used to turn the fans on when the A/C had pressure.  Can you confirm this or help me understand what that switch is for?  

I am trying to understand how to get my A/C compressor wire from the car to turn on.  Do I only need to connect the high/low switch for that to happen and press the A/C switch in the car?  Also, I think I have to have the engine running to check to compressor power wire?

Any and all help is appreciated.  I am mounting up the compressor in the next few days so I can measure for my hoses and off to the a/c shop for Freon.  Again, if you see anything that I am doing wrong or forgetting, I am thankful for the info.

The dryer is located at the right side below the headlight. I don't have the normal headlights.

The high pressure line in this picture is routed to the dryer.

My car had only one pressure switch, which was located in the line from the dryer. I installed a new switch direct in the port of the dryer. The power to the compressor clutch is switched by the low pressure switch I installed in the dryer.

I reduced the size of the pictures in this post, it looks like they are cut of at previous post.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

I got my TPC compressor and mount connected up. I ended up with ALOT more room swapping out the TPC engine mounts and pulling out the melted RH mounts. I am now going to attach a belt, but this does not line up with the inner belt line. I am assuming it uses the outside belt. Would you be kind enough to post a picture of your belt routing and the belt size you used? I am almost done and appreciate your help.

I used the small belt, which came with the TPC compressor, I had to remove the main belt, since it goes on the inside pully. The compressor has a wider pully and the belt just uses part of the width of the pully. All lined up OK.

Here is the picture.

I have a call into Kent since mine is about 1.25" forward of where it needs to be.  My engine is an LS3 6.2 liter and I don't know if all of this lines up differently or if he has a different bracket for this engine.
Here is a picture of mine and how it lines up.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I called Kent Marr at TPC who went out of his way to figure out what I needed to make this work.  My LS3 6.2 engine is setup like a CTSV or Corvette spacing which means I cannot use the same bracket and compressor (which I had purchased) in this post.  Kent had me get the following bracket to fit my application.  The previous pictures show the problem I had.  I purchased the following from Amazon to fit my engine.  This might be helpful to those who are trying to figure out what to purchase.  I will update all of this after it all comes in and I get it installed.  I purchased a bracket, a/c compressor and compressor manifold.  
1.  Dirty Dingo LS Passenger Side Low Mount A/C Bracket SD7B10 (works for all 3 spacing) 142.99
2.  Dirty Dingo Sanden SD7B10 Mini A/C Compressor Satin Finish 179.99
3.  Dirty Dingo Sanden SD7B10 Billet A/C Compressor Fitting   (Manifold) 48.99

This is what it looks like installed without the hoses:  I hope this is helping others.
