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 …

As far as the pickup (Moroso #24050) - I just don't feel right marking up a $95.00 pickup tube, when the stock LS pickup can be modified, or you can buy the pickup for the same price I can.
It's up to you guys...I'll provide the pickup if you want me to...

Just running it by ya first.

Hmmm. What about the dipstick? Looks like the 5.3L I have has a hole for the dipstick in the stock pan.

The Moroso 20140 has a hole through the baffle on both sides, neither of which were covered up when the mods were done. Check the middle picture, right beside the welded in plate...
Other (passenger) side is mirrored.

I do see them, but where does the dipstick go through the block? Here's what I have on the LM4:

Unless it's hiding behind the engine mount, I have no clue outside of where it looked like it was cast into the block but not drilled.

You're not gonna like hearing what I see...

The block does not appear to have a provision for the dipstick tube.
(Yet, anyway...)
It's attached to the oil pan.

Here is the factory boss (behind the motor mount), not yet drilled for a tube...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Can / should it be machined? Yep.
You'll have to pick up a tube (GM #12570787 / Dipstick GM #12570788)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the machine shop, and it would be a good idea to take a measurement first...

The Moroso 20140 distance from the center of the DS hole to the rearmost (flange) bolt-hole center is 9.0 inches.

Other than the weld spatter, you get the idea.
It shouldn't be extremely difficult to do yourself, actually.

Makin' It Easier...

Here's the latest Moroso 20140 modification...
2.5" X 10.375" overall.

Extending the modification to the end of the pan simplifies cutting, fab, and welding. Also, this modification simply looks better, and I will be contacting Moroso with a "what if" inquiry...

If Moroso adds a part number for the 944 / LS oil pan, and approves me as a dealer, well...
How easy would that be? (If the answer is not what I'm hoping for, I can still have the 20140 modified myself without any problem...)
