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 …

SBC oilpan conversion question.

Post  bigskybob on Mon Dec 14, 2009 11:08 pm

Hi all, I've been reading and watching for a short time, but it's time for my first question. But first the car, I recently purchased a sorry looking early 1985 944 racecar that was languishing in a local storage lot. It came completely gutted with a complete roll cage, but minus the front fenders and hood, I plan on using it for SCCA auto cross type racing. I'm building a 383 stroker with ProComp aluminum heads. I'm building my own adapter parts, but I was wondering if there is a measurement of the oilpan front section that needs to be cut down, from the top of the pan rail to the cut area?

Thanks Bob V.

Just remember if you are going to mod your own pan, be careful with the crank clearance. It's really tight with the stoker crank, I know from experience.... Shocked

The sketch obove is mine. As tha admin said, check the crank clearance-- especially the rod cap/bolt clearance. I made my first pan with just the crank and when i fitted the rods, they hit the pan. So the above dimensions may not work for a stroker.

he should have plenty of clearance if follow close as possible to the dim. i made mine with 3.5 on te side still have 1/2 inch or more of play between the pan and cross, and the 13 inch back is a bit far because i cut mine at 12 and still have 1 inch play to move forward to the cross

The cut at 13" allows the sump to be sectioned with a flat piece of steel.
Not really necessary, just easier.

If you're adding stroke, the windage tray may have to go completely.

Maybe this will help...

bigskybob, you PM's should start to work after you make 5 or more post. It's an anti-spam thing

Thanks for the offer Modenas, but I have the fab covered, I guess my concern was the relationship between the depth of the oilpan cut in relation to the angle on the Torque tube, is there anything I need to keep in mind with the torque tube.

Look into my photo gallery you will find what I used for an oil pan, and the modifications I used as well for the LT1 which should be similar to sbc your using cept the LT1 has a 1 piece seal not a 2 piece seal your more then likely using.
hope this helps.

is the only time you need to modify the oil pan when your using the stock 944 cross member ? i have been thinking of doing a swap for a year now . i have a sbc motor in a s10 pick up and a 86 944 with a motor thats no good . does the c5 bellhousing bolt up to a late 70's 350 block ?
