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 …

Well, that's certainly one way to get it! How much was the tranny? What year Audi 5000 do we need...

1980-82 Audi 5000 Diesel, 5 speed. 016 trans with one of the following codes: UF, MN, BMO, WV, UW, MO, MR, AAW, AAV, AAY, AAX, AMM, or AMN. These codes are from my research, please confirm for yourself!

I think I paid 125 or 150 for mine + about 75 for shipping.

Aco, Thought I better post this here or I'll never find that rennlist thread I posted in. This was the last piece to the puzzle. After doing the Late strut mod, welding the insert, and painting them Koni Yellow, I had to turn the inner diameter of the coilover sleeves I had because they had inner 52mm ridges (the Late strut housings are 54mm unpainted). With a coat of primer and a coat of paint they are 2.135 O.D.
This was my solution.....

More than the ring and pinion is different on the 083. (944S, 944turbo, 944S2)

2nd, 3rd and 4th gears are wider.

hey Robert,

i posted some transmission info for making better use of the 968 boxes that you asked me about... i'm not running a taller R&P, i'm running a taller 5th and 6th. hope anyone looking at 968 gears has the opportunity to read it...

I saw that novel...great detail...and helpful.

Before I post these for sale, here's the final product of this exercise.... Early replaceable inserts in Late struts with coilovers and 300 LB springs....

Myth-Busters

Post  xschop on Tue Dec 27, 2011 8:39 pm

Another Myth busted.....951 spindles are actually weaker than the 87-UP NA spindles..... The Radii are 13mm more on the 951 spindles and measuring the weakest point puts the 951 spindle ears at 34mm, whereas the NA spindles are 38mm across in the same location. All other dims are the exact same. Same ear caliper mounting offsets, same stub-shaft dimensions/bearings, same hubs, same spindle interface, same geometry.

After almost 25K miles, I finally broke something...The factory GM pressure plate gave up the ghost. I installed the Centerforce PP and a new Dodge disc, although the original disc is still in O.k. shape. All the 6K clutch drops had the springs a little loose LOL. Anyways after this long hiatus called tranny drop, exhaust drop, TT clocking and set-back B.S. I'm going to work on a 2-piece driveshaft and have decided to make the Torque tube detachable at the trans bell, just like the 928 does so it can be removed without having to remove the whole frigging rear drivetrain and torsion tube....what a pain. The great thing about the V8 swap is the 2-piece C5 BH that saved alot of headache and time. The C5 adapter still has to be moved back at least 1.5" to get the concentric TOB out so the PP splines can clear.....

I've always liked the 928 2-piece bellhousing and the 928 trans and torque tube would swap into the 944 with a less-extensive torsion carrier mod like the C5 drivetrain requires. When the Quicktime BH owners blow their clutch I would suggest pulling the motor to change it. It would actually require less work Shocked

I'm not even joking. I just don't see how the Quicktime would remove from the bottom as it's "adapter plate" is permanently welded to the Steel BH. No

Good thing I went with a new Spec clutch when everything was apart. In retrospect I probably should've gotten the two piece C5 bell housing instead. Oh well...

the two piece makes it easier but still a pain. not like removing driveshaft on the older 4 speed chevys and dropping the tranny out .i can change clutch out in my chevelle in an hour or two.a two piece driveshaft would be great on a 944.ive figured out its easier to drop engine versus pulling transaxle to gain acess to clutch .ive done it so many times i could probaly do it blind folded.sure would be nice if it was simplified with a two piece driveshaft.ecspecialy for the track cars.make the shaft where it could slide back from the front kind of like a pto on a farm tractor.make the tourqe tube with an acess panel or make it where it can l slide back to gain acess to shaft.a crafty machinist like you rob could probaly make somthing like that,

Two piece TT

Post  fliermike45 on Sat Jan 14, 2012 3:02 pm

Just paid a visit to Constantine to show him my car.

While I was there he demonstrated the 928 and 968 two piece torque tubes, I was surprised to find out that the 968 had a shorter TT. I am curious how Rob intends to implement a two piece 944 TT.

I also saw that he is also overhauling the TT's from four wheel drive Porsches.

Game Plan

Post  xschop on Mon Jan 16, 2012 8:39 pm

Here's what's crackin.....

The 948 is on the prowl again with a new Centerforce Pressure plate and New 11" Disc. I left the old Torque Tube in but gave it a little needed mod to make it easier to remove when I install my custom Torque tube later. You can almost remove the TT without dropping the torsion tube with this ear mod on the rear TT flange and us Hybriders with the C5 2-piece have it alot easier with clutch changes. I will run a bead of silicone across the 1/16" gap that is left later.....

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

I have an extra TT to dissect and did so right at the BH alloy interface so I can machine and weld an adapter on the long metal tube and the alloy flange. Funny how the casting has 4" square castings for bolt tapping capability. I thing the designers skipped this to save on parts, but make clutch jobs 2 days...bastids......Once the alloy housing is removable a clutch job on a 948 will take about 2-3 hrs on a lift and removing Torque Tube will take even less time as it will slip out the front....

I know I should know this already, but how do you see the full picture on this board?

I've been putting up with seeing just the left half of the pics since I found this site, but this mod I need to see in full!

I do it by right clicking on image and doing a 'copy'...then launching MS Paint & doing a 'paste'

But when I post an image I 'size' it smaller so it fits in the first place

No problem with these images, but I think it would help if there was also an angle from the rear (looking forward)

Some of my best tech drawings are in MS Paint Smile
I'm really liking this new Centerforce Pressure Plate. I was checking around and see that Skywalker used this one on his build. The Tech said it only required 0.375 to 0.400" throw on the tines for full disengagement so I installed the new 13/16" Wilwood master (Had 7/8") and it is easy and smooth as butter although I can definitely feel the instant bite on acceleration.
