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 …

Specialty Fasteners

Post  Arthropraxis on Sat Apr 03, 2010 8:34 am

My kit arrived from 944V8s and I need to buy some bolts for the oil pan. When I saw the prices I thought they were a little high. If I get the right size and type of bolt wouldn't that do? Isn't a bolt a bolt? I get the sense that the price is elevated because they put a name on it or am I wrong?

Gotcha covered, Tim.

(15) M10 X 1.5 X 25 (Grade 8.8*) Bolts @ .69 ea.
(15) M10 Lock Washers @ .17 ea.

Total = $10.35 + 2.55 = $12.90 + 6% SC Sales Tax
Grand Total = $13.67

Post Office is already closed, ship Monday AM.
OR, for about $3, add washers to your old bolts and reuse them.
I'll send the new ones if you want - LMK.

Greg

EDIT: I got these @ the local Ace Hardware.

Thanks for the offer but no need to send them to me I was just asking if it was really needed to get "oil pan bolts" vs a bolt the same grade and size from the local hardware store. If you got them from Ace that answered my question. Now off to try and get the spindle bolts off of the struts so I can cut them down and put in my Koni inserts.

Application-specific fasteners are definitely overpriced (i.e. "oil pan bolts"), plus these (M10 X 1.5 X 25mm) are shorter than stock. I always search fasteners by diameter, thread pitch, class (grade), and length. Much cheaper, and you actually get what you need vs. what the application specifies.
