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 …

I haven't had much of time to go online lately but I have been working on the car. Here are some pictures of where I am now.

Since I haven't decided what color I am going with I decided to keep the engine compartment black and put the fuel lines and hydroboost back on

I measured to verify that the cam I plan to use will work with this conversion and found that there is sufficient lifter movement for about .700" lift. I also fitted my new stainless valves to the heads and found that I will not need any modifications to the spring seats or the top of the valve guides. I need to get the water passages (LT1) welded closed and the heads milled yet. I am also thinking about getting bosses welded to the valve cover flange so I can drill them to fit early valve covers without adapters.

Never thought about that. How did you manage to turn the thing on its side and not destroy it?

Still jealous of the rotisserie and garage! It's looking great, that's a huge effort under there. Smile

I bonded one flare and replaced the rubber bushings on the trailing arms. I needed to get more of the 3M Epoxy for the other flare. One wasn't enough for both like I thought.

Epoxy

Post  xschop on Tue Apr 27, 2010 7:18 pm

Hey V8, do you have the MFR Part# for the 3M Epoxy?
I am assuming it hardens to a sandable surface like Bondo?
Nice find on the rubber bushings too!

I used 3M 08115 panel adhesive. I think it is the same stuff Skywalker used on his fenders and 1/4 panels. I haven't tried to sand it yet but you can scratch it. It is pretty thick and fills all of the imperfections.

I still need to make fiberglass inner panels to close up the area between the flares and the wheel wells.

For the bushings I was going to buy the delrin ones but did another search for rubber and it turned up the ones on the Paragon Products site. I looked at them before but they just added the note about the 944.

I finally got back to the car today. I made one inner fender panel to close up the inside of the flare. I've been working on just about everything but. I did the timing belt,rollers, tensioner, water pump on my wife's AUDI A6 Bi-turbo; put 4 wheel discs with bigger front brakes on my mini van (now it stops); my Eibach lowering kit; big stabilizer bars, ball joints, tie rod ends, evaporator on my mini van; and rebuilt the engine in my lawn tractor, and probably more that I can't think of right now. It feels good to get back to the car.

The rear flares are GT Racing; the front bumper and hood scoop are from AIR. The body is a 1984 944 and the rear 1/4 panels are from an 87 924S; the rear bumper is an actual European 924 rear bumper. I have European driving lights and all of the factory light trim for them along with real 937 front bumper guards that I bought new from a European vendor.

Started working on the front fenders. I removed 3.5# of factory undercoat from each. The fenders weigh 10.5# each without the undercoat. (weighed on my calibrated scale) The drivers side was straightened some time in the past but not done well. It is pretty straight now and will only need a skim coat of bondo. The passenger side was bent at the bottom rear.

Found out something interesting. I showed my crankshaft to an old friend that is a small block fanatic from way back. He built funny car chassis back in the 60's was friends with Li'll John Buterra and has been building small blocks for almost 50 years. Anyway, he took one look at my crank and kind of freaked. He says that it is an early 67 302 crank. He couldn't believe I paid $125 for it and is is std/std unmodified and magnafluxed. He says that there are subtle differences in the counterweights between a 302 and 283 forged crank.

I haven't posted on my car for awhile. I am currently working on the shell getting it ready for primer. I brought the LT1 heads to get welded. I had to turn it sideways and move the whole rotisserie aside to make space for my wife's AUDI.

The past month I spent doing an R & R and rebuild of the transaxle from my wife's AUDI A6.It is a 5 spd. Tiptronic. It was a major project to get it out. It broke the C clutch drum--actually, broke the lip off that supports the snap ring that holds all of the steel and lined plate in. It's hard to believe that this trans can hold the 2.7 Bi-turbo engine in the car. It is also the same basic trans used in the 911, 968 and Boxters.

I also did outer tie rod ends, O2 sensors, 1 ball joint, outer CV boots, cam cover gaskets and re-sealed the water pump.

I'm sure that this work would have cost more than the car is worth to have it done at some shop.

Now it is finally finished and I have my garage back.

I haven't posted for awhile because my father passed away and my mom has been a mess.

Anyway, I have been progressing on my car. I came into some good deals on engine parts so I have changed directions a little. I now have a pair of Gen II ProComp 3002 heads. 2.02/1.66; 64cc (measured 65cc) angle plugs;Moroso stainless valves--these flow about the same as ported LT4 heads.

I have 302 11:1 Icon forged pistons; lightweight forged 4340 I beam full float rods; a used Moroso Vega oil pan and pickup; steel billet SFI flywheel.

I have re-done all of the accessory mounts. I bought one for the A/C compressor and I made one for the P/S pump.

I also de-burred and polished the crank and balanced the pistons and rods. Once I buy rings I can get the crank balanced.

To get the car running faster I have decided to use a carb to begin with. (too many parts to buy for the FI yet) I have a Holley double pumper on the shelf to use and an HEI.

I hope to be assembling the engine around July. Then I will concentrate on getting the body back on the ground and in primer.

I added some pictures to my album here

All condolences Pete. We are glad you're back and miss your posts and insight. What do you think it will weigh when it's all done and said?

My calculations come to about 2650 Lbs.

I am weighing every part I can. I should have a very accurate number for the motor when I get finished assembling it as well. There are so much conflicting information about this.

Well...last year sucked. My mom also passed away in June, my sister was diagnosed with terminal cancer and one of my close friends died unexpectedly after a long fight with cancer. Hopefully this year will be better.

Recently I have been building my engine. I posted pictures in my gallery but here are some:
