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 just finished repairing and modifying my wiring harness.

I replaced many terminals; removed everything I didn't need; re-configured the DME circuit to function correctly cut off the fuel pump if the motor dies; set up the cooling fans to be staged; added wires for my remote condenser fans; re-configured the charging circuit to eliminate the typical voltage drop problems in the early car and probably more. And so I can remember what I did, I modified a set of factory diagrams to show what I did.

I took apart my gauges, cleaned, and made new lenses out of scratch resistant and UV protected polycarbonate.

I also finished painting the brackets and then put the accessories on the front of my engine.

I finished repairing my dash. It came out pretty nice considering the condition it was in. It had two cracks completely through and was warpped.

I used fiberglass on the back side and clamped it back into shape, filled the cracks with structural adhesive and bonded on an ABS dash cap. I filled the edges and painted it with interior paint.

Nice work...I'm betting that dash cap will last a VERY long time too.

Finished my headers today. Now I need to get them ceramic coated. These are 1 3/4 tube and 3 1/2 collectors with 3/8 flanges.

Those look great, the whole project is sweet. Where did you get the polycarbonate for the gauges?

I have progressed somewhat lately. I found enough money to get the fuel injection on the car so no carb. I bought a FAST EZ-EFI Retrofit systrem and have the manifold pretty much done. I was also able to make up an accelerator cable using Camaro and Porsche parts.

I have the body mostly assembled to start bodywork.

I also gut lucky and found a pair of very nice early 923 Euro front turn signal lenses that are correct for a GT/GTS.

I got the headers ceramic coated and on the car.

I finished installing the fuel filler and all of the hoses. I needed a new rubber boot for the body to filler neck and was able to get one from Germany through Pelican Parts. I need ign. wires, oil cooler lines and install the body wiring harness and I can fire it up.

LT1 intake manifold on pre 1986 heads, that looks quite nice. I guess that's only possible because it's a setup from FAST EZ-EFI.

It runs..... Started it this afternoon. The sound quality isn't very good as I took this with my GE digital camera. It's probably time to get a real digital video recorder. In person with open headers it sounds like a pro-stock. This is the first time this car has had a running engine in almost 15 years.

I've accomplished a bit lately.

It is on the ground for the first time. I found that i will need to adjust the rear height.
