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 bleeding my clutch... I've got a question

Post  spence on Thu Jul 15, 2010 7:40 pm

I just finished bleeding my clutch. I have a mcleod 1400 series throwout bearing and a centerforce pressure plate. The pedal feels a lot softer than I remember. Is that normal? One other thing, I can turn the torque tube shaft by hand and I can hear a slight dragging. Is that normal??

Thanks,
Spencer

OK, I may be a little out of the loop on your build, but is this a new clutch in a previously built car? Or are you referring to the feel in a different car?
You can hear a slight drag when you turn the shaft in the torque tube, Is that without the motor in place?

It's a new clutch in a LT1 and the motor and everything else is in place. I was talking about the feel of the old original Porsche clutch. The new setup feels a little soft; but it seems to work fine? I have read about people removing the assist spring. How much does that stiffen it up?
When I was done last night I got my girlfriend to step on the pedal and I turned the shaft from the small opening at the back area of the torque tube. When I turned the shaft it was very easy to turn, but you could hear a slight dragging. I'm not sure if that's normal?

The slight drag sound is probably the clutch disc. If your that far into it I would drive it and listen for that same sound, it might not be there.
Just remove the clutch assist spring. I hate they way they feel any way, also on my car , when I put it together the first time the assist spring would not let the clutch master disengage until I removed it.

Ya, you probably wouldn't hear it when the car is running. I think it will be fine. I'm not far from being able to drive it... Hopefully the clutch is OK when it's running. I just have to wire it up; I'm going to start the wiring this weekend. I've got the harness done and labeled. It should be pretty easy to get done. Oh, and I have to run all the hoses and vacuum lines ect. too.

How do I connect the porsche fuel lines to the chevy fuel rail? Just rubber lines and hose clamps?

Yes on the lines with clamps, If you don't have the original Chevrolet fittings that slip on the fuel rail you should be able to get replacements at most auto parts stores. Make sure on the fuel lines that you get fuel injection rated hoses.

Well it looks like at back at square one.... I went outside to today and I had no pressure at the clutch. I took everything apart to find the hydraulic bearing is leaking at the swivel connectors. I tried to tighten them and they wont go any tighter. I took the small screws right out and I can see why they're leaking. They have some type of sealant or epoxy on them that doesn't cover the whole screw; I'll post pictures later on.
I was reading about the mcleod hydraulic bearing and it's known to leak at the swivels which sucks. I'm not sure on how to fix this.
