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 …

944 lt1 conversion newbie

Post  shwinny on Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:58 am

I am in the middle of tring to sell my 944 engine to get me a lt1 motor and harness. Is it safe to say if i do get the lt1 motor, and buy a c5 1 piece belhousing and slave cylinder and master cylinder and clutch kit off ebay that would be a good start for the swap. This is going to be a project for the winter and i love the support you guys have on here.
I am a swiss cnc machinist and i am totally capable of machining the adapter, but i couldnt get a the whole detailed drawing or print on the other threads. what about the motor mounts where would be a safe place to get motor mounts for the lt1. I have a 1984 944 N/A and i dont want to deal with the extra expense maintaining that redicioulas expensive 2.5 engine. I really want to the swap rite the first time.

Link at the top of the page for Texas Performance Concepts for the uprights. The link for the wiki at the top of the page has the dimensions for the adapter. It is under technical, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click print version.

I have still yet to see a complete drawing of the adapter. My Hurco CNC has 14 steps not including the 2 jigs I machined to hold the plate after various milling steps. Just get whatever concentric TO bearing to translate the mounting dims. The 12.25mm off-center shaft concentric and 178mm spreadwidths on the 12mm Dowels are critical to each other and the 5 bolt-down holes.

Sounds good. I have a 3 axis prototrak at work and some 2021 and 6061 aluminum .75 slabs in the prototype area i will be using. I also have a titanium 6al4v .75 slap also which i might use not sure. How much should i ask for my 944 engine with everything that i dont need. I was asking 750$. Thanks guys i cant wait to get rid of that silly 4cyl.

Also you can step down the TT Insertion depth by a couple thousandths or get out some emory cloth to that damn rusty TT Razz

0.750" billet plate will not work because of the TT insertion locator puck on the drawing, unless you are going to machine dowels for the TT insertion area

My hat is off to who ever made up the prints and diagrams for the plate etc. I can appretiate all the cad work that went into it. I just want to say thank you and keep up with the good work guys. I just won a plate off 6061 1in thick 10in x 9.25in for 35$ on ebay. Thats a 160$ piece off stock from msc direct. Jack pot. Might i ask in one of the pics i saw in another thread there is a couple of features thats not on the drawring. It looks like a radius pocket and some relife grooves around the bolt hole cirlce it looks like. Not sure?

A more complete drawing is in the latest version of the Manual, but I'll post the page later this evening. I had 7 plates machined from it...and yes, they were bolted up in my '86T.

EDIT: From my research, Mike Gokey made the first...then RH. xschop modified the TT insertion feature, and I was the first to post the drawing on PHB. That got xs and myself "deleted" from PHB, LMAO. Now it's all over the place, non-patented...SMS was NOT used in the design of the "944 C5" plate, btw.

It was well worth getting booted from "Gestapoville, Las Renegade", eh Rob?
I think so, anyway.
