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 …

The hydroboost/mustang system really sticks out far from the fire wall. I had hoped that my stacker system would work for this setup, but I don't think it will.

Couple of options here https://944hybrids.forumotion.com/t2486-coil-relocation-and-spark-plug-wires Docwyte used a coil relocation bracket that clears the hydroboost reservoir, his thread may have pictures.

Yeah the stacks won't work. I'd be curious about what brand re locator doc is using.

Could you also tell me the part numbers on your remote knob for the prop valve.

That's a standard Tilton infinitely adjustable one. I initially used their 7 position one, which worked fine. I still have that one in my garage in fact. Want it?

I think that's the one I have. I can't figure out how it mounts to the valve. That's why I think I may have gotten the wrong part. This is what I got.

Are you sure that remote knob is meant for use with a valve? All of the remote adjusters I'm seeing on Tilton's site are for bias bars on a dual master pedal, not for a proportioning valve.

That could be the issue, but I thought they adapted up to either...

They sell one as an adjustable proportioning valve, that's what I have. What I have looks like what you have Eric...

You could move the coils forward and stack them on the frame rail.  Have to make custom length plug wires but the coil harness will reach if you remove the tape and re-route the wires.

I went with the ones doc has. I like that setup. Its nice and clean.  The wires are here, the mounts should be here in a day or two... Then I'm just waiting on my PS lines to come from California. I really wish I would have just had them made locally... UGH.

I just ordered all of my parts today, will be here tomorrow. I think I will end up stacking the coils since I already have the spacers to do it.

My hoses will be here at some point today, so it will be done soon. I am going to route my valve all the way to the interior now. get rid of the remote knob completely.

That's where mine is, mounted to the side of the center console, near the shifter on the passenger side.

I may go visit my car this Thursday, I'll take pics for you if I do.

Since September the car has basically lived at the shop, it's only been in my garage a few weeks.  Crying or Very sad

I feel your pain. I havent been to the track for two years because I keep doing things to get this thing "right"... It is a slippery slope.

I've only done 1 track day this year so far. If all goes well I'll be on track in August.

Well I was feeling quite a bit better today, so I got out there and got it done. I lowered the motor with 3/8 spacers and finished up the hydroboost lines. Tomorrow I will mount the coils, and I also have to put some helicoil in 3 of the holes for the camber plates. Not sure how they got stripped... I have a feeling it was the shop that put the motor in the last time. Anyway, after that I just have to wait until the rotors and calipers come to finish off the brakes... For now. Last thing for the brakes will be the ABS.

Hydroboost mounting plate - Page 6 Empty May have a problem...

Post  zeusrotty on Fri Jul 25, 2014 12:39 am

So quick question. I have the booster all hooked up, attached the pedal but I have no fluid in it. I was kinda looking to see if I've got any binding issues and when I depressed the brake pedal it went down, didn't seem to bind, but it stuck in the down position. Is this because I don't have any fluid in it? Or am I about to start over?

Can you pull it back up?
If you can: The only concern I would have is whether or not you have pushed the input rod too far and damaged the seals.
Was the MC in place and how far did you push the pedal down? My set-up, 2" is about the limit.

When test fitting mine, I did push the pedal in and it returned with no issues. If you have the HB output rod spring and/or the pedal spring attached, I would expect it to return.

It wasn't pushed in really far at all. I will check on the pedal spring but I imagine the internal return spring is in there. I'm also going to detach it from the pedal and manually try it by hand to see if it's an angle issue. I guess I should have checked this while it was on the vice huh? Lol

Live and learn I guess!
