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 …

Would a new Porsche MC have enough throw for the C5 slave? You have me worried, I feel a clicking in mine intermittently.

When they're new the stock ones are pretty marginal, but they'll work. I believe stock is 3/4", mine is a 7/8".

Once they start to wear, the stock ones won't cut it.

Wilwood clutch master died WAY too soon! - Page 3 Empty Clutch MC

Post  fliermike45 on Thu Jun 21, 2012 6:26 am

FYI, I'm using my original stock MC with the C5 HTOB without any problems....yet.
But then I only have a stock clutch plate set up, no uprated stuff.

Lots of details here:

FYI, this moves the driving position 4" rearward. Only worked with my cage because I'm 5'8". My 6' buddy cannot drive the car.

Yep, I added a quick release and 1" spacer to the steering column, moved it back about 4" total. I tried just adjusting the shifter but 5th gear was still a reach. I'm in the process of swapping the tranny and rebuilding the whole shift mechanism front to rear. This includes an extended shift lever bent rearward to reduce the reach. I'll post pics when it's all done.

This will also depend on how your cage was built. I'm the same height as Rich, but my cage is to far forward for this mod.

Wilwood clutch master died WAY too soon! - Page 3 Empty Clutch MC Mount

Post  Dan J on Mon Nov 18, 2013 5:10 pm

Hi guys,

I've started working on my car again, and one winter project is dealing with the clutch MC mount.  Based on my experience burning through a couple aluminum Wilwood MC's, and seeing what others have come up with, I had a couple of mounts fabricated by a local machine shop.  This is designed so the Willwood MC can be mounted straight up, vs on it's side, and it incorporates the angle.  I use a firewall mounting plate as well.  

I will report back on how this works once the car is finished. I pulled the motor in order to have room to do this project, and 'while you're in there' projects mushroomed, including a TT rebuild, plumbing new oil coolers for both the trans and motor, rewiring the motor so it's a bit more sano, fresh LS6 heads...and on and on.

It's great to see all the new projects people have built up over the past couple years.  Super impressive!

Nice adapter! Looks well done. What did they charge you for that?

I found a machine shop that did 2 examples, one in steel, and one in aluminium. The total was about $300. If it works well, I'll post the design here.

So far so good. I've only put 100 or so miles on the car since installing the adapter though.

I think there's 2 parts to this. Reinforce the firewall so it doesn't flex. Position the MC at the right angle so the bore is lined up with the throw of the pedal and shaft.

I'll scan and post my drawings - which are basically on the back of a cocktail napkin.
