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.

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 …

After upgrading to the dual master setup, I was having some major flexing going on with the brake mount and the firewall. I tried reinforcing the firewall with the thicker plating and the turnbuckle solutions, but I was still seeing flexing that was adversely affecting my braking. While over at Mike's (87-944S) house, a flash of technical inspiration struck. The following photos is what Mike and I came up with: a 10.75" piece of .5" round tubing welded to 2x 1/8" inch thick flats. Mounted between the brake mount and the drivers side frame, there is negligible flex and I don't get all of the vibration that I was getting from the strut tower. Definitiely a more comprehensive solution than the turnbuckle/heim joint (IMHO). So there you have it - my first technical contribution to the board. Your mileage may vary. Thanks to Mike for the Hawaiian Punch!!

Nice, I like how your MC mount sets the inlets vertical.

Thanks, but the mount is an XSCHOP creation.
