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've been reading about the master cyl / heat / clearance issue and starting wondering if a bellcrank of some kind could be used to just move it. Turns out somebody has thought of this before and actually built it (not for the 944, but the concept is interesting).

My stock MC looks like a 10deg angle up, there might be room just behind the drivers front shock tower. We'll see as I get this thing apart. Right now it's a bit messy in there yet, I've only just begun disassembly in the engine bay.

Nice article.
The older 911's had the booster and MC running left to right, using a bell crank to transfer motion from the pedal.
Gt1scca, I and Xschop discussed this idea before Xschop made way with his set-up.........we didn't feel that there was enough clearance to the side.
Having said that, If you discover otherwise please let us know.

heh, is there enough room to flip the assembly 180 and put it up in the rain tray? seems a bit too elaborate though.

Master Cyl Relocation Empty MC

Post  xschop Thu Aug 20, 2009 9:03 am

The USPS where I work is slower than well, uh, USPS anywhere else lol!
I expect the modded 2312 header to arrive anytime soon since it's coming back from Canada (Thanks J.J.)
When it gets here, I can put the final design on the Dual MC bracket. Even before the Dual MC was discussed with 948 and GT1scca, I had already thought it would be trick to run a heim joint push-rod extension in an extention tube all the way up across the plane of the driver's head and mount the MC/Dual MC off a bracket near the area where the old truck alternator spot was ( I'm moving it to passenger's side).

USPS= Usually Slow Probably Stolen scratch

Their is a huge amount of room in the fenders, if I was going to do this . That's where I would mount the MC.

go to my gallery and look where i mounted mine i put it on the floorboard i still have plenty of room ill post a pic once i complete the car .ive even toyed with the idea of mounting under seat .where i have it mounted now works fine .with the cover on it it just has a small rise to side of door .my car is an automatic but with a dual master u could add clutch pedal to.i have a manual trans 944 that i will convert when finished with this one.my current 944 has logged over 20000 miles with my first 350 then i pulled it to put in a roller cam and improve on other parts of the car.

I could see heat being an issue on a turbo car, but why are we worried about it on a LT/LS car? I've run the hell out of mine and never once had a hint of boiling fluid...
I run the Wilwood racing fluid but i think it's way overkill.

I dunno. Neat idea, but too many points of failure, and i don't really see the need!

Has anyone had experience with this one? It it less expensive than the Wilwood one and would qualify me for free shipping if I throw it in the bag. Very Happy
