HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

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 am trying to figure out how to do the clutch system. I haven't purchased anything for it yet, not even the bell housing. I remember seeing something about the AC Delco # CT1082 bearing replacing the pilot bearing adapter. Is that true? What other parts have you got to work with your conversions? I need to figure out every part to get and the options I have.

Look in my pics,  brand new.  Clutch and disc, chucked the release bearing.  Complete for about $185, Flywheel was about $70 new. I used  I think a 6302 bearing  for pilot bearing and a piece of .025 shim stock wrapped around it. Yeah I,m cheap but it's still on the road and reliable except when I spin to hard, bounce a wheel and break a cv. Just ordered 275/40/17 nitro nt05's for the back! Anyway check my pics and build thread, I think I posted most of the numbers and stuff, I did everything inexpensive. Only thing I splurged on was the bell housing.
Have fun!

You used the Fenco Dynapak nu1506? What throwout bearing did you use?

I used a McLeod or Ram recomended in posts or manual, can't remember. Also bought recommended gm release bearing support however not enough clearance so built my own, there are pics of That. Looks like there are Dorman ones that might work for about $80 and you wouldn't need a support. I don't have finger height measurements any more but an auto parts store would probably let you measure finger height to figure out hydraulic release bearing . finger height might be available on web.

I would think something like dorman cs360058 for a little over $70 should work

You can spend over $1000 on a clutch and flywheel and release if you want and I could have done the release cheaper but I ordered what was in the manual. Some times it's better if you figure things out for your self. No issues, made it work without additional expense. The manual was't much of a read and I sold it to somebody else for $20.00. Clutch was like $185 new, Flywheel $75, I think the fricken release bearing was $160 and the support $80. Support didn't work and therw it in the scrap metal bin, made my own, The clutch kit I bought is originally for a late 70's Dodge ramcharger with I think a 318. No slip issues, no chatter issues, i'm only about 380 hp but if you feel you need to spend a couple grand on a clutch for the street go ahead. I have over 3 years and about 20000 miles on this clutch and it's not something I feel I need to change in the near future. Actually I haven't done any repairs other than blowing out CV joints because of wheel bounce. Bigger tires on order finally.

Yeah it's just a daily driver and sometimes I feel the need to show 17 year old punks driving $50000 350 Hp Lexus's what a $3000 944 can do but I like it even if it isn't hi buck.
