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 …

Got tired of cracking bellhousings and took the plunge on a Quicktime bellhousing. Got a question: What size bolts are used to fasten the throwout bearing to the bellhousing? Documentation doesn't seem to have that info.....Thanks in advance!

After a quick trip to the local Home Depot, discovered I needed a 5/16-18 fastener.

Really disappointed with this BH. I had to take a grinder to the opening where the throwout bearing ports would exit the BH. For the money spent on it, you'd think it would be ready to go!

Well - the story continues..... Called Lakewood Industries support line, and it took them 36 hours just to give me the information I already knew (that there was a reason for why my 'stock' hydraulic bearing does not work).  At least he broke down and give me the cellphone number for the guy responsible for the design of the 944/LS1 bellhousing (and founder of Quicktime Parts).  After a 30 minute chat I discovered that the design was a special build for Blackforest Racing and that Renengade Hybrids was also wanting to use the design but pulled out of the deal after they found out that they would not have exclusive rights to sell the bellhousing.
Called BFR and they are NOT using a standard (2 mounting bolts) LS1 hydraulic bearing but some other, 3 mounting bolt, 'racing' unit. Unfortunately, the person who handles their 944 conversions was not available when I called, but I hope to get that part number today!

Eric @ TPC probably knows what you need. I have a QuickTime bell housing in my car that he installed for me...

I've always suspected it wasn't designed right

Sure enough - Eric came through before the BFR guys did.  Just for posterity (and the daring who decide to go with the QTP bellhousing), the recommended bearing is a RAM 798-78135, which also needs a T-10 bearing retainer.  A least there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!  Thanks docwyte and admin for the info!!

Looks like I have lucked out. The RAM throwout bearing and retainer setup has the correct distance from the centerforce clutch that I have without the need for shims. After drilling and tapping a new hole for the bearing peg it looks like I'm on my way with the new BH!

WARNING! If you decide to use the QTP bellhousing/RAM Clutches Hydraulic Slave, make sure you check which clutch you're using. I happen to be using a Centerforce with the self-balancing weights (I am sure there are other clutches out there with the same setup) - you need to double check that the weights won't hit the aligning peg

The Spec clutch fits fine with the QTP bellhousing...

So what exactly is the depth of the QT from block face to TOB mate face?
