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).

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thanks to a couple of you here and froma great shop out of Dallas, Texas I've got my DBW throttle pedal in AND a fantastic schematic of finishing up final wiring before I attempt first start of my 87 NA 944 with LS1 :-)

This has been my first dive into a small block that DIDN'T have a carburetor on it lol

My final wiring should be done soon and I'm running through my head everything to double and triple check before I turn the key.
Pressure gauge for fuel rail, check fluids, gas, niod lights for injectors, etc., etc., etc.,

I would like to spin the motor up some WITHOUT it firing to limber it up a bit and maybe get a little oil flowing....MY QUESTION:
If I remove the coil power connectors to do that...will it hurt anything??

Thanks!

nope, just unplug the main coil harnesses on each side. id also disable your fuel pump or disconnect the injectors so they arent spraying fuel while your cranking.

Unplug the fuel pump relay so you don't flood and wash the cylinder walls down, don't worry about spark.

I am not sure about the LS1 but my LS3 has a plug down low on the block. If you remove the plug I can prime my oil pump. Not a bad idea if you can.

It took quite a bit of cranking to prime my oil system. I did it initially with the fuel system disabled and the spark plugs removed to eliminate compression, engine spins free and fast. Oil pressure! Then installed the plugs and did it again, still without fuel. Oil pressure again, quickly! Hooked it all up and VROOM!

Best of luck with your first start!
