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.

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 …

So this is my first post, I am maybe 2/3 the way though my conversion. I am doing an ls1 with mustang hydroboost with 944 master cylinder. I have the 1/2” spacers, engine mounts, and adapter bracket from TPC. I also installed the firewall reinforcement plate for good measure. When I was installing the hydroboost adapter plate I noticed the 944 brake pedal clevis was not inline with the pedal and was binding. I slotted the holes slightly in the adapter plate moving the hydroboost closer to the engine, I’m guessing about 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. It looks like the brake clevis is now perfectly aligned with the brake pedal but now I have eaten into the hydroboost to valve cover clearance. One of the valve cover bolts is uncomfortably close to the adapter bracket of the hydroboost. Does anyone know about how much the engine moves under load. I could probably file the master cylinder down a bit but I’m not sure what a good clearance target is. I would rather not run solid bushings if I have a choice.

They are all really close like that. Engine barely moves, and not enough to hit.

Just got my 944 running. I did check this area again and it looks like it doesn’t hit, there is enough clearance. But I am hitting on the pcv outlet. I am planning on grinding the valve cover down or possibly welding a fitting on and removing even more material. I did slot my hydroboost bracket to move it inboard (closer to the engine), making my problem worse. I wanted my brake pedal aligned to the HB shaft, originally it was close to 1/4” off. I did notice the engine barely moves when installed. That defiantly makes me goodlier good, a lot of things are really tight under the hood.
