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 …

Hello,
I'm working on my transmission while it's out of the car, which includes a 5th gear swap and transmission reinforcement plate.  I've already got all the parts, and had the tail shaft housing machined down.

The stock tail shaft housing uses a paper gasket.  Do I need to put a new gasket on both sides of the reinforcement plate?  Just on one side or the other of the plate, or just RTV it both sides and don't worry about the paper gasket?

As much fun as pulling the trans is, I'd really like for it to not leak when it's all buttoned back up!  Very Happy

Thanks!
-Gareth

well it depends on how you had the machining done. if they machined the exact thickness of the plate off the rear housing, use a gasket on one side and silicone on the other side. it does not matter what side of the plate the gasket is on. if they machined the thickness of the plate and a gasket off the rear housing, use 2 gaskets.

dont use silicone on the gasket though, thats just a recipe for a leak.

Thanks for the reply Sharkey!

I took the reinforcement plate with me to the shop and had them remove the exact thickness.

Since you have to remove the shift fork to get the reinforcement plate on, I'll silicone the plate to the transmission, and gasket the tail shaft housing side.

Thanks again,
-Gareth

i myself do it the other way, gasket on the trans first, reinforcement plate, then assemble 5th gear, silicone the rear housing and drop it on.
