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.

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 have my conversion up and running thanks to the advice from many of you that participate in this forum. Now that I have about 30 miles on it, I have noticed that it seems as though the engine is connected to the wheels through a rubber band. It seems as though there is a lot of "windup" on acceleration. My assumption is that the transaxle mount is mostly to blame. My car still has the stock rubber transaxle mount in it. I have read about filling the stock mount with urethane to stiffen it up. Lindsey racing has a solid mount available. I can make a solid mount very easily but I wanted to know if the solid mount is as noisy as they say. Would it be too obnoxious for a vehicle that is driven mostly on the street? Or is the urethane filled stock mount sufficient? Thank you, Gil

the solid mount is noisy, been there done that. i ended up machining my solid mount out and running bushings like the semi solid mount. its not nearly as noisy, but it brought back a little of that "rubber band" feeling. not nearly as bad as a worn out stocker, but not as solid feeling as the solid.

I have an extra rubber mount that I will fill with urethane. I will also make a solid mount and insulate it with bushings so I can compare them. Where can I get some urethane bushings? What are the dimensions of the bushings? Everyone here has been very helpful. Thanks, Gil
