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 …

I was wondering if anyone has run into what I am currently dealing with.I Have a 1983 944 with the old school RH bell housing that uses the Porsche clutch master cylinder and a Corvett clutch slave cylinder.Everything assembled ok but the first time I bled the system and pushed the clutch pedal down clutch pressure plate spring would not disengage.I am using a SPC pressure plate for a 1983-1992 Camaro IROC.I actually bent the area around the clutch master cylinder and now have to do some weld repair and patch plate around the area where it is mounted.I cant believe the hydraulic pressure is not enough to disengage this pressure plate.The clutch fork begins to move but as soon as the TO bearing contacts the springs stops dead!I built a fixture to test the master and slave for piston movement and that seems fine pistons move full stroke and return.Has anyone ran into this problem before?

Stock Porsche master cylinder won't work. You have to use a bigger one. Kent at TPC has the correct master cylinder in stock.

Thanks for the response.This partial kit was found on Ebay and a Porsche 944 clutch master cylinder was included with an adapted section of brake line and flex hose attached so I just concluded it was part of the kit.So the Porsche cylinder doesnt have the stroke/pressure to operate the Corvette slave properly.That makes sense! I wonder how the previous owner of the kit made out with this combo?Thanks a lot for the info!

May be why the kit was for sale. He couldn't make it work. LOL

I'm always glad to help

Maybe the flex in your firewall is preventing the clutch from disengaging. I have the TPC kit for the clutch in my car and I have no problem with it. The kit came with a Corvette slave cylinder and a Porsche 944 master cylinder. The clutch disengagement is a little closer to the floor than I prefer but I got used to it. Another thing you will find is that all these cars are different. What might work on one car might not work on an other. Gil

I don't know if this would be of any help but I have a stock 944 clutch master cylinder and i am using a McLeod hydraulic T/O bearing and it works perfect. The 944 master is the size that McLeod recommends for their hydraulic T/O bearing.

For the LT engines, GEN 2, the the stock 944 clutch MC has plenty of volume to move the 84-88 Corvette clutch SC..

Assuming your pivot point is set correctly,  RH would have set this originally, and you have the correct components, my first guess is that you have not bled the SC correctly.
My second, would be that either the MC or SC is bad.

The best way bleed this is to have the SC higher than the MC. Make sure to overfill the reservoir as it pulls from the top and can suck air quite quickly.

I just replaced my SC a few weeks ago, 5 minutes.
