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 …

Just finished an ls3 swap into my 944 na and keeping blowing power steering hoses. First time blew the pressure line from the ps pump to the hydroboost. Now i just blew the high side to the rack. I can see the hoses moving when turning the steering wheel, and feel a bit of pulsation as the wheels get to the end of their run, which is more prevalent turning left. Both hoses blew turning left, with the wheel cranked all the way.

Im using a used hb out of a 2000 mustang gt, stock ps rack, reman Cardone f-body pump, and hose kit from TPC.

Anyone else run into this or can maybe shed some light? Using the hose kit from TPC.

We just had the same issue. Going to try a different brand hose and see what happens. I'm thinking the hose we got was either old stock (possibly dry rotted) or not fluid compatible. I'll let you know if this fixes it or not.

We used a new hose made by Aeroquip, and it has had zero problems. Kent is talking to the the original hose supplier to see why theirs failed.

Thank you for the feedback. That makes sense. Something felt off when i was putting the hoses together. Explains why i oiled the street down twice, ha.

We looked at the original hose pretty close where it blew out of the fitting and the inner rubber lining was cracking. I'm thinking it may have been some very old stock that dry rotted.

Same here. Both hoses blew out of the fitting. When putting them together, the fittings seemed to go on too easily and the inner hose seemed a bit off. In any case, i cut off the damaged ends and reassembled for the time being so i can at least run the car to do some logging and work on the tune. Will definitely not be driving the car until this gets sorted, as i lost most of the brakes both incidents.
