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 started a thread in the 4.8/5.3 section but this section is more fitting. I bought this car for a great price, it sat for over 20 years because of a coolant leak. After I got it and ran the numbers it didn’t make sense to me to keep the original engine.

I’ve pulled the original engine, cleaned and sprayed the engine bay. I got a later model rack and converted it to manual. Fitted a tilton balance bar to the brake pedal for a dual MC. Got a griffin radiator that I’ll have to remove the filler neck to fit in place of the original. I got a fuse/relay panel for the engine and I’m adding relays for the headlights and fog lights.

I’m getting a 5.3 from an 03 1500 with DBW. I am going to convert it to DBC. I have a 2 piece bellhousing, s10 slave cylinder, C5 flywheel, and a Dodge D150 clutch kit. The clutch bolts up to the flywheel after drilling new holes for the dowels. I have a local machinist making the adapter plate and pilot bearing adapter.

I am making the motor mounts myself. Is it a bad idea to use the plans from this site to make the mounts from? For the exhaust I am going to make my own headers most likely. I’d like to explore some manifold options but there are no success stories yet.

Thanks! I’m trying to do as much as I possibly can to save some money. I’m picking up my torque tube adapter and pilot bearing adapter tomorrow. I actually got 2 sets made, one for me and one for my dad. I got the engine pulled, somewhat cleaned up. I’m going to modify the stock oil pan to match the milodon, and I will notch it for the steering rack. Got the radiator mounted,I had a few broken exhaust manifold bolts also.
