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.

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 …

Got my pan back and installed, here is the new look. I will figure out a better paint later, i just wanted to cover the fresh steel.

Now I have no clearance issues.

Nevermind. I saw you got back from Iraq in March 2009 and from Arkansas. The 688th EN CO was there across the street from where I was and a bunch of their guys are in Afghanistan with me right now. Thought I'd ask.

I didnt want anyone to think I was out of the game. I have been busy with school and family. I purchased a brand new 2009 Suzuki Boulevard motorcycle and needed to get the tags and some wet weather gear. So the project as been scooted around a little.

I do have the dust cover done and ready for a final fitment, the engine is on the floor ready for a test fit to make sure everything is still in line since there has been a big discussion on the torque shaft and these clutches. Then it will be getting a final install.

I need to locate a wilwood clutch m.c. for the spec clutch and pressure plate upgrade. It looks like the road will be waiting a little longer. It sucks but it is a necessity for my school and family to be squared away first.

Good luck with all the builds going on and ask me anything you may need help on. I will be back soon.

I am almost back up, I have the engine installed and bolted everything down. I installed the front coil overs and hooked all electricals up. At the moment I am waiting on a piece of metal welding to come back so I can mount my oil relocation kit on the frame. All seems to be coming along, I am keeping fingers crossed that this rebuild is worth it, I did everything and tripled checked. Wish me luck on the start up later this week.

Like a boy crying wolf, the car runs again. It idled for a few minutes before I shut her down at 50psi oil pressure and about 1100 rpm.

I will keep you all posted.

Well soon to be back on the pavement, I grab some S2 cab axles and an early manual steering rack for a few bucks from perfection plus in little rock, everything is looking promisimg. Got to tear the axles down and clean them up then install them. After that figure out the manual rack and intermediat shaft length and the car will drive again.

Im excited

Awesome.

Going with the manual rack I see. I gave mine away ('83 N/A) and switched my manual to power when I dropped in the LT1. I had two steering blowout's before using all stainless braided lines and removing a line filter, that I now know, is a bad idea (added a cooler as well). Do you have to go with manual? Power assist is very tight in the 944... wouldn't give it up now.

I am going to give it a try, if I like it I will keep it. I do fine without the power rack hooked up. So I figured I would try a true manual.

The only power assist I would like would be the brakes.

I have a manual rack. Tires make a big difference. My car came with 16" wheels and worn out 205's on the front. When I drove it with those the steering was overly stiff and not liveable. I went to 17" fronts with 225/40 and the steering is much lighter. The only time it is really a thought is backing out of a parking spot uphill.

S2 25 spline axles and joints are a perfect fir in the 86 turbo, took it out last night and it ran great besides needing a tune for the cam. So I am back on the road now to get the rest straightened out.

Been working on the car since the radiator is down for the moment. Here is what I have done to the front so far.

Thinking about dropping the intake with another elbow to bring the filter into the bumper opening, or just fitting it through the fender to have it away from the engine bay heat.

Replicating Eric's hood hinges and making room for whatever happens with the radiator to raise it off the ground. I want it above the sway bar and crossmember if at all possible.
