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 ran a hose from the driver rear to the back of the intake manifold where the vaccum line is and capped all the passenger and throttle body vaccums and everything ran fine for me on my '01

Post  xschop on Tue Jul 06, 2010 7:44 am

Thanks Collin another good call. I ran it like that and installed PCV1009.... It is the equivalent of what GM came up for the recall on the LS engines consuming too much oil.....Basically a mini "catch can" from what I can see as it is a hollow PCV (no check ball & spring to get clogged) with only a 0.100" hole in the bottom that doesn't let much oil splash/pass thru like the old design.... Very Happy

Just re-used the 14-pin attachment point as a mounting base for the driver's side.....And Fan relays were so convenient to splice into factory harness fan (+) leads....RED/blk & BLACK/red.....

Cut the black tape off of the relay wires that you have right up next to the relay it's self. As thing heat up the tape will start to change shape( shrink) and it will pull the connector off , maybe not now , but when you least need it to.........

Will do. I have like 100 rolls of electrical tape. I tend to go overboard Very Happy

I'm still dealing with my TTwist II's acting stupid.....The hub machining on the wheel itself interferes with the wheel hub dust cap..... It's hard to get an 18" rim chucked up on the lathe especially with new rubber instaled....

Giving the caps the smackdown..... First welded the inner cap rim in three 1" draws and siliconed the inner ridge because when I lathed off the cap I don't want to get hit since it is hydroformed. So the edge that interferes with the Rim inner machining is gone. I will weld a large flat nut to screw in a slide hammer for removal....

Has someone ran into having to put on an oil filter adapter with the oil bung M20 x 1.5. If so what filter did you go with for the V8 swap. As I understand oil filters need to match some pressure bypass mechanism within the filters?

Post  xschop on Wed Jul 07, 2010 10:58 am


This M20 x 1.5 threaded filter is dimensionally identical to the fram PH8A except it has 12 PSi relief valve....
Question is the PH8A is 8-10 PSi.......is the extra 2 PSi going to be a problem in running this with the 5.3 V8?

Looks good! I feel bad that I can't help you too much, considering you've been helpful to me. You've got lots of great info up when it comes time to do the fuel and wiring!

What are those front control arms you're using? You can seem em in the picture of your front calipers.

No harness, no VSS kit, and no oil relo kit from Greg. I guess that check is "still in the mail" Evil or Very Mad

Rx7 arms with replaceable 17mm Ball joints.... No one has seen my replaceable 19mm ball joint mod Twisted Evil

You will see the V8 swap specific mounts in the morning, I left my transfer cable from the cammie cell at the day job.....

Turbo twist II mod knocked out too as of an hour ago.....who needs 8mm spacers? No "fender rolling" BS happenin' here yo.... lol!

I thought I could do all the things I had promised, when I promised them.
It's very simple, and things are tight everywhere...
Money evaporates quickly when budget exceeds bank.

Medical bills from:

3 ER visits.
11 chiropractors.
7 medical doctors.
14 different Rx "band-aids".
CT Scan & X-Rays (MRI not ordered...Hmmm.)
Physical therapy.

...and the header deal, all conspired to put me in the red.
I have sold or returned most of my project parts, and it still hasn't been enough.
I had to go back to a "normal" job today, just to try and get back on my feet.

I'm not hiding from anything, either.
I've watched this go down the toilet with no clear resolution...
Until today.

As far as what I owe you...
When I earn some green, you'll see the USPS blue.

No need to run me in the dirt over it, either.
BS? It has been for me lately...
Sorry you feel that way.

I'm trying to be upfront here, even if it hurts my credibility.
I haven't been able to get my money tree to bloom this summer...
Even the simplest shipping fees have become monstrosities.
I have put everything I had into the site and related parts.
Now it's time to restructure everything.

See why no one else wants to tackle this?
I didn't plan things this way, but sh*t happens.

I will honor all sales and debts as quickly as possible. PayPal links are temporarily down on the 944V8S site, and will be back up as soon as this bump is smoothed out. The outstanding orders will be fulfilled first, but it may take 2-3 weeks to settle everything. Any future orders will be filled within a reasonable time frame.

I've done a lot for this community over the last several years, and not even financing will keep me down. Most of it has been done on the cheap, or even "free". FYI, the QuickTime BH was developed from the free Wifi of a McDonald's parking lot...LMAO.

I'll make things right ASAP.

I bought Wix #51324 after finding a cross reference for Fram #2921....
It is actually 3/4" shorter than the 2921 which may come in handy.

I do have a question. Is it O.K. to mount the adapter and filter up-side-down? There is a blow back preventer on the filter....The reason I want to make it up-side-down is the adapter I bought has 1/4 NPT ports and the aftermarket Oil pressure gauge comes with a 1/4 NPT pressure sensor and I need to mount the filter upside down to put the sender on underneath the car off the frame rail....

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And I am going to machine an adapter M12 x 1.5 (LS/truck water temp. sensor thread pitch) to 1/4 NPT aftermarket Temp sensor...... and stick it in the passenger rear head.....

Awww man, Greg! Sorry to hear you're in that situation again. You've really poured some hard work into this whole operation. It's tough to make something like this into a full-time gig. Wish i were well-enough off to just send you some cash, that would be nice for both of us! Smile

Greg,

Hope you'll hang in there. Your hard work in creating all this is the only thing that has made a conversion even a remote possibility for a shade-tree like me. Please announce when you are back in production and I'll be one of your first orders.

Not to be smart, but it looks like Lindsey Racing is right in your back yard. I thought every '44 owner knows who they are.

They make gauge plates in a lot of different configurations and will drill custom ones as well.

I had read that someone had to drill out the adapter Autometer makes for the LS metric thread coolant port to aftermarket temp gauges......I bought it thinking I would have to drill it for my nice digital temp gauge or lathe the sender down as I have done before.....

Luck has it that Glow-Shift has their temp sender already lathed down (sender pic is of 1/4" dia.).... no modding required Very Happy

Full-time work, part-time pay.
But, no problemo...

The site is still up, and is only being "re-financed".
PayPal will get a new dedicated 944V8S account shortly.
I have worked hard to make it work, and I'm not giving up yet.
I may be down, but definitely not out for the count.

My full-time now is already becoming 6 days a week OT, with insurance and benefits...

"Responsibility" money, if you will...
944V8S will no longer be depended upon for the necessities, that's all.

Xschop's 5.3 LM7 build - Page 4 Empty Good, Bad, Ugly

Post  xschop on Tue Jul 20, 2010 7:16 pm

I'm a little ugly after working in 100+ temps the last 3 days.....
More bad news is it's 104 friggin degrees here today.....
Good news is she fired right up..... Very Happy

Big question...how close is too close for the driver's side exhaust collector to be near the stainless braided oil relocation lines?

I'm gonna drive it to the shop tomorrow and have my 2.5" Maganaflow installed, I may have them cut and reweld the collector down pipe a little further away from the lines as they sit 1.5" away from the exhaust pipe...

I think mine are about 1" away, i wouldn't want them much closer. You could put a heat blanket on them (and/or the headers) to keep them extra safe. Having one of them blow could be disastrous!

Just the Digital LED water and oil pressure gauges and will hook up the factory tach, that's it.
I did get rid of the hood latch and made a trick hood pin set-up, I didn't like the keyed hood pins after all and installed the old skool pull pins....love em.... Plus the keyed pins require the sheet metal under the hood to take a lot of fabbing because of the locknut. The pull pins just require drilling straight thru. I will post a diagram of a simple adjustable bracket that can use any of the aftermarket pins....
