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 …

Im stuck I think, I tried looking at pics, but it seems very few run stock rad? mine is brand new and should work great, to bad its plastic, or I could just weld AN fittings to it, that would be so much easier.

from thermostat, down to the bottom of radiator was easy, just a L bend and a short snip
now here is the PITA

from coolant tank lower is 20.2mm
into radiator is 23mm
this hose has to stretch all the way to passengerside of radiator, from where the coolant tank sits, running a straight 22mm "works" but is just not optimal, a 90 bend out of it, then a 70 or so straight towards coolant should do it.


from top of radiator, driverside into engine next to TB
radiator side is 38.5mm
engine side is 33.5mm, also here a straight wont work as ther eisnt enough space.

really open to suggestions here guys, I went to our local parts store yesterday and bought pretty much every hose they had, didnt help much.

I do not have a 951 but I understand one solutioon is to sell the turbo coolant tank and get a n/a tank which will fit on the driver's side. Hoses have been a challenge for me as well. But my case is different becaue my 968 front end is not the same as a 944. Most seem to recommend using Advance Auto part #'s E71317 & D71500. I don't recall which goes where but it should be obvious. Some trimming to fit is required. I do recall the lower hose being really hard to stretch over the fitting on the engine side. My Upper hose is still a problem because I have limited space between the air intake and the water pump pulley. I could actually smell the rubber burning from the hose contacting the pulley so right now the car is down. I am experimenting with a straight section of pipe in that area to gain more clearance. You can source the pipe from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Do a search on the word beaded and you will come up with a selection of straight beaded pipes.

I ran amok on siliconehoses.com today after not finding what I needed on summit, I orderd 90 + 45 degrees 22mm bends

I have removed the hood latch etc, so I have quite a lot of space in that area, Ive also seen thoose part numbers mentioned, but living in Norway its rather hard to get.

plan is to run a 90, into a 45 out of passenger topside of rad, to coolant tank and a 90 reducer into a straight, into a 90 bend to engine, guess it will look a bit ghetto, but I also orderd some alu pipes to be able to make stuff rigid, and I can always cut & weld some stuff if needed.

I didn't know your location; you can make it visible in your profile settings. THe Advance Store part numbers will cross reference directly to Gates Rubber Company numbers. So another possibility would be if Gates has a distributor in Scandinavia. But it sounds like you should have enough part to rig something up, even if only a temporary mesure to get it running.
