Clutch Actuation

Porsche 924 Turbo

The clutch is hydraulically actuated. A servo spring (3) as adjusted by the factory, reduces the pedal effort from approx. 20 kp (44 lbs.) to approx. 15 kp (33 lbs.). The spring tension can be adjusted by a hex nut to lower clutch pedal effort by as much as 30 or as little as 8 . The clutch is self adjusting, and the clutch lining wear can be checked by removing the rubber plug (7) located on the starter side of the bell housing. The clutch hydraulic system is filled with brake fluid. The fluid...

Oxygen Sensor System

During recent years the laws which regulate exhaust gas emissions have become increasingly strict. The constant volume sampling or CVS test is used deformine allowable limits of hydrocarbons, carbon-monoxide and oxides of nitrogen. It is possible to meet the present emission limits with secondary air injection, catalytic converter and E.G.R. exhaust gas recirculation . This emission control system has a number of disadvantages o The E.G.R. system increases fuel consumption considerably and...

Turbocharger System

Systeme Injection Porsche 924

Idle The engine draws-in fresh air through air filter 1 . The air flows across the sensor plate of mixture control unit 2 into intake duct 3 and to compressor 4 of the turbocharger. From here, the intake air is fed to the engine by way of a pressure duct 6 through the throttle valve housing 7 . The exhaust gases are routed through exhaust manifold 10 to turbine 11 of the turbocharger and from there through the catalytic converter and muffler. At idle there is no pressurization of the intake...


Porsche Boost Pressure Switch

The exhaust gas turbocharger is mounted at the right side of the engine under the exhaust manifold. In contrast to the 930, the pop-off valve 8 on the 924 is located directly in the compressor housing between the inlet and outlet. 1 Compressor housing inlet side 7 Compressor housing outlet side The safety switch is located in the pressure duct between the turbocharger and throttle valve housing. When the boost pressure increases to a value of 1.1 - 1.4 bar, the safety switch will switch the two...

Ignition System

Porsche 924 Ignition System

The 924 turbo engine has a breakeriess transistorized ignition system. There are two resistor wires leading to the coil. The wire between terminal 15 on the ignition control unit and terminal 15 on ignition coil has a resistance of 1.0 2. The wire between terminal 16 on the starter and terminal 15 on ignition coil has a resistance of 1.5 i2. Note Do not make these wires shorter during repairs.

Control Pressure Regulator Operation

Ignition Control Unit

With the engine stopped, or running with less than 0.1 bar boost, both springs operate against the control valve. The control pressure is high. Control pressure will drop full load enrichment when boost pressure at the top of the diaphragm exceeds 0.1 bar. The operation test for full load enrichment can be made only when the boost pressure is above 0.3 bar. Electric Control of Fuel Pumps Ignition System The 924 mixture control unit does not have an air sensor contact. The operation of the pump...
