    Description

    Porsche Ims Intermediate Shaft Bearing Upgrade - Eternal Fix with Oil Pressure Feed - Permanently Fix Your Intermediate Shaft With The Eternal Fix! Unlike Failure Prone Ball Bearings, Eps Uses A Patented Cylindrical Bearing With Thrust Control.

    Prevent future catastrophic engine failure permanently with the only true Eternal Fix for the notorious Porsche intermediate shaft bearing. Unlike the other failure-prone ball bearing products that the original IMS and other upgrades on the market use, EPS uses a patented cylindrical bearing with thrust control that can be pressed directly into the back of the engine without disassembly. The cylindrical bearings have over 12 times the load capacity of other ball bearing solutions making the EPS IMS bearing the clear choice.  Backed by a full 5-year warranty and includes an oil feed modification kit. Order yours today! 

    WHAT MAKES OUR SOLUTION DIFFERENT?

    Roller bearings are not intended for carrying large axial loads. Similar to failure-prone ball bearings, when cylindrical roller bearings are used for thrust control, the roller becomes compromised due to the limited surface contact area on the sides of the rollers. The results of using a cylindrical bearing for thrust control will be similar to all other ball bearing solutions.

    In our patented system, we use a 15mm cylindrical bearing with thrust control that allows for the separation of the axial load from the radial load. Our roller bearings do NOT carry the axis load (thrust control) on the side, which leaves the roller free to carry only the radial load (main load). The axial load is carried exclusively on the entire permitter of the outer race. This results in a bearing that is not overloaded and will last the lifetime of the engine.

    EPS recommends using this product in conjunction to the Rear Main #8 Seal and Housing

    ******WILL NOT WORK ON AN IMS THAT HAS ALREADY FAILED. IMS BEARING FAILURES RESULT IN A COMPROMISED SHAFT. IF YOUR IMS BEARING HAS ALREADY FAILED YOU WILL NEED THE ENTIRE SHAFT WITH BEARING****

    THE EPS ETERNAL FIX Trade Mark

    The Patent Pending IMS Eternal Fix Trade Mark Retro Fit installs in-car without removal or disassembly of the engine required. We also offer fully Rebuilt Intermediate Shafts Upgraded with the Eternal Fix Trade Mark for those performing an engine rebuild. The Cylindrical Bearing with Thrust Control design has a load capacity 5 times greater than the inferior, failure prone, Ball Bearing solutions on the market!  

    Why Cylindrical is Best

    Cylindrical Bearings have very high load bearing capacity, 12 times more than Ball Bearing. Cylindrical Bearings are used in, High Temp & Low Viscosity Lubrication such as Automatic Transmissions. They can carry extreme lateral pressure without wear to the friction surfaces. This is because the bearing friction surface is flat not concave. 

    BALL BEARINGS ARE NOT THE SOLUTION!

    If you are reading this then you are aware of the ever so common IMS Bearing Failures. The design flaw with the factory IMS was the use of Ball Bearings in an extremely high load application. Once the Ball Bearings Fail it leads to a Catastrophic and Expensive engine rebuild. DO NOT REPLACE THE FACTORY, FAILURE PRONE, BALL BEARINGS WITH A BALL BEARING "UPGRADE" AS THEY TOO WILL FAIL!!  

     

    • A - IMS Lubrication Oil Exit: Located on the Retro Fit Base (D), this cavity is the lubrication exit point which provides the Cylindrical Bearings, Bearing Races and Friction Plate with a continuous supply of engine oil ( See FIG 3 ) .  Please also see the video at the bottom of the page.  Also included is the new IMS Pressurized Oil Feed Modification Kit (See Bottom).
    • B - Bearing Race: The Bearing Race is the raised hardened steel surface edge of the Bearing Chassis (located on either side of the Bearing). This surface provide a friction point with the Retro Fit Base (D) and the Friction Washer (C). This provides the patent-pending axial thrust control required when using Cylindrical Bearings.  
    • C - Friction Plate: The Friction Plate is a hardened steel washer that provides the inner friction point with the Bearing Race (B)
    • D - Retro Fit Base Friction Surface: This provides the outer friction point with the Bearing Race (B)
    • E - Retro Fit Base Friction Surface: The Cylindrical Bearings provide the radial load support for the IMS. Cylindrical Bearings have a load capacity of more than 5 times that of their Ball Bearing counterparts. Cylindrical Bearings are commonly used in very High Load, High Temperature, Low Viscosity Lubrication applications such as Automatic Transmissions.

    IMS Pressurized Oil Feed Modification Kit

    Please CLICK HERE for the step by step procedure for pressure feeding the IMS bearing with engine oil. This is achieved by punching a small in the cover at the front of the IMS. The front cover is a very thin metal plug, only .25MM thick. Using the included center punch and a hammer the hole can be opened with relative ease.

    The Oil Pump's factory 8MM Allen drive is then replaced with a slotted 8MM drive. The slot on the new 8MM drive will provide a governed oil passage from the oil Pump pressure side into and through the IMS. This pressurized oil will flow through the IMS and in to the the IMS bearing. This will maintain a constant, fresh oil flow to the IMS bearing.
