You might try Bruce Turk's suggested suppliers at the top of this page..

http://www.vsaab.com/html/turksparts.htm

And perhaps do a search on http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/ to see if there is any mention there.

P.S. Looky what I found here

Ok, no drama. The pricelist on that link is in PDF file format. If your computer can't read it you probably don't have a PDF reader such as Acrobat, It's a big download which you can get at

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

I'd suggest getting a) a mate who has a copy of Acrobat on a CD to load it on your PC, or b) buying a PC magazine which has all common programs on the freebie CD that they usually come with and loading it from the CD, or c) downloading from the above site and watch your life slip by..unless you're on broadband in which case it won't take too long at all!

Message me if you have any more probs.

In the meantime you can suss this out

Mark, you tried Burton at all?

There is also some place in Germany that does bits for V4s, but I can't recall their name off the top of my head - try searching old posts on saab-v4.co.uk...

Noooooooooooo don't do that, the English V4 is crap!

And you have such a unique van there, don't mess with it.

But if you must change then let me know, I could be interested in that engine...

Why not secure the parts from Ford Industrial - which is what this engine is.

I wonder if this engine is still in production ?
