  1. Refit valve cover 8V

    99 & 90 Workshop
    If I remember correctly, the notch in the cam is very slightly offset. so it will only go on one way?
  2. Speedometer not accurate

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Normally it would be the other way round - over read instead of under read. Are the tyre sizes correct?
  3. new to 99s and found a beaut

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Welcome :) That looks amazing condition!
  4. Ignition lock turns loose

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Great :) There used to be a repair kit for the cogs etc. part - it was different depending on if the car was manual or automatic. If that turns out to be the issue you might be able to find a kit.
  5. Wiper arm spring replacement?

    99 & 90 Workshop
    We do have a sale area - essentially it's at own risk - Saabcentral advises caution by both parties and does not accept responsibitlity nor act as an arbitrator etc.
  6. Wiper arm spring replacement?

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Sorry I've never heard of one of those breaking. My suggestion would be to try a specialist for a good used arm?
  7. Triumph transmission?

    99 & 90 Workshop
    That's the first I've heard of a family link with transmission. But I don't know the history of it. I suspect they are misinformed.
  8. Fuel Smell in Trunk

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Only thing I can think of is perhaps the fuel accumulator on the side of the tank?
  9. Fuel Smell in Trunk

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Yes there is a special tool for the in-tank pumps on metal tanks. It's an over-grown bayonet fitting so the ring needs turning a little bit. Unfortunately the metal is quite soft so using a hammer and cold chisel doesn't really work as it's quite destructive (and of course sparks are something...
  10. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    You're welcome :)
  11. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    While I'm hunting, a couple of other part numbers are: FAG 533584A Timken 513147
  12. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Yes you can do it - I did it on mine. I think you need the driveshafts from a later 99 as well (harder to find in the US as they stopped selling the 99 before other markets). Control arms, balljoints and brake calipers are the same. It's the hubs, hub carriers, disks and driveshafts that...
  13. Front Motor Mount

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Can't find the 99 version but here's an example on the 900 - https://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4795441&postcount=10
  14. Front Motor Mount

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Someone once said about using (ice) hockey pucks?
  15. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Yes, but you have a B20 not a B201 - the heads aren't interchangable. Those manifolds always crack there.
  16. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    I wouldn't want to go past 175ish on a good condition box. It's the car's Achilles heel unfortunately. Although as I said, assuming it's still got its original 4 speed "chillcast" box you have one of the better ones.
  17. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    You're into sport and rally territory there unfortunately. https://www.eeuroparts.com/blog/3973/building-the-ultimate-transmission-for-the-classic-900-part-1/
  18. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    If it's got its original box and it's in good condition, you have one of the strongest boxes available for these cars. How much can it take? Depends how you drive :)
  19. Rebuilding my dad's 1978 99t combi coupe

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Welcome :) Most things you have mentioned have been done before - but bear in mind you have your hands on a VERY rare and iconic car - so I would suggest modifications should be tasteful and in keeping with the pedigree. The turbo and external wastegate are (to me) an integral part of it being...
  20. Where do 6-digit Part Numbers come from?

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Saab part numbers are generally 7 digits for 99s. The last digit is, I think, a check digit used for something or other. The predecessor of the EPC was parts microfiches which show all the part numbers. Hope that helps? :)
