I assume you mean the timing belt went out, and you are rebuilding it? You need a copy of the Saab EPC CD (e-bay, $10), with the diagrams and part numbers, to start. www.saabsite.com, and www.eeuroparts.com have some of the parts you will need, but w/o drawings and part numbers, you have a lot of detective work ahead of you... I would check www.car-part.com for used heads.

Sounds like he wants to flat out part it out.

Ebay would actually be your best bet. Sure to get better prices that way.
You can also checkout Saablink.net.
They have a forum for parting out cars.

I think there's a pretty good demand on ebay, even for things that are easy to take out. Switches, interiors, wheels etc seem to go for a lot.

Of course it depends on how much time you want to spend taking out little bits and mailing to people. Do an ebay search on SAAB 900 and take a look at how much a leather seat, wheels, or an SID can fetch. Of course there is some effort involved in getting these parts off and shipping them.

It can be re-built for the price of a set of new valves and a few gaskets - not that hard a job!!!!!!!
