Should I keep the 99 djet original



Saabers:

I am having second thoughts of turning away from the 16valve/99 conversion, epidemic.

Having issues with the D jet, for the spark plugs are(running  richly) fouling.   A times, it runs well, then suddenly, back to fouling spark plugs. 

Since, I 've owned the car, this has been the case.  Certainly, all can be fixed, yet how reliable are these early fuel injection systems?

Thanks

Re: Craigslist Find: 1962 96 Dusty Time Capsul in NJ

Hi Vaughn,
Did you see all three chapters of the Barn Find Story. If not, I can send them to you. If you did, then you are up
to speed, as we did not complete the brakes before we had to tuck it away for the winter, and the garage is
packed too damn tight to get much work done on it. However, we have sourced most of the brake parts and hope to
tackle that project either over the winter or as soon as spring springs! I am still not certain that I have
the correct front wheel cylinders, or the correct master cylinder for a 1962 96, so if anyone can clarify
part numbers or where I can source these parts, I would be grateful.I also still need a nice original (not
perfect) front right bumper end, and a thermostat.
Not yet ready to part with that car, as it will probably stay as a permanant part of the collection because I
waited a long time to find a nice original bull nose stroker.
Thanks,
Chas

Chas, I am glad you are keeping the 96 . You will find it a joy to drive 
when you get it sorted out.  It will be a hit at any SAAB gathering, for 
sure. You won't want to let it go. Tom Donney's got a good page on the 
cylinders . He also steered me to a seller who had a complete set for my 
63. I can't remember the name, but they had a lot of stuff on ebay.

and you might consider having your master restored/re-sleeved.  I 
imagine anything else you find will need the same.

Bill

Re: Turbo and VSAAB listmember savings alert from West of Sweden



It could be done on a Sonett V4 with some inventive modifications, but this would be Skill Level 3. I've seen a few Swedes do this. As for Sonett III, there's nowhere for the rear muffler to go.

Hence, I can give no guarantees to any Sonett owners.

Soccerball washers / and thoughts?



overtorquing the lug bolts over and over gets them distorted or cup shaped over time.   
 
consider this?   who at saab in the 60's ever thought those lug bolt washers would still be in use at this time and date?   while well designed , i do not think anyone ever in their wildest thoughts ever considered that proper orientation or condition of a wheel lug bolt washer would be a topic of conversation in the year 2011.   let alone anyone would still be driving or even farther "way out" racing one.    we are a huge minority of enthusiasts keeping together the remaing examples of our cars we have interest in.    being the keepers of the faith is not as easy as it is to type..is it?

74 sonett hood question

A friend and I are working on 2 sonetts. A 73 & 74.  The 73 we had for a few months but after stripping it found no
floor pan. On Sunday we found another (the 74)on craigslist and bought it during a snowstorm.  after
getting half way home we realised what we bought has no pop up headlights only the ones in the grill!!   

It's in perfect shape but can not find another without pop-up headlights.  Could someone have glassed up the
old spots??  Any ideas??  Too cold today -10F to look under the bonett.  Aftermarket hood?  Where the pull
handle would be is a rocker switch. HMMM....

Re: 74 sonett hood question

Thank you very much. I have been browsing photos and was wondering how well they work at that low in the grill. 
I guess we will find out.
