First real DIY I ever did was on an '88 turbo - it was the head gasket. Wasn't too bad of a job, and despite taking a couple days I never regretted the $800 I didn't spend.
The clutch slave is easy. Search for the big fat nut trick and it'll show you everything you need to know. I would replace the pilot bearing, input shaft seal, and slave cylinder but I would leave that rear main seal ALONE. They rarely leak, and replacement is a HORRIBLE job IMHO. If you decide you want to tackle it, shoot me an email and I can loan you the Saab tool for replacing it. Meh - maybe you don't want to do that - it'd probably be $20 or $30 in shipping, and you can buy one for $100. Your call. In any case, i wouldn't do the seal without it, not with the engine in the car anyway. But, really, I wouldn't bother - they just don't wear out very often.
