Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

i remember needing injector seals as well. not expensive and easy to install.
i just changed a bunch of seals when the engine was pulled and replaced the tensioner with one from an xk150 jag at this fit and looked exactly like the one i pulled from the car. i could not source a "glue" for the chain guides so i re used those (asbestos was used back in '78 according to a long time engine rebuilder) anyways, with a new bearing for the upper transmission gear the car is super quiet now.

keep in mind; oil in the gear box is conventional with no sythetic at all.
i added synthetic to the engine and the lifter noise went away... for now;-)

maybe consider new brake lines for the front. i found those at a good price and im so glad i did, the old ones were really brittle.

i have blown a lot of radiator fan fuses over the last couple years and i believe i tracked it down to a corroded connector at the left front corner.. maybe get a few of those:-)
i also pulled the fans out (rebuilt the radiator) and lubricated the bearings with turbine oil "with ZOOM spout!" Click Here
this stuff is amazing, it even quieted the air cabin sensor COMPLETELY in my 9000

i have the water pump removal tool if you need to borrow it. we can work something out.

so glad you got a hold of this car!
im on facebook, saab restoration guys are really cool, see about joining that group.
