While trying to rebuild my slave cylinder off my 96, I saw that the bore had rust and a bit rough. I grabbed the slave cylinder off my 1971 Sonett, and although in very nice conditioner was disappointed that the female bore where the male fitting from the clutch line goes is smaller diameter.
SO off I go to the second Sonett, and same thing
When did Saab alter the Slave cylinders. The hole itself along with the fitting is larger on the 71 96. As both of these cars are the same years, is there a reason why the Sonetts carry smaller fittings?
I spent a bulk of the day ..driving from part store to part store..hydraulic stores to hydraulic stores searching for an male to female adapter to get it to work, yet no one had anything.
A guy told me he could make a braided line for 45 dollars; yet I am not sure if the 96 was designed to have a larger fitting/hole?
Any ideas for a 96 slave cylinder? (this way I would nto have to alter the clutch line fittings) I know about White post restorations, yet money is a bit tight, hence looking for a thrifty way out.
