Subject: rebuilding C900 manual transmissions....


Are there any tip/tricks/etc. relating to rebuilding Saab 5-speed manual transmissions? The manual transmission under the engine of my 1983 900 GLi donor car is coming out soon (I've dismantled a lot of the engine in-place but now it needs to be lifted out), and I've been told by the person who I bought the car off that it had a problem selecting 5th gear before he stopped driving it. I've been checking some of the transmission and clutch upgrade/rebuild parts available from places like saabperformanceparts.com and I know that if I went 'the whole hog' I'd be up for a lot of $$$ getting an uprated clutch kit, new flywheel, replacement pinion gear set, short shifter, etc. but just having the engine and transmission removed from the donor car will be a good start. I'll do some google hunting to find if there are sites covering transmission rebuilding as a specific subject but if anyone knows of some off-hand please let me know. I'd be keen to put links to some of them on the technical library page of my C900 Workshop website at "http://www.nospam.net/library.html". Regards, Craig. PS. I've created a gallery page on the site too now. If anyone would like to have their C900-related images featured (I'll be creating tables to index submissions as they come in and are given the green light), please feel free to submit them. There isn't a specific web-form yet - just a link to the contacts page which has the email address I use for mail relating to that site. -- Craig Dewick - craignospamlet.apana.org.au - Founder/maintainer of the SunShack at www.sunshack.org - Operator of Jedi (an APANA Sydney PoP) - please visit www.jedi.apana.org.au or www.sydney.apana.org.au for more detailed information Lover of SpamAssassin - high quality open-source spam killing for the masses!
