Re: Head gasket time approaches.... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Get a Saab friend to help you with this job.
Just changing a 9000 head gasket and putting it back again with moderate selection of tools two of us did it in an afternoon. Would go much faster with power tools. Only real obstacle is the exhaust manifold bolts, either try to remove them with the engine still warm, or you can remove the turbo mounting bolts below the exhaust manifold and just leave it on. If there are two of you can also leave the intake manifold on as well, disconnecting easier to access parts as the lower intake bolts are hard without good tools.
