Re: v-4 vs 2 stroke 3cyl - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I owned and rebuilt a 2-cycle, replacing a siezed engine w an oil-injected one. Oil injection is better because it’s easier and mixture is reliable, once setup. The car is a blast, feeling fast because of the engine sound, and handling is great in context, because of lighter engine.
Since new, I’ve owned a ‘73 V-4. Great torque curve for what it is. Reliable! Comfortable, and the wind deflectors (upper rear of window openings) really work. The only repeating problem I had was the Fomoco carburetor. Right now, the car is off the road. For its era, rust prevention was very good.
