AS a long-time C900 fan I kind of ignored all the hype and fervour around the Viggen all these years. Then, one fell into my lap, and as any Viggen owner knows, they are pretty special. So now I'm asking myself, how far will I go to keep this car? I did a complete rebuild of a C900 Turbo motor and a complete running gear restoration to build my C900TC which I am very proud of and enjoy driving.
My question now is, of the Viggen owners still present on this board, how far did you go to keep your Viggen going, as opposed to sending it to the crusher or selling it? I mean if you blew a piston, or a bearing , or some other catastrophic failure.
the reason I'm asking is that I am already preparing myself for the day where I have to make that decision, and I want to be in a position to keep the car rather than say bye-bye. the more I can learn about the car's weak points and what can be done to avoid failure, the longer I can put off that day. Also, if I can learn about my options (ie engine swap from another car, rebuilt transmission from ?) I will be much better prepared.
Thanks in advance,
sorry for the length,
