Subject: Saab Mechanics: A Hypothetical Question

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- I have a hypothetical question regarding the servicing of the new variable compression ratio engine. I grant that the cylinders on a Saab 4 cylinder engine are very hard and wear very slowly. However, how often do you mechanics have to use a ridge cutter to remove a piston from a four cylinder engine? It seems to me that the one piece head and block of the variable compression engine would effectively prohibit the use of a ridge cutter should it be necessary. The wear ridge at the bottom of the cylinder is generally less sharp than that at the top of the cylinder, but can you slide a piston out the bottom without damaging it? I'm just wondering if the Saab engineers are creating a mechanical marval as well as a mechanic's nightmare.
