Subject: Re: 83 Saab 900S, replacing transmission seals?  how hard?

That makes sense. However, the vehicle has come and gone. and I'm looking at a couple that are actually in my hometown.. so we'll see. Curiosity question though dave... have you seen a SAAB 900 in the states that is a right-hand drive? Thanks for the help either way! -LC "Dave Hinz" <> wrote in message > On Sat, 16 Oct 2004 23:08:36 GMT, LC <> wrote: >> I've got a guy wanting to sell me an 83 saab 900 that's leaking out the >> passenger side transaxle output shaft.
