I see what you're trying to say, but you're wrong. Sorry. Simple as that! The B type is so far removed from the Triumph engine, that it might as well be a new design. The H type is, again, a world away from the B type. Okay, the 8V H type bears a number of similarities to the B type, but it is still distinctly different. I know that H type knowledge can be translated to assist a B type owner, but it's still "on the H type, I'd do this ... Your B type may be different". You're on a loser, mate :) The H type is "pure SAAB' ... Simple as that! I have one of the last of the 8V H types, which is the real essence of classic 900 motoring ... 16V? Pah! Just to start another fun flame war :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
