Saab 96 V4 Rally – Engine build moving forward Tommi Järvinen 22.3.2015, 21:54 Saab 96 V4 Rally 1969 We managed to get the valve mechanisms on the Saab 96 V4 Rally done the past weekend. Also the intake manifold and throttle linkages are now done. A few photos: The valve mechanism ready for action. Time to put in the intake manifold and carburetors. And the intake and carburetors done. The next job was fitting the throttle linkage. Making a new support fot the throttle lever. A little paint to make it nice. There we go – throttle lever installed. Between the carburetors we used the linkage that came with the carburetors. Not pretty but they were already nicely synchronized. Saab 96 V4 Rally – starting to look like an engine.

I would love to find the intake and carb setup you have, over here in the USA. guess I need to talk to the right people. Keep up the great work, and am looking forward to your next post.

I’m now convinced Saab should be reborn with the 96! saabyurk 27.4.2015 at 15:28 6 years ago Reply Wow Tommi! You are such a master with these Saabs. I think I will use this site as a great reference on the proper way to do things. Thanks for sharing so much detail! Tommi Järvinen 27.4.2015 at 16:34 6 years ago Reply Thanks for the comments! But, looking at your project I think you are doing nice work yourself! Welding is the most tedious part of any restoration project, but doing it properly is very rewarding.

From your pictures and description of work, you are a master rebuilder, and it shows in your work and in the details of great workmanship. Looking forward to your next post.
