How to drive a Saab two stroke, 2 stroke cross country

Tom Donney drives a two stroke Saab and explains how to use the "free wheeling" approach to help avoid melting pistons on a two stroke Saab. These engines were designed to run on 95 octane fuel or more. Today's lean ethonal or low octane regular fuels can be hard on your engine. If you travel from state to state your fuel choices vary greatly which can affect your jetting choices. (Just as altitude changes your jetting too). I have driven my 1961 Saab (and other pre-1960 Saabs) from Iowa to all points in USA. Even into Mexico (with my family of 5) and Canada. My way is just "a way", not the only way. NOTE: Non Saab people watch this and make comments like "too lean", "timing off" or "my two stroke runs all day at full throttle" All I can say is good for you and your car/motorcycle/airplane/what the hell ever. Come follow me across country in your vehicle anytime you want! :) Check out this youtube video named "black 93 2-stroke saab on Dyno" you can see this very Saab, which a few who seem to miss the point of this video and seem to think is "too lean" (850GT, 1st design triple carbs, oil Injected engine bored to 74mm) running on a Dyno and foggging for bugs. Just FYI, I also own a Mustang Chassis Dyno (have ran over 100 two stroke Dyno tests), and have a box of Saab jets that I bet cost more that the people who keep typing "it's too lean" paid for their 1st two cars! Plus I have had it and others fitted with AFR gauges...so "NO...IT IS NOT TOO LEAN" :) BTW Come to Dodge and we can take it, or other cool old Saabs for a spin. Safe Saab'in, tom donney

Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and vintage rally dude. On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to 850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex "Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs added) fully ported intake and Exhaust ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP" If money were no object, what vintage car (of any era) would you most want to race/rally?

Working view of 2 Stroke Opposed piston Engine
Saw this at the Mount Gambier show and had to share. Really appreciate the interest shown so far. Some good views of rockers and scavenge blower and a look in the inlet showing the piston working as the valve plus the injector shooting into a glass jar. As a kid I remember the sharp bark these engines made at full noise. Apologies to anoraks who want to know all the details but it was hard to hear the chap at the engine because of surrounding noise. The chugging noise you can hear is the vintage Ronaldson Tippett engine which is turning this engine over slowly so you can see how it works. Further notes: It is a 2 stroke cycle which fires every revolution and uses the piston on the inlet side to open and close the port and the piston on the Exhaust side to uncover the Exhaust at the appropriate time while the blower is not to supercharge but to "scavenge" the spent gases ( basically the air blows in the inlet and out the Exhaust at a slight pressure) For those interested in Aerodiesels, : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_diesel_engine Link to a running engine:: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrAoj5Cuu68





Saab Sonett two stroker testrun
Testrun of a Saab Sonett -67 that's been standing in a barn since 1978. My dad bought it back in 1968 and used it until 1978. It was standing in a barn but 2003 he finally decided to start it up again. The oiltank was a bit rusty and had to be replaced but otherwise everything was ok. Since then the waterpump have been rebuilt and new soccerball wheels have been fitted. Nowerdays dad uses it during the summer. It's a charming car with a lovely sound.
