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

Will it Run? Episode 14: 1978 Saab 99 Part 1 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to have a go at getting this '78 Saab running! It's been sitting around for over 15 years... I bought it last year, and last month I decided that I would try to get it operational and maybe even plate it and use it for a daily driver. Well, it needs a lot of work... the fuel pump, lines, and accumulator are all shot, the heater is leaky and smells terrible, the wiring harness is burned up, and the roof and deck lid are peeling and rusty. Also, someone took a lot of the car apart years ago and never put it back together! The Exhaust is leaking badly, and the wheels and tires are mismatched. Well, the budget is still zero, so we'd better get busy!
