Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
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"

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
