Morris Cooper S vs. Saab 96 V4 Rally
Twee doodnormale auto's zetten in de jaren zestig de internationale
rallywereld op zijn kop. Want tot ieders verbazing bleken Saab en Mini in
de wieg gelegd
voor de rallysport. En de Mini Cooper S viert dit jaar ook nog eens zijn
vijftigste verjaardag op Goodwood. Hij werd immers geboren in 1963,
hetzelfde jaar dat Saab voor de tweede keer op rij de Rally van Monte Carlo
op zijn naam schreef.

Saab 93 Sports Gear tower repair kit instructions
A short demonstration carried out by a technician at 2 Stroke, on how to
apply your gear tower repair kit, to your Saab 93 Sports gear tower.
1) Step one is to check your kit. You will need the following things:
- Sealed disposable counter sink / Drill bit (supplied)
- Puller nut, bolt & washer (supplied)
- PTFE self-lubricating, high quality bearing (supplied)
- High Torrance steel bolt (with nylock nut) (supplied)
- Punch, and Abrasive cloth holder (supplied)
- Abrasive cloth (supplied)
- Knife / flat screw driver (supplied if available at time of order)
- Protective plastic bag (supplied)
- 17mm spanner / socket x 2
- 10mm spanner / socket
- Clean working area.
2) As soon as your gear tower is removed from the vehicle, you should use a
cable tie to secure the plastic bag around the shaft of the tower, to
prevent any dirt getting into the mechanism.
3) It's time to drill out the original seized pivot bearing.
Fit the counter sink supplied into your drill and slowly work away at the
This will take 5 - 10 minutes. It's important that you don't apply to much
pressure at this stage, or set the drill at super high speeds, all this
will achieve is burning away at the counter sink. It is designed to slowly
work though the original bearing so no damage is caused to any other part
of the tower.
If you have workshop facilities then a small angle grinder can also be
4) Once the end has been drilled through, take your metal punch, and your
hammer, and knock the bearing out. Once it has been knocked through, the
attached swinging arm can be temporarily pulled away and removed from the
5) Using a small knife, and / or a small flat head screw driver, you now
need to remove the plastic sleeve on the inside of the hole where the
The best way to do this, is to score up the inside using a sharp razor, and
then to pry at the end of the sleeve with your screw driver. This should
break away and come out, leaving a relatively smooth metal surface
6) Place your metal punch into your drill, and attach the abrasive cloth
into the grove. Work this in and out of the hole, cleaning the surface of
all swarf and dirt. Don't rush this part as the more time is spent cleaning
this, the better.
7) Once cleaned, you need to fit the new PTFE Bearing.
Apply a little grease to both the bearing, and the channel for the bearing
to go into.
Put the 17mm bolt through the hole, and put the PTFE bearing over the
Put the washer against the bearing, and then put on the nut, and hand
tighten to secure.
Using your 2 x 17mm spanners / sockets, continue to tighten the nut, slowly
using it to pull the new bearing into place.
8) Once in place, undo the nut and remove the bolt & washer.
The new bearing is now in place.
9) Put the pivoting arm back into place. Fit the high tolerance smooth
bolt through the bearing, again applying grease as you do this and secure
into place with the nylock nut supplied. Tighten this appropriately.
The gear tower is now overhauled, and should move smoothly throughout the
gears when fitted back into your car.

Are you afraid of the SAAB?
This video is really old, we've got the girl racin! Here's footage from
From www.thecarbeque.com We've worked out all the major problems with our
$400 SAAB, installed a set of EBC race brakes, put on the race Exhaust and the next step will be all the safety
equipment. We will be going to Alston Race Cars in Antioch to get the snow
leopard (our internal codename for the carbeque) measured for the roll
cage. They do amazing work. In the meantime we will begin to devise our
cooker box that'll turn the 900 into a real Carbeque. Until then, enjoy!
