I’m posting this to help out a friend of a friend.
You all know Ivan, who designs and sells a rather groovy range of Saab T-shirts (free shipping for orders over $25 at the moment in the US!!). Ivan has a friend in Hungary who owns this vintage Saab 96, which I think we’ll all agree looks pretty darn special.
This Saab 96 has a gearbox problem and Ivan’s asked me to ask you for help. I know most of the visitors to this site drive more modern Saabs, but there’s also a few old-timers out there and maybe you can be of assistance.
From Ivan’s email to me:
Unfortunately, he’s having some problems with the gearbox and the clutch. He has already changed the bearings of the clutch but he needs some more parts, which seem almost impossible to buy in Hungary.
He needs the syncronmesh for gears 3 and 4 and the input/output pair of the gear 4. Please, does anybody have any idea how can he get those parts?
I’ve already referred them Svenska Saabklubben and as soon as I figure out how, I’ll also lodge an email on the VSAAB mailout.
