This early 1980s Saab was not running so great. Very lumpy idle, leaking exhaust manifold, blocked turbo and hesitating gas pedal.
The exhaust manifold was removed, cleaned up and new gaskets fitted. Also the studs were replaced as several were chewed up. The turbo was also removed, stripped and cleaned up, new gaskets here too.
The ignition system was overhauled, new distributor rotor, leads, coil and plugs and finally the ignition timing adjusted.
Result = a much happier car, idling nice and has it’s oooomph back!
