'92 900 needs new tranny

Viesti Kirjoittaja mbolli »

Hey guys

After Vesa from VnDyno took a look under my engine cover (thanks again!), it was clear that the transmission's cracked. It still changed gears without problems though.
So I drove home (ca. 5 kms), but after 3 kms I heard the gears singing, and when I had to stop for a red light, and tried to accelerate after, it was just ugly. You know the sound. Front axle's blocked, had to call a towing service. F***! :cry:
So anyone got a spare transmission lying around? :| In Ostrobothnia?

Thanks,
Michael

Can't remember now what "purkamo" is in English, but let's just say it is a place where cars go to die :) That is: they are disassembled and usable parts are sold.

Hernesmaan purkamo are specialized in Saabs: http://www.hernesmaanautojaosa.net/ so I would expect that they should be able to help you.

In other words, a scrapyard. :wink:

Thanks guys! They have 3 gearboxes. Which one should I take? _1_ _2_ _3_ In doubt the most expensive one? :wink:

I'm not that familiar with OG900, but I would imagine that the 2.1 16V version gear ratios would be most similar to your old gearbox. The 8 valve carburated version probably had a lot shorter ratios.

You might also want to check with Veljekset Mäntykorpi in Kokkola. Their pricing was far more reasonable for a part I happened to need a while ago, but I don't know if they're cheaper in general. Anyway, it doesn't hurt to ask. They're probably a bit closer to you, too.

Thanks guys! The primary gearing doesn't matter, as I will take the type-8 over I installed just 2 month ago.
It would actually be great to have the long diff with the type 8 primary 8)
I will also check out Veljekset Mäntykorpi then.
