Welcome to the Saab Owners Club

Saabs @ Cadwell

 The 2015 National will be held at Cadwell Park in the glorious Lincolnshire Wolds from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 July, combining a Track Day on the Sunday with the usual festivities of our annual national event. It is appreciated that the date is earlier than usual, however members have been asking for an event where cars move and this is the closest date to the ‘normal’ date which we could secure

Follow this link for full details

The day is nearly upon us!  Could those who have booked the Track event please remember to bring both parts of their driving licence.  If you are new to trackdays visit the Cadwell Park site has some useful information.

Saab V4                       Lubrication of clutch release fork shaft

 

It has proved that the clutch release fork shaft, which is carried on a bearing in the clutch cover, shows a tendency for labouring in its upper bearing or even getting stuck – due to corrosion.  The result may be a slipping/damaged clutch.

 

When working on the clutch or visiting a service garage, add a few drops of oil.  At every 6,000 miles (10,000km) service inspection, lubricate the bearing with a few drops of oil.  The end surface of the shaft lies somewhat lower than the surface of the clutch case, and in consequence the oil will remain in place until the bearing has been lubricated.

  • Who was Erik Carlsson?

    Erik Carlsson

     

     

    Many new members to the Club ask the same question -  “Who is Erik Carlsson?”  I suppose a lot of people who were not around in the 60s have never heard of him even though this giant of a man is often referred to as “Mr SAAB”.

    Erik was born in 1929 in Trollhattan, Sweden, not far from the SAAB factory, but at that time the factory was only producing aircraft. Erik was 20 when production of the first SAAB cars started.  His first passion was motorbikes, he bought a Norton 500 new when he was 18 from Nystrom’s where he was working. Pelle Nystrom was the Norton importer for Sweden. At weekends he took part in hillclimbs, motorcross, road racing and, during the winter, ice track racing.

     
  • GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

    As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.
