Here we go - that's a nice looking Mahle piston!

Saab 96 V4 Rally – engine build part 1.

We finally got around to beginning the engine build on the 1969 Saab 96 Rally. So –  here’s some pretty basic stuff on installing the bearings and pistons:

Installing the camshaft bearings

Installing camshaft and balance shaft

Crankshaft

Installing the pistons

That’s how far we got today – let’s hope we can continue on the next weekend.

Oh – by the way – Tikkis is also rebuilding his race car. There’s a bunch of engine related posts on Saabworks.fi blog – check it out also.
