Saab engine to rear manual

Ok Tony I just got a call back from my buddy Bob, he said since the Saab uses a ZF trans and so does BMW and Audi you may be able to use one of these for your application but...

Not without some type of adapter, as far as he knows.

He suggested checking out Kenndy Engineering Products.

They specialize in VW Audi products and adapters.

He also stated that Saab probably only sold 10,000 of these 9000s a year in the USA so if you don't already have one, well you know.

Bob says the 9000 and the 900 Saab are the same engine basically, different mounting, bell housing configurations, etc.

I hope this info is of some benefit to you. Dana

Crosley when I get back to the shop tomorrow I will check with a friend of mine about this.

That crazy fool works on a lot of saabs, and other weird cars, I might add.

I will post, what I find out.

Crosley thanks................

if you read my OE post... a manual trans is what is searched for,

found a few more ideas from some Aussie fellows.

Saab engine to a RWD setup?

why would you?
them engines build up sludge in crankcase bad ,but that because the exhaust runs close to oil pan ,but i guess you can reroute it and prevent that from occurring.
will this be a automatic or standard trans you want to apply?
input on trans will be a problem for you .
a auto would be easier to do .
a 1/4 inch plate of steal for making a trans plate adapter ,
then a small enough trans like a 4 cylinder ford ranger to have small enough bell housing maybe .
you got to use the hole kitt and caboodle .
so do you want kitt with your caboodle as the commercial says for com-cast?

good luck
