Re: POWER STEERING

TR7 Steering effort seems to be related to the caster angle...those with positive caster tend to have heavier steering than those with 0 caster angle. I think this is why we get varying results from fitting needle-roller swivel bearings...some report a big improvement, while others say there is litt...

Re: One of those days when you think you are winning.....

When you see the wiring under the dash, it's no surprise that things stop working.

Re: POWER STEERING

I used a Subaru "L" Series, 1979-1984 PAS rack, Volvo 240 Tie-rods and Ford pump on my last TR7, and it drove well. I'm adapting a Barina (Corsa) electric system for my current project, as the Subaru ones are extinct in this part of the world. The Corsa processor has 3 maps for different s...

The longitudinal member that supports the seat is meant to be welded to the bulkhead
to absorb the thrust of the trailing arms when accelerating.

Re: Oxygen-Sensor TR7 FI-engine

It will most likely be a single or 2 wire narrow band sensor that outputs between .1 and .9 volts. If it has 2 wires, the white one is normally the signal, and the black one is ground. A narrow band sensor only indicates that the AFR is over or under 14.7:1. The most commonly used thread is 18X1.5, ...

Re: Engine Rebuild Advice

More of our engines have been destroyed by that water pump than anything else. It was a flawed notion from the outset, designing a cooling system that had low and high pressure points in the block. It was located where it is in the first place because SAAB wanted to use the engine in a FWD car, so t...

Replace it with an EWP...one of the best things you can do to these motors.

Re: Wheel Vibration (with a twist)

Have you checked the uni-joints in the steering rod.
Play in these joints can result in a wheel-wobble in the straight-ahead position which
disappears when you turn the wheel.

Re: head removal

Some people have had success by turning the engine to BDC on No.1 Cylinder, filling the cylinder with Rope, turning the engine to compress the rope and lift the head, then repeating on No.4 Cylinder. If you are using double (lock) nuts on the studs, try turning them clockwise first, then anti-clockw...

Re: head removal

Vinegar is better than penetrating oil.
It dissolves the oxide that has built up between the steel studs and alloy head.

Re: Engine Rebuild Advice

If you pull it down, you will have to replace the bearings. Once they are "crushed" into place, they will never seat correctly again, and will have a very short life. As Phil said, get the oil pressure up first. If you remove the distributor, the oil pump drive can be accessed. It's a Hexa...

Re: Cylinder head sequence

Is the oil turning creamy from the water...300ml is a fair amount considering the low mileage you do. The oil level should be increasing with that much water being added. Are you sure it's going into the oil, and not a faulty cap etc. If you decide to remove the head, do NOT spray WD40 or any other ...
