  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I'm in the process of re-working my project car's vacuum lines. I've made other posts, but it appears that all I need is a single check valve, and I'm in business. But, for a few $$ more, I'm considering replacing these lines with some flexible silicone lines. In looking at the existing...
  2. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Ok, couldn't find this subject covered before on Saabscene, even by searching the threads, so just wanted a few opinions or to see if anyone has actually bothered to 'upgrade' to stainless steel brake lines. So, on a standard road car, are they worth it? Do they really add any extra 'firmness'...

    Hello all. After fitting the new leak off pipes all round, I would like to put an inline primer hand pump. However I don't know which line to put it on. The one with the Bike valve on it or the smaller one that appears to go straight to the pump. One has a blue fast fit connector and one a...
