    Bought a 64 Saab 96 over the weekend...

    Over the weekend I bought a mostly complete non-running 64 96. After some tinkering and using one of my XT600 motorcycle fuel tanks to gravity feed the carb, I got it to spit and sputter to life!!! I couldn't find reverse so we had to push it out of the yard backwards and I drove it to the end of the street an back. It didn't run well, as expect for a car that has been sitting since 1976... I started tearing down the motor and #2 piston is melted, I've read this is common? I have since pull the motor out split the case and pulled off the number two piston. I dropped the block and head off at the machine shop to get clean up this morning. I've been looking for a replacement piston BUT here's my issue... everything I am reading states that the bore should be 70mm but what I am measuring is 66.75mm. What do I have and who has a piston??? I'm already in love with this little car!

    I can't help you with your specific question about the bore and piston size but would like to hear and see more about this vintage Saab.
