If you've got this far then yes, Moriati's right. Do it.

Those numbers will rise in an engine that is warmed up, which is generally when a compression test is run. Yours still seems to be in the thrall of disuse. Smile

I just completely misread that as in 'how the hell can a compression test be inside a disused slave?'. Don't ask and yes, I am sober Very Happy Very Happy

You were probably recollecting Lars, the drill thrall. I won't ask why.  Smile

After reviewing how to adjust the valves, my Saab days flashed in front of me..79 900T.. loved the center console ignition near the handbrake.

Yes - Had 2 SAAB's in years gone by. Location of the ignition switch on the centre console was a departure from the then usual location of the switch on the side of the steering column. Reason: Safety. There had been many nasty leg injuries during a front on impact where the driver's leg was stabbed by the protruding keys from the switch.

fun fact there RRM..lol  Would seem if the impact is great enough to force keys into your leg, you will probably have greater issues to deal with,  but I imagine eliminating one source of bleeding would be helpful..

Valve clearances are all within tolerance.. Int. .15, .20, .15, .15  Ex. .25, .30, .25, .30

Reason: Distracted driving remedy. Saab was the first of automakers to limit distracted drivers from endangering others. Habitual smokers, pastry eaters and beverage drinkers discovered that the ignition switch wouldn't function with all the crud that accumulated in it.

Could be my wayward memory, but didn't the centre console switch function as a transmission interlock too? I seem to remember a car thief telling me that the key-in-the-centre-console made the car almost impossible to 'scaff-bar' (breaking off the ignition/steering lock by placing a short piece of scaffold bar over it) at a time when it was laughably easy to steal just about any car you wanted.
