Well its been awhile. After talking it over, friends and I have decided to do the Gambler 500 next year. We were trying to figure out what car to bring, and it was simple. Get the 210 back on the road. And then we decided, we can do more than just the Gambler 500 with it.

Anyways, we got the motor over to my place yesterday. Assessed everything. Had to clean a bunch of surface rust off parts. We had left off with an assembled short block.

We quickly dissembled the head to replace the valve stem seals, and also to lap the valves a bit (all valves look super nice now with lots of sealing surface). Cleaned up the mating surfaces on the motor/head. Reassembled the head, torqued the head down, and set cold valve lash.

So our goal is to get the motor back in the car, and get it moving. Then we will start looking at suspension mods.

This was April 2013. You can see my wagon in the background of one of the photos.

Anyways, in honor of RedBanner, I have made a Cockoff plate for the car. Its to cover the EGR holes in the intake.

The car is straight. Clean title blah blah. But it has been the first car for 3 teenagers. Most recently it went into a ditch and bent the metal flange around the output of the tranny.

Blue interior. Friends sister got a fixit ticket for the seatbelt. Found a 210 in the junkyard that day and scored the black drivers belt for it.

Other than that, the head was gone through pre 08, and the owner of ACME Adapters installed the Weber at the same time. Its a car that has received minimal attention its life, just not done a lot either.

Sounds like a really solid start. I've seen somewhere that you can mill the h72 head .080 and weld the quench up a bit. It's supposed to make it as good or better than an h89. When I run across the write up I'll send you the link. A home port match should help for high rpm too.

You think it'll be ready for the November gambler?

Well the friend that owns the car basically said no to the Winter one (too busy or something like that).

But it would seem the whole gang is enthusiastic about getting this going.

But actually did something this weekend.

EGR pipe at exhaust is welded.

Cockoff finally bolted on.

At some point I threw new plugs and a new thermostat in it. A new clutch is on order. Im thinking we need to find a new transmission....
