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....

Another step forward. Motor is in! And nearly everything is connected. Just crank case vent and clamps for the lower radiator hose, air filter and consumables. I wanted to fire it today, but with it being memorial day and the two closest parts stores not open, no go. Soon though.

We were supposed to have worked on it today. I really wanted to actually go romp around the farm in it. But my friend/owner of car/son of property owner where car is kept completely forgot about the plan for today and went for a hike elsewhere.

But I did pull some MR2 seats out of Hibernation. The Drivers seat is a little worn but in great shape otherwise. The passenger seat, well it has some stains that will needs extra cleaning. So the MR2 seats are about 18 inches on center to center for the seat rails and the 210 is 15 1/8th. That was significant enough to warrant more drastic measures.

Since the MR2 seats have sliders integral to the frame, No point in disabling them, also the lock on both sliders, unlike the 210 sliders. So the plan is to just weld the 210 sliders solid in the middle, then weld the MR2 seats to them (my 510 was done this way by the PO). But like I said the MR2 sliders are further apart...

I should also add. Lifting this car may not happen. We realized after dropping the motor in, the car has ridiculous ground clearance stock. If we actually do Oregon Rally events we dont want it any higher as alot of it is just AutoX on dirt. But thats awesome that its already tall enough. Less work!

Yea dude sunny’s Have great ground clearance. My B210 could go over curbs before I put the new struts in if I really felt like it. Bigger tires would probably fit and probably get you even more ground clearance.
