  1. I prefer the square eye grill, but round is growing on me. Wish it was a stick. It's an Auto, A15. Got the head back last night, it was 7/1000's off in 1 place. It's looking fresh and almost ready to drop. Blocks next and parts were ordered today.
  2. It popped up the day after I got mine and I was in the same town too, still don't regret it. Should be a great dats for someone.
  3. Progress: Currently I've got the block taken apart and am going to do a semi-rebuild. New gaskets all round, rings, bearings. Clean up and freshen up block with a coat of paint. Trans will end up with just the pan gasket and driveshaft seal. Carby looks like it was replaced or rebuilt sometime which is great. Interior is in great shape so nothing there for now. First 210 that has water tight seals! Hoping to get er done before canby... uh, I mean Powerland. List of things not, not to do: Fuel tank/ delivery system cleaning. Complete suspension rubbers/ complete breaking system. Emissions exhaust leak. TIRES!!! Motor-reassembly (soon).
  4. I apologize for leaving ya hanging. My og flickr used for Yoko isn't accessible, so I created a fresh one. The process is slow but here's some.
  5. What, another 210?! jəkZ? I like to name em. But why!!!! This will surely end up with random chatter and many pics or at least I hope, as we endeavor into the mystery within. Back Story: Scrolling though CL I saw a post for a 210 wagon. Said it previously ran and timing rattled so he tore into it but never finished. It sat and well ended up on CL of course, as projects usually do. Sounds good to me. It's local enough (7hrs round trip) and I haven't yet, owned the wagon variant. Just the others on the line up so this will be awesome. Contacted owner and arranged I'd pick er up asap. Which ended up being the next day, all day driving. Ya'll probably know the hassle of Uhaul, but I'll leave that for another post. Next Day (Arrival Day): Left early that morning only to arrive close to 8 that night. There she was, in the garage full of cobwebs and dust. From what I saw and was able to get as info goes it originally came from Nevada. It is extremely "rust free". Much more that other's I've worked on/owned. Loaded with tons of goodies in the hatch. Federal emissions... We'll leave that for another post real soon as we dive into smog. Loaded er up and off we went into the night. From here on it's in my possession: Next day got er all back together. Fresh tune up and new fluids. Course not without problems. It was a sprinkler, coolant coming out the wazoo! She ran, idled and even drove round the block after sitting 4+yrs. As I investigated the leaks origin I noticed the oil had some white color. Darn. We'll it looks like some gaskets shot. Course this is a first since A-series tend to be extremely reliable and dry. The adventures begun tho. This will be updated... I just don't know when...
  6. The other reason I did so was b/c I've got another 210 with the deeper yellow color that I wanted. There's a pic posted earlier in this blog if memory serves... I've got an L-series ready to drop once I get the correct cross-member. That's a story for another day.
  7. Yup. Funds are going into the future camper.
  8. Yoko's onto new ownership and a new journey. New owner is informed of the blog, maybe he'll continue this? I hope so. Only time will tell. She's now in the Cameron Park area by Sacramento. P12584 by cad lab, on Flickr P32424 by cad lab, on Flickr This concludes my ownership and the end of an era, so to speak. Thank you for your support and criticism. P.S. I'm not leaving, I'll still be around.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    I'd imagine it's too long an engine to fit without cutting firewall, etc. L16/L18/L20b do fit with minimal work I've seen. KA/SR do as well.
  11. I've bought myself an infamous 87 vanette. Don't think I'll post on it yet since I haven't picked it up. Saw the posting come up on CL and didn't hesitate. I've got an issue, I get it. When was the last time you've seen one? I sure as hell have never. Anyway, b/c I've got another 210 and now a van I've decided to let Yoko go. I prefer someone else daily er than let er sit. So we'll see how this goes.

    Heater control valve opened up nicely. No issue there. It's just to clean out debris like leafs.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    Man I'd dig A/C but don't want to molest er. So... I'll keep my sauna instead. Still awesome! Question: I'm currently dealing with getting the heater working. Do you know if the dash has to be removed for the entire heater assembly to be taken out for diagnosis?
  14. P.S. Stalling Resolved. 1k miles, couple fuel'ups and I can say I've finally fixed the stalling issue. Not the carb. Not the fuel system. The only things I've done was replace ALT and clean the contacts on the distributor coil. As weird as it sounds it's been running way better. Hope that helps someone.
