Funny there has been over the years many a heated discussion on the Society of Automotive Engineers about whether or not to hone a used cylinder when re ringing, The Jury is still out as they post up various real world oil consumption and power figures for both methods.

I work on the theory that if there is a wear lip that can break new rings do the rebore and plateau hone method to bring it back to the factory specifications and therefore only use a bottle brush flex hone for the plateau finish after a run through the sunnen machine to hone to size that gives increased lifespan over conventional honing

In Australia Mackay Rubber products based in Nowra NSW supply heater hoses engine mounts and a wide variety of rubber products for older cars like ours, I have used them for submersible fuel line that goes inside the fuel tank one of the few suppliers that have it.
Here is the link to their catalog pages.

I am surprised nobody noticed the Japanese number plate namely being just a simple and no doubt hard to get 210 the model designation

The original goldish color was actually not zinc plating but cadmium used as a sacrificial protective coating, Cadmium plating has gone the way of the Dodo due to environmental Nazi's and the modern replacement is Nickel plating which when polished resembles chrome and has a satin silver finish if unpolished that is what all modern bolts and nuts are done in.

Increased use of Nickel plating is probably why Clive Palmer wants to reopen his Townsville facility as an aside because increased use of nickel is becoming more common, You can even do nickel plating at home kits are available for about Au $160.00

Logic tells me that a vacuum advance unit should work the other way and actually retard timing when it sees positive boost pressure rather than vacuum therefore aiding in stopping detonation under boost whilst still giving more advance and better power on light throttle load as it was designed to do Z 18 turbos did something similar with their distributors

Also possibly a twin carb setup from a Subaru EA series engine could be from an EA63, an EA 71 or an EA 81 twin carb engine also

SSS Kiwi has the right idea in this thread Bike pistons when found will be lighter stronger and allow much higher revs with less load than most car sourced pistons.

I have used Honda XR500 Pistons in a L series 2.3 litre stroker rally engine and being so light they allowed that engine to rev about a 1000 RPM more than normal L series 2400's as people refer to them as, Most were not actually 2400cc more like 2290cc,Therefore check either Wossner or Wiseco catalogs for diameters but I do not believe they give crown heights in most cases but do give pin sizes so some research could be worthwhile

Better get the feeler gauges out not wise to trust the eyes especially when they are full of dust seeing as you poor bastards haven't seen much rain of late up there.

Better yet find a dwell meter and set them that way really cheap to buy these days as so few cars use points now search ebay good ones are a bargain second hand and most were made before China flooded us with cheap and nasty rubbish
