I have not moved the coil it has been there since I owned it
I got the engine torn down earlier today. The piston & tings will definitely need replacement. The connecting rod and crank shaft is reusable. The cylinder bore is good enough to use a standard size piston.

I have a 216 where the rear motor mounts got so bad they wore through the half moon mount area on the frame. That was a tricky repair. All good now, but ya motor mounts are everything and one of the first things to do on that series 👍🏻👍🏻

I am only 13 and the rebuilt kit took a significant bite out of the budget. I really want to replace them while it is easy but, alas I am too broke. I will probably end up replacing them at a later date.

What? 13? As in 13 years old? I'm guessing you might be the youngest member?

Isolators can be bought from someone other than mother Deere. Can definitely save some coins. So much easier while motor is out of machine.

I got mine on the auction site for about $8-$9 each, and free shipping. Also available thru McMaster Carr.
I would think sow blades would be common CL items in your part of the world...the frozen north country. With a blade, your 210 can earn its keep and then some in winter.

I appreciate to see young folks getting into this hobby... I'm a young'n too, older than you but not by too much... Such a shame most young people couldn't care less about these old machines. It makes me very happy to see other young folks doing this stuff! I wish you good luck with your rebuild and I will be following along (y)
