I just bought one on eBay ;)

I think I did too, but we will see when it gets here. I've got a friend in town so the bike is just sitting in pieces in a very messy garage. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

I also found out that I've got the CJ360 air boxes on this one. Dunno if the P.O. swapped them or if the bike came that way. Second question, does anyone know if the part numbers for all of the 77s are all going to go away at the end of the year? If so I need to figure out how to download the parts pages for the '77 CJ360 before that happens. I'm also guessing that some place has the older part numbers archived that I don't know about?

Anyway, just realized that my current way of tracking down part numbers is going to go sideways in 2018

If you see me f**cking up it's because I have no idea what I'm doing. You can either tell me I'm fucking up or watch me find out on my own. Both are appreciated.

I've got one, too... for all the difference it makes.  My understanding is that the reason Honda made the change from the CB/CL pickup to the CJ style is to prevent oil starvation if the thing is left idling, on the side stand, when it's down a little on oil.  However, like I said, I have one; had the opportunity to get it while I had the engine apart so I figured "what the heck" and made the change.  From what I've read, the original is up to the task as long as you keep your oil level where it should be.  Bottom line: I had the chance to get one so I did, but I wouldn't be losing any sleep if I didn't have it.

I mean, I just bought one.  You can still get them, but you have to keep up with eBay.  They show up, but then go quickly because they're sought after.  I bought mine within 20 minutes of it being listed.

So, the thing I picked up on ebay was for the CB/CL - nothing fancy like IRK found on the webz. I also managed to isolate my points cover using heat shrink around the bolts, o rings at the heads and two gaskets. No more points grounding on teh cover for this cat.

I also vented the cover so that I won't demag another Charlies Place ignition. For now I'm just fuxing with points until I can be sure it isn't running hotter than normal.

I think the clutch issue was due to the clutch lever. That's really too bad. I have two of those brass knuckle bad boys. I was going to try to sell them to make the money buy another round of brass stock. i guess I could grind off the lever and just have a pair of brass knuckles, but I don't want/need those and don't think I can sell them legally as weapons.

Tomorrow is my no-screen day(mon/wed), so I should have some time to get back to putting all the appropriate pieces in place. I also have to try to build a jig for these Chinese take out planters that I've been thinking about, but I'd also like to see this thing fire up again if I can swing it. I signed up for a motorcycle rider course to ease my wife's concern on riding regularly. I keep pushing the course date back due to a bike that isn't reliable enough to get to the track. Making those calls every 3 weeks to reschedule seem to be good enough motivation that it won't likely sit for another 3 years again this time.

Just paint the inside of the cover with liquid electrical tape...

Ok. Bike runs great. I basically just had to take all the pieces scattered across the floor and put them back onto the bike. Pretty simple, really.

The points didn’t work for shit (which was a bit of a blessing) they weren’t conducting through their contact surfaces. I tried dragging paper and even pulling an emery board through there and nothing. No idea. Gapped and timed correctly. No spark. While trying to track that situation down I pulled the clutch cover, cleaned the oil centrifuge, found that the pump filter screen had a hole in it, and replaced everything that looked like it could use a bit of love.

The clutch not working was 100% improper adjustment due to a weirdly lengthens clutch cable. I sliced a bit of housing off and now have something that is within the adjustable range. The brass knuckle lever works fine. My only concern is that the clutch doesn’t really slip that much. Bike is hard to roll with the clutch fully disengaged. Anyone?

Charlie’s place sent out a new magnet for the ignition. Damn I love that ignition. I hope it can handle the Arizona summers. Hogging out the points cover should help. Maybe I just leave it off in the summer. Maybe I can put my own damn replacement magnets in it when it fails. Maybe the bike isn’t overheating anymore. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I totally biffed the gasket install and have another on the way. I tore the shot out of that gasket In try me to install it. Oh well.

Lastly the dual relays didn’t quite cut it. I’ve got a single relay with two throws that might do thee trick. For now I’m just going to ride the sucker and tear into the blown head (fingers crossed) on the Ascot.

It only took me 8 years to get this thing running

Congrats on have a runner. Good feeling. :)

For the quoted section, that's not an uncommon problem to have. It should (mostly) go away when the engine warms up. If not, you may have a little more adjustment to do.
