As annoying as it is, you have to get them as soon as they post.  I got mine within 20 minutes of the listing being posted.

They never stopped CJ cam bearings failing so it's only needed if you don't ever check oil level plus park on side stand on highly cambered roads and leave bike idling for extended period. It would probably be easier to weld over the original pick up and extend it into center of case or even just make a complete new pick up?

I have a spare CB pickup, so I may take that up and make a modified one. I am meticulous about checking proper level and change intervals because I know how important that is to engine life for anything (plus being a former Marine has taught me that equipment maintenance is key to survival)

Iím a little jubious that the pickup will be genuine CJ..... lets see what turns up!

Meantime iíve done the oil mods, and taken the pistons and barells to the shop 😀

Also contacted CopperGaskets to line them up for base and head.

Iím awaiting a gasket kit and viton valve seals, the ones in the old kit i have seem crap, then i think iím ready to assemble.

Will post pics when stuff arrives.

Well the ĎNOS CJ360 Oil Pickupí arrived, and yes itís genuinely not the same as the CB360 one, and looking unised and a bit rusty!

I shall clean it up and install.

With the pressure relief mod, clean oil pump, drilled clutch basket and oil ways drilled out to 2.5mm ( they were 2mm) i think im ready to button up the right case?

Sounds like it, you got the heavy duty clutch springs in there?
