Thanks ridesolo. I'll try lying the bike on its side to get the motor out. great suggestion. I found this site where one can download manuals. http://www.common-motor.com/manuals. I really appreciate the info on the engine, too. I wasn't sure how far to tear it down.

I found that I can lift the entire motor in and out of the 360 by myself from the right side with the bike on it's side stand. ( I think the service manual illustrates it that way too.) It's just manageable for me. And I'm not a big dude.

Hear ya on that one, but my 60 year old back doesn't want to pick that lump up and would let me know it's displeasure if I tried.   :D

So I laid the bike on its right side but still can't get the motor out from the mounting tabs. I removed the cover on the top of the motor to give it a little more wiggle room. I tried taking the starter off but those screws are not budging and found on this site that I needed to order special JIS screwdrivers so those are on the way. It just seems like there isn't enough room to get motor out away from the mounting tabs for clearance.

I finally figured out that I had missed removing this little bracket

Got a picture or two?  That might help.  At the bottom of the engine on the right hand side there is a mount that bolts to the engine and that mount itself bolts to the frame.  This mount has to come off before taking out the engine.  Look at the bottom of the frame and if that bolt is still there it'll have to be removed.  At the back of the engine, below the carbs, is another set of mounts and the one on the right side also needs to be unbolted from the frame.  Hopefully getting these apart will take  care of it for you.

This seems like a really good deal on a brand new gas tank. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331675971228?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Has anyone else bought this tank before? opinions? would this look good on my CL360? or would it be too small?
I'm afraid of my tank, it has a flaking white coating on the inside and I've read about different ways to get it out, just not sure it's worth it.

Ha ha.  No problem.  Keep on keepin' on, everybody here stared out at the beginning.  Lots of good info here.
