Epoxy is a beautiful thing. My 360 is about 75% epoxy
It absolutely is. I have a lawn spreader, which got the leftover  epoxy from the headlight bucket. I swear there's more epoxy than original plastic in that old Scott's spreader.

Finally got the carbs back together last night. Been super busy with stuff around the house. Hopefully I can get this back running before I get sidetracked on other projects.

A co-worker of mine was a mechanic at a Yamaha dealer in a former life, and still does small engine repair on the side. After hurricane Sandy, he had so much work rebuilding lawnmowers, snowblowers, jetski's, etc that he invested in a good ultrasonic cleaner just to save time cleaning parts.

A-ha! Nice. I have made makeshift ultrasonic cleaners (with a handheld sander) before. They always work pretty well but there's no replacement for the real deal!

No pictures of them finished, but I cleaned the rust off the air boxes,  primed and spraypainted them flat black. 

Installed new throttle cable, and put the carbs back on, hooked everything up, just to realize the battery had gone dead. Battery is on the charger now.

After rebuilding the carbs and replacing the paper in the filters with uni foam, I haven't been able to get it to run right. It would idle, but it would die with any throttle. Tore down the carbs again last night to realize that I didn't replace the rubber plugs under the idle jet. And of course I have no idea what happened to them. Look like I'll be ordering a set.

While waiting for the passage plugs to arrive, I adjusted the valves, set the timing chain tension, and set the ignition timing. Rubber plugs came in, put the carbs back together, and last night she started up and ran great! Took for a quick ride around the neighborhood.

Brought her out of the garage and gave her a quick bath.
