Title: CB360 carbs - again
Post by: crazypj on Apr 09, 2019, 18:48:58
Bought a new 'toy' tool to measure angles accurately, decided to use it on 360 linkage between carbs. Found out the ones I just did were about 30 degree variation between left and right carbs. I've been ajusting the angle for years but never had a way to check both were equal until now (I know, should have made a gauge years ago  ::) ) Anyway, couple of pics showing it on left and right carbs after adjustment. nIf your having issues getting carbs in sync it may be worth taking a look at link

I've taken some more measurements, no idea why I didn't think of it years ago but here it is for 745B carbs. The linkages are different lengths so can't be set parallel. Right carb (with adjuster screw) about 1" (25.4mm) centre of throttle shaft to centre of screw. Left carb, about 7/8" (22.?mm) to centre of 'U' shaped receiver.It means that the arms have to be at different angles to effectively 'shorten' the long arm and lengthen the short one. Itisn't really possible to open the 'U' shape more than 1/16" (1.5mm) but doing so does lessen the difference and make carbs operate MUCH smoother. I'm going to 'play' with a few more sets and see if I can come up with definitive angles so a checking gauge can be made.

Very interesting, I'm looking forward to you next posts on this, thanks.
