When I finish backlog of carbs, I'm going to make a hydraulic clutch conversion. ...  I picked up a sprocket cover and realised just how easy it would be to convert sprocket cover. for hydraulic piston. I'll have to make one and see if it's feasible, only needs about 1/8"~3/16" movement

Sign me up!  If you can make that work I want to be at the front of the line to buy one.

If it'll work on a CB450 I don't see why a 360 won't work.

I'm thinking something much 'cleaner' looking than that, inside the cover.

Just posted a quick video to You Tube, majority of carbs I get  are set toi 'over travel' so you only get about 3/4 to 7/8 actual throttle plate 'opening. I should have done the vid before I started taking carbs apart for cleaning but...............

Hey PJ, I just watched this vid as well as the one you did some years ago about syncing the carbs.  Dumb question:  Are these things part of what you do when we send carbs to you?  I'm assuming they are, but I never asked...  You did mine a while back and they've been sitting in a box waiting for me to get off my posterior and get the bike done.  Am I correct in assuming that I'll still have to fiddle some w/ them once things are all together and running or should they be pretty close as-is?  Thanx, Cory

Yep, it'sv just one of the things I check and re-set. Should be pretty close but will probably have to adjust fuel screws as they have to match what the motor wants.  I send them out at 1-1/2 turns so I know bike will start. Sometimes secondary main jets need changing. You got to get them on the bike and find out. Carb modifying is fun but often the cleaning involved kinda slows me down (no, it always slows me down, don't like doing it  ;D )

Thanx, Buddy.  I figured that, but I was a bit aggravated w/ myself for not asking in the past.  I have lots and lots of saddle time over the years, but in all honestly, not all that much wrench time, well not on bikes anyway.  The other day Levi said to me, "Before you put the engine back into the frame you are going to set the valves, aren't you?"  My answer was, "Ummmm..."  Guess I'd better look that up in the manual.

And as for the cleaning, it may not be enjoyable, but you did a beautiful job on mine, they look like new. (They look better than the rest of the engine. :(  )
