I see no one answered your question about neutral switch, you compress spring and washer, the wire has solder on the end and fits through a hole drilled in shaft, spring and washer hold it in place.

Matt I'm not sure at all haha... I plucked em from 80$ a pop off of ebay.

PJ! I had even forgot I still had this to deal with... I had even proceeded to bolt the cover on haha.
Okay so, that little Green looking wire from my stator should go in that tiny hole right? What exactly does that neutral switch do and do I need it? And is what you see in the pic all I need? there's a little paint on it, that i'll need to clean off.


Do these 360's need to be in neutral to start?

They have to be in neutral to kick start them, the clutch will disengage the kicker system from the rest of the engine. IF you are running idiot lights then yeah good idea to hook it up.

Neutral switch is a real simple grounding contact on end of gear change shift drum.
 Power goes from ign side , to bulb, from bulb to light green with red tracer.in neutral, the bulb is grounded so lights up.
 Kickstrt oes through transmission so it can't be started in gear

Ahhh okay, that's good news. I thought it was something more important.
Jumping on the wheels now, I'll wait for a few more components before i get into
wiring again.


Thankyou sirs

plug the bearing hole and fill up the drum with vinegar.  It will eat away at the rust.  Coke works pretty well too.  Guess I shouldn't have kept them outside huh?


Haha, they aren't to bad Matt, just a bit here and there... I'll try this.


I've been using the foil trick on the chrome/spokes, foil is my new Mr. Clean magic eraser.

Matt T, I tried your chemistry experiment and it did wonders.
Honestly, a bottle of Simple Green, Vinegar, a Tooth Brush, and some Tin Foil will take you far, it terms of cleaning things on a scoot.


Don't forget some denatured alchy! Keep things dry.

Babies all Dry..







The only thing I'm still struggling with is the Hubs... I may end up just cleaning the Rims/Spokes up, but if i could get inbetween the spoke flanges without tearing them down that would be nice. Simple Green is too simple for the hardend grime on the hubs. The chrome and Spokes are cake.


Any tips? Originally I was going to spray the Spokes and Hubs black.

If all you want to do is paint hub, roughing it up a bit with chemical cleaning then using an etch primer should be fine.
If you want something more ambitious, you'll have to dismantle wheels.
I did some major modifications to front and rear hubs
on one of my 360's
Rear


Front

Those Hubs looks insane sir!
It's amazing how much material you can remove from these things...
I was thinking about making a few holes in my front hub, not any big enough for much water/dirt to get into.
Do i need some heavy machinery for this or will a normal hand drill work?
