Cool, at first I thought you painted on oil gushing out (it's just the way my mind works  ;D )
 I like the red/Black better than all red  8)
I wont take any offense at all by that mistake.  Cause I can see that also.  Like I said earlier, I am not a pro flame painter.  It does look a bit like the black is dripping down the sides.
Also, I did the first chop after the engine build...getting lean at 6000.  So, that gives me a project today.

I'm not into brats at all and I couldn't stop myself from reading your build. You have done a fantastic job. The engine over haul was entertaining to say the least. It would scare me to take on something like that as a "learning experience."

The red engine was a little over the top, by no means am I shooting down what it was. It is intriguing to see a truly different bike among these cafe/brats/bobbers. The new flames are great though. Still has that unique feel and it has good contrast.

Keep up the great work and try not to let the bike rot in the lawn like the weed eater.  ;)

Thanks Stogz,  I would never have successfully completed the engine build without the help of my fellow DTTers.  They are nothing less than a wonderful grouping of info, knowledge and entertainment.  A guy needs that to keep his spirits up when things get frustrating.
My bike is very lucky we live in Illinois.  You have no idea how many times and how close Ive been to rolling this thing off a cliff...The only thing that stops me...In Illinois we have no cliffs.

Re: 76 CB360, Stainless hardware + aluminum engine = thread sealant
« Reply #523 on: Nov 06, 2012, 08:07:33 »
When installing Stainless hardware to assemble your engine.

If nothing else, do not neglect to use a thread sealer w the stainless hardware.  S/S and aluminum dont play well together.  that combo is the first and worst about galling.  I use real-tuff thread sealant.  you can get an 8oz bottle (lifetime supply) just about any plumbing supply, its good to + 550 degrees,  Versus a tiny tube of permatex 59214 high temp sealant (auto parts store) is only good to 400 degrees and costs about the same and probably wont be enough to do your whole bolt kit.  And when using thread sealant be sure to torque everything to the lower torque values given in the honda workshop manual.  lower torque value = lubricated fit, higher = dry fit.



Here is the entire article,  I pasted the important stuff below.
http://www.fastenal.com/content/feds/pdf/Article%20-%20Galling.pdf

Galling
Thread Galling
Thread galling is a common, yet seldom understood problem with threaded fasteners. Galling, often referred to as a cold-welding process, can occur when the surfaces of male and female threads are placed under heavy pressure. The frustrating aspect of fastener galling is that galled nuts and bolts may pass all required inspections (threads, material, mechanical, etc.), yet they still fail to function together.
Stainless steel fasteners are particularly susceptible to thread galling, although it also occurs in other alloys that self-generate an oxide surface film, such as aluminum and titanium. During the tightening of the fastener, pressure builds between the contacting thread surfaces and breaks down the protective oxide coatings. With the absence of the oxide coating, the metal high points of the threads are exposed to one another, which increases friction. The combination of these two events can generate enough heat to fuse and seize the nut and bolt together.
Minor galling may cause only slight damage to the thread surface and the installer may still be able to remove the fastener. However, in severe cases galling can completely weld the nut and bolt together and prevent removal of the fastener. If the tightening process is continued once galling begins, the fastener may be twisted off or have its threads stripped.
Unfortunately, even with an understanding of the mechanism of galling, little is known on how to successfully control it. However, galling can be minimized with the following measures:
ē   Thread lubrication is one of the most effective measures to decrease the potential for galling. The lubricant reduces friction, which is a key element in thread galling. Certain environments preclude the use of some lubricants (such as stainless steel fasteners used in food processing equipment). Also, the operator must be aware that the torque-tension relationship will be altered with the use of lubrication.

Again, I for one think the bike and new engine scheme is damn cool. I have always digged this bike because of the style.

Getting a late start on a couple updates for spring. 
New 7" headlight
aluminum coils



I need to find a new spot for the ignition switch.  For the addition of new coils.  I also want to cram flasher under tank.
I wasnt going to dig into the wiring this deep, but once I got started its hard to find a stopping point.  So, I decided I am going to have to clean it up a bit.



and make some room for the headlight.



First thing I need to get the ignition sw moved out from under tank.



  I am going betwixed gauges on triple.



crammed it in to see if it would even fit.



pulled the bracket I made to lower the gauges and w some cutting and bending its ready to try.



fits nice, snug and solid.  doesnt rub triple or gauges.  pleased.



A quick sandblast and fresh black epoxy will be in order.

Then onto bracket for the coils.
had a length of square aluminum tube standing in the corner for years.



used a hole saw and drill press at work. 







Then had Gary an iron worker buddy weld up deflectors on it.



I was going to polish it up w the coils...but thats just too much aluminum.  So I think Im gonna blast it and epoxy black it...with the coils polished nice.  It should be ok.

Im also thinking of blasting the chrome of that massive 7" bucket and black it also....

LOL... I don't see how you get "painted on oil gushing out" but that's funny. It's not oil it's Texas Tea. :)

The new ignition switch location looks great!

Hey Trek that guy's XS650 is STILL sitting under a tarp two doors down. He has the carbs built and swears it will run with them back on but he's too frail to ride a bike anymore and is holding on to it till someone will love it as much as he does. Still only $400 last I heard.

Damn cool coil bracket!

Thanks guys.  I hope the coil bracket looks decent once I get it on.  need to get this wiring cleaned up before I can get my buddy greg in here to do the welding on the tabs for it.  Im not gonna weld it cause they will be somewhat visible.  And my welds should never be seen by anyone.
Also, my only real concern w the new coil location is the heat radiating from the headers.  But, Im thinkin w all the added air flow, they shouldnt get any more heat than the old coils crammed up under tank 5 inches above the headers.
If heat is an issue I may have to add some small heat shields.  But thats no big deal.
