That IS weird looking.  And Im sorry I cant help w any info on that.  right or wrong.

I dont own a 350 and have never worked on one.

Im mostly just here to watch and learn.  And offer any helpful tips I can along the way.

But Im sure there is a reason for the two individual gears.  Otherwise, It seems they would be one.

From your pic it appears the two gears behind the oil filter cup are mis-aligned the same to match it though?

Been so long since I messed w my 360 I cant recall that.

75 CB400f and 72 CL100 both...only has one fat gear.

The gears on your clutch basket are correct.  They are not the same as the CB360, CB400 or CL100.

You have the early version CL/CB350 gear

Interesting. I wasnít aware that there had been this change. I just looked up the year and saw there was an earlier version, but a fairly straightforward run after that. I wonder if that will make replacements a snipe hunt? Or is there some forward compatibility there?

Would that alter the means of removing the basket from the shaft? Generally, I always play it on the safe side when Iím removing key components, so I hated to muscle it off.

Also curious to know what you guys think of that wear pattern. I suppose that could be from manufacturing, but itís so inconsistent across the edge.

those gears are exactly where they are supposed to be.  They are retained by rivets from the backing plate though the basket.  The two gears on the crankshaft - inboard of the centrifugal oil filter are matched with the same tooth offset.  The design is to reduce gear whine in a straight cut primary drive and avoid side thrusts from helical gears.

Scratch that...after looking at the website listed on your diagram I can see this is par for the course on the machining. Removing it is still up in the air.

Youíre right. I suppose the offset just looked strange to me. Iíve enjoyed disassembling this engine. Itís a genius design.

Iíve been skimming thru this thread, nice work so far. Iíve built a few 350ís but itís been a little while. Are you having trouble removing the clutch basket?

If so, have you removed the oil pump? I believe the pumpís plunger mechanism attaches behind the clutch basket, and the pump housing needs to be unscrewed before removing the clutch basket and gears. With the clutch basket circlip removed wiggle the basket/gears and youíll notice the resistance coming from the right side near the oil pump.
