Your sickness is my gain. I shouldn't feed the beast though I suppose, like putting crack in a 99 with a Flake ;)

hy pj how is the oil mod evolving?
Slowly, I did get some copper tube from Pep-Boys a while ago for the external line.
It should be self regulating, when rpm and pressure are low, path of least resistance will be through normal oilways, when rpm and pressure are high (plus oil is hot and thin) the external line will feed through cam
That's my theory, and I'm sticking to it ;)

Finally got my act together today and did some work on 3rd 360
Polished the generator covers (engine cover and outer cover) plus the Suzuki GSXR top and bottom yokes.
They are not finished as I'm going to convert to top mounted handlebar clamps when I can find the bits I stashed about 4 yrs ago
Also did rear hub to build the 'blue wheel' but decided I'm going to paint the center section first
I pretty much gave up when I realised I couldn't go to Barber :(

That's a shame PJ. I'm sure if it's because of finances, people would have chipped in to get you tickets and such. It would certainly be an honor to meet you.

Guess I'll plan for next year
Something else came up as well, wife has to go to Britain
She's using her student loan to take me with her, if I can get passport sorted out in time.
Both surgeons now have me with 30lbs weight restrictions, no repetetive motion, etc
Still no money coming in (other than 'hobby cash')
I'll survive though 8)

Rear hub polished and painted.
Used Rustoleum blue metallic between spoke flanges
It's a reasonable match for the forks and rims plus real close to the original Honda blue tank
Have to tidy up the taped edges, should have done it before I took pic ;D
Going to give paint a day or so to harden before building wheel

Was going to build wheel when I realised I don't have a set of brass spoke nipple washers (sold them to a guy on SOHC4.net)
Made a set this afternoon, each one takes about 5~7 whacks in doming set but, they are done
Made this last night, it holds CB360 throttle slide so I can remove the needle holding screw, several of the sets I've re-build have had the screw chewed up, this makes it easy to hold slide in vice without damage and have both hands free

Yes...turning slide into an egg would be a very bad move. Its about time you start taking these carbs seriously...LOL, sometimes I slay myself.

Haven't damaged a slide as I was just holding onto them, spiked myself pretty good with the needle a few times thoughand got fed up with it.
Set I'm doing now had a really chewed up screw, fixed pretty easy when it was out
I have rear wheel built with the 2.15" MX rim, got 2 wheels to true now, going to re-do another rear next week, don't like the black and gold so I'm going to make it match the front, polished alloy with yellow between spoke flanges
Polishing the outside of hubs is a PITA though

PJ, whats the best size to run on a CB360, I have to buy new rims and tires so I might as well get the widest I can

cheers

WM2 or WM3 front, WM3 rear with a 90/90 front and a 110/90 rear tyre
You could possibly use WM4 but you will need to do other mods to use wider tyres (swap forks, etc)

Finally got round to making the second roller wheel and holder for DTI so wheel truing is even easier ;D
Had a piece of ' useful material' left over from when I made caliper mounts for XS650 (not 'scrap' ;) )

That's a nice setup. Sure beats the vice and left over pieces of pipe that I've used in the past.

It's a swing arm clamped in vice with a piece of sheet steel bent to allow magnetic bases to 'stick.
I may get round to welding things together one day plus add some feet so vice isn't 'tied up'
The other wheel pics/vids are several pages back

Really glad I came to Britain, feeling more motivated to get back to Florida and do some stuff on bikes than I've felt in last few years.
Spent a few hours with various friends I haven't seen in 9yrs + (up to 20 yrs in one case)
Dean now has shop with 2 Bridgeport's, Colchester 2000 lathe and a bunch of other machinery (plus Dynojet dyno)
Called in for 10 mins, left about 5 hrs later 8)
Going to be posting some holiday pics when I get back ;D
