Re: My 1974 CB360 project

Spent some time today fabbing a bracket for the tail light and license plate and finishing up the tach/speedo design and fab.





I also had a spacer made to eliminate the speedo drive, it's 29mm long if you want to make one.

Re: My 1974 CB360 project, updated photos, HELP with puzzle 3/18

Somebody help me identify the 2 seals, 1 gasket and 2 o-rings circled. I don't recall what they are for, I just got the Athena gasket kit and there is not item list.

I don't have any idea what those items are for, but I like what you did with the indicator lights. I might have to steal that from you. Great Idea!

Valve Seals and Oil Pump gasket?
Nope, 4 valve seals... oil pump gasket?? Don't remember there being one of those.

Won't your Speedo block the tach?
Just the bottom of the tach where there is no information.

Re: My 1974 CB360 project

There are 2 sorta really wide o-rings that go around 2 of the locating pegs between the head and the cylinders to keep the oil in the back out side 2 studs from leaking out. Those are the oil passages to the head. # 3 on the diagram below.

The other 2 are possibly # 24 on that diagram for the oil pump, they go behind it.

Are there any good how to tips for rebuilding the master cylinder? I don't even know how to get the boot off... just pull it out?

Re: My 1974 CB360 project

To be honest, if it doesn't leak leave it alone. All I did to mine was flush it really well, clean it off and paint it. It hasn't leaked and does a great job.

There is special set of snap ring plyers to get the snap ring out. That's all I know about it.

Another small update, installed my drilled rotor and front caliper. Waiting for MC rebuild kit. Progress has slowed a bunch. I took the valve seals out of the head and the new ones in my gasket kit are not even similar :mad:

Re: 1974 CB360 project- coming along nicely

Man I get frustrated searching for some of these little parts. Then you find one of them somewhere and get killed on shipping a single bit worth $2

Re: 1974 CB360 project- coming along nicely

I put the tach back together this morning, I think it looks great. I have two extra overlays like this if anybody wants to Paypal me $12 shipped. incline@nb.aibn.com




I'm just trying to figure out how to fold the edge back down without scratching the paint.....
