chinonthetank cb360t engine

I don’t know much about this engine and that’s turning out to be an issue. I cleaned up the cylinder head coverĀ and then realized I don’t have the bolts to put it on which means, i can’t check compression. I’m hesitant to do more work on it without knowing the compression.

Anyone have the cylinder head cover bolts to a 360?

Rotor had some serious gouges out of it which isn’t a good sign of anything. Possible metal bits floating around?

The cam tensioner arm was frozen but I was able to break it loose using a drift.

On a positive note, I cleaned the master cylinder which was filled with dried brake fluid. However, the rubber was still in good condition so I didn’t use the rebuild kit and reassembled it.

    Should be a 6mm metric flanged bolt 25mm long according to the Bike Bandit OEM part sheets. Should be this guy: http://www.mcmaster.com/#cap-screws/=9k81ka

    The 6mm x 25mm are for the breather vent cap thingy. I need the screws to secure the cylinder head cover that has the cam rockers in it. These are the screws I have find:

    5 – 8×20
    1 – 8×45
    2 – 8×60
    6 – 6×45

    Its like $30 to order them all through Bikebandit and I guess Im just procrastinating ordering them and hoping I find someone with a blow 360 engine I can buy. These little things are adding up $$$.

    McMastercarr doesn’t have the right lengths and I’d have to order in packs of 10 or something.

    Bob, how’s north jersey treating you?
