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 cover 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.

My 500 has been running pretty solid, but over the last few weeks I’ve been fine tuning it. I pulled the carbs last week and did a bench sync, which helped a lot. This morning I did a full tune up and then decided to take her out for a ride. I was on my […]
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
sorry, wrong link i think, cant copy exact product links on McMaster but its part number 98093A445

Number 17 i think?
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?
