I recently bought a 1976 Honda cb360 that seemed to be in decent shape. It does not run but has good compression. The wiring seems to be a little messy and may need to be checked out. The first thing I am going to do is rebuild the carbs and see if that gets her running. The previous owner had already started to convert it into a cafe racer so I figured I would stay with that look instead of restoring her.

I started to disassemble the carbs and cleaned them with Chem-Dip.

After (It still needs a little more cleaning but it looks 10x better)

If I recall correctly that tube won't screw down all the way flush, the end that goes up into the body actually holds the nozzle for the needle jet in place. If you look at your before picture it sticks out.

That is not a 76. Air boxes are mounted to frame differently. Check Vin number and post and we can give a better guess on year. 1976 frame had a couple of differences and wiring was slightly different to. Starter wiring, headlight wiring, so being clear on the model year can help avoid wiring faults.
