Hey all,

I am looking to get OEM carb choke parts. They are all part of item #8 below.



According to the website, it shows that #REQ is 2. Can anyone give an explanation why I need two? It appears that just one would suffice. Thanks!

Ok so the parts came in and with s lot of bending, they fit a CB360. Can someone take a picture or explain to me how the Bolt, lil bracket, and nut fit together on the carburetor? I am talking about the 3 components of #8 in the picture above all the ay to the left.

I'm not sure I really understand your question, but I think this is answer: The flat metal piece - maybe call it the transfer link because it transfers motion from one choke shaft to the other - stays attached to the left carb choke shaft and can be flexed to go over the choke shaft on the right carb. The bolt goes through the "U" at the right end to squeeze the slot in it closed and clamp it onto the left shaft.

Here are a couple of pictures from my CL350 carb rebuild that might help. It's not exact to the 360 but might help clarify things.

Thanks for the help Mike. My issue is with this lil guy:


What is the purpose of this? I have been trying to put it on like it is shown in the exploded drawing but rattles around loosely in place. I am considering just leaving it off.

It connects to the other carbs choke shaft, and clamps down on it, allowing the chokes to work in unison.

Kruk -

Like GB's photo shows.

It's sort of a bs solution to the problem and only works half-assed anyway.
Many times they do come off, especially if you've been messing with the breather tube and bumped it.

But you do need it, to keep the chokes synched up.

OK gotcha. I figure the CB360 vibrations might end up shaking it loose as you all mentioned. I will try tightening that bolt down a bit a different way to see if that will do it.
