Hi
I’m about to replace the cam tensioner (Slipper) blade on my 1975 CB360 G5 and wanted to know if the blade is supposed to have a rubber foot on both ends. It has one at the top but can’t find a diagram to see if there should be one at the bottom as well.
Thanks Paul

It shouldn't have a rubber foot on either end. Those dampers live inside each of the holders on either side. The blade ends are just the curled steel and those seat into a rubber damper with a tab (part 15 on the diagram) on the lower, in the tensioner holder, and then the top seats into the upper holder, all contained in the blowup for part #1 on the diagram. That little U piece fits into the angled holder that then sits on top of the blade.

Worth noting - if your last set of blades broke, your friendly cam chain probably did you the service of shaving off that tab, and you'll have a really hard time getting the blade to seat in the lower without it (and even if you do, it won't stay put with the bike running). You can get replacements on eBay - the broken bit comes out with coaxing, a screwdriver, a hammer, and pliers, and the new one slots in easily :D https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-HONDA-DA...-369-000-CB360-/253807987174?oid=253683226683

Of course! I had to split the case on mine 3 times to finally get it right, hopefully it saves you the trouble :D
