    CB360 Carb issue

    So as I rebuild my 75 Honda CB360T, I found an issue that caused me some major concern. When running the motor, fuel would start spraying out of the right side carb. After running for a few minutes it would also begin to leak fuel out of the overflow valve at the bottom of the carb.

    I decided to rebuild them and as I got started I noticed that I could not locate the coil springs from the vacuum pistons on either carb. This being my first rebuild of a carb, I wanted to know if someone could shed some light on this for me.

    Could the missing springs be what was causing the fuel overflow? Also, does anyone have an idea on where I could get replacement springs?

    I found vacuum piston sets for around $100 but that seems pretty steep when all I need is a couple of springs.
    Damn, I thought that would work...

    Yes those missing springs could have a lot to do with it. They are going to stay wide open pretty much all the time.

    great, god knows where the hell they went. but, judging by the wiring and other monkey ass things that have been done to the bike, it doesn't surprise me.

    the overflow can be bad needle valves (the ones that floats are supposed to close) holed float (fills with gas and thus does not float).

    I bought a rebuild kit for mine and it came with new needle valves (and wrong main jets and pilot jets look slightly different too - but that is another story).
