Hey guys and gals,

anybody got a wiring harness diagram for a cj360T (1976)? In a pinch I think I can use the cb/cl360 wiring diagram from the same year.

I do have one. I will need to make a copy so email me an address or an email address. I will try to get it scanned.

That diagram might work for you but its not a cj diagram. It shows a starter motor and cj's do not have a starter motor. The main parts of the lighting, charging system and ignition should be the same although the color coding might be a little different. Let me know if you still need something else.

it is the color coding that is most important to me, I did a handlebar swap and disconnected some of the wires before I realized that there were duplicate colors in the factory harness, now my horn has constant power. I am trying to do it the quick way with the diagram instead of tracing every wire back to its source.

If you have the cj diagram mikeo please scan it.

Check that you dont have a short with the horn
thats what happened to me when I did my bars
All was good and all electrics worked great
until a very bumpy ride must have jostled things around and tiny peice of ground wire was touching the plate
and then Whoa Nelly - Constant Power- oh boy
I disconnected the horn under the tank so I could ride home
and then took apart the clutch housing and found it was pretty simple to rectify.
I was worried i would have to rewire everything but it turned out to be very simple.
I have a CJ360T Wiring diagram but its not in color and you can barely freakin read it
I hate those things
Roskos is the best i have ever seen

if you notice, the horn, running lights and front turn signals all have the same color positive wires, I must have the horn hooked up to the running lights. The other thing I don't like is that the rectifier, headlight, turn signals, and gauge lights all share the same color green for their ground wire, but I must have them hooked up properly since the bike runs and the headlight works.

Hondas are great machines, about the only fault I ever find with them is their electrics. Everytime I open an headlight and see a rats nest of wires I think of the little japanese guy that had to sit there and put that together, swearing in japanese all the way.

I emailed you a scan of CJ360T diagram. Did you get it?
not yet but I got your "rats nest" pic. It immediatly made me look for the pics of where actual rats had made a nest in the tail secton of one of my triples (and chewed the wiring to boot). sadly I couldn't find the pic.

BTW I owe you a drink...care to collect at matchless some night?
