1974 dt360a was created by Robs360

New to forum. Stumbled across a 1974 dt360a vin 446-014769, matching # on engine. It's just a roller with engine. Missing flywheel and cover stator and pulser appear to be bad, no continuity from either and stator was pitifully rusted though I was able to remove without breaking bolts. Autolube there but disconnected and cylinder plugged. Cover Missing over oiler also. I know about the vape system but before spending that much before I get it running and source correct fuel and oil tanks, what's the most economical way to source stator and flywheel, a points system from a dt250? Any suggestions on sourcing parts besides ebay? I'm about an hour south of kcmo everything scarce around me. Thank you for any suggestions. I am confident I can restore and get running if I can find parts.

Greetings from NZ. Stator source coil without looking should have about 350 ohms so need the scale cranked up on an annologue meter, i'm too old for digital.
Think those had just one brown wire from the sorcey thing.
Pulser would be white/green & white/red & you might need to touch one to earth then test the other to earth & visa-versa with other but don't quote me on that. I guess if that reads then should be also between those two wires.
Probably around 100 ohms. I'll look it up tonight. I'm just going by memory hoping you get a reading of sorts.
I'm using just the source & a suzuki plug coil cdi box combined unit & just one wire from source straight to the coil & works.
If all else fails then a late DT250 points mag from about "78 or a CDI mag from a "79 better cdi setup, or a DT400 from up near there--same better system after they ditched that dodgy pulser stator.

My suggestion for the cheapest option would be to replace with a points system from a DT250. DEET here on the forum makes a plug and play mini loom conversion for the main wiring harness.

Thank you Pabdt, I've actually been following your restoration. I'll have to figure out the pics thing. Like r325 said might try to source 250 ignition.  Not much there but bare roller and bare engine, surprisingly both brakes work fairly well

Hi Rob, I’ll go look at my box of DT250A parts.. I may have the points and stator plate. You’ll have to decipher if it’ll work on yer 360. I’m in Mn by Duluth.

Sneezles61, thank you that's very kind. I might have found a 75 dt250 that's pretty rough but having difficulty getting owner to respond. I think he just collects and junks scrap has no idea of year or condition won't give me serial #, going to look at this weekend if I can get him to respond. Surprisingly has a decent looking fuel tank though painted white. I will post if I can get it. Exhaust comes out on left side is why I think it might be 74 but not sure
