I just acquired a 74 DT360, it was originally owned by DTDave. I never meet to gentlemen but I heard he was a great guy and had a nice family. I started working on the engine today and will be posting as things go on.







Thanks Mark

The exhaust studs are 6 mm in the head and 8 mm on the outside. I found out they break really easy, installed heilcoil and 8mm stud

Got to love the DT360, special machine! Trying to finish mine up (1-1/2 years already) and have enjoyed the whole process, lots of parts available and lots of knowledge available on them that makes it easier for sure.
One of these exhaust studs broke as well / other came right out . Looking forward to hearing about your progress mdscott

Great stuff Mark! It looks like the bike has found a good home! DTDave would be proud.

Interesting how Yamaha used those stepped studs "backwards" from how you normally see them... makes it look like a big tough stud when it's really a little wimpy one... better stop my comment there... family website and all... :ROFLOL

yes i remember those stupid studs on other yamy trail bikes, maybe 175's etc. Makes you wonder if they got a bucket load given to them & "thought we'd better use these" & save money, could never understand it.

DTDave was a good guy, we rode with him and his son a couple of times. He will be missed.

Good luck on the resto.

More photos, the crank threads are little buggered, but I think enough to tighten nut. The trans case was very clean. I picked up the bike at MarkT's place, his red Ford truck is behind my camper, its cool he can take off on a dirt bike from his house.
