80W-90, fill to 1" below the hole you put it in.
A zip-tie makes an excellent dipstick for the transazle.

Re: New owner in Connecticut.

Find the reliner who has been around the longest in your area.
One member used a reliner who put too much hear on the aluminum
shoes and melted them!
You shouldn't have to tell a shop that they are aluminum, but do it anyway :roll:

A good cleaning might take care of the clutch
See BOR for Subaru Justy rear wheel cyls that can be adapted to your 360
Is shoes are OK you can get them relined, 5/32" bonded lining if the drums have
not been cut, 3/16" if they have been cut.

Re: How to locate Vin Number on 360 sedan

"matching numbers" means nothing on a 360.
The VIN for a sedan is K111L-(4 or 5 digits)
The only thing that matches it is the title :lol:

Engine # is not important and is nothing like the VIN

"matching numbers" is in a class with "very rare"
and "less than 100 imported" :twisted:

I checked the master list and this is the second lowest VIN I have for a pickup. That means it is PROBABLY a '68, if it has a 3-speed transaxle it is definitely a '68. Some items are different for the '68 but look at P. 27, 28, and 100 in the BOOK OF REPRINTS and you will see all the points and cond...

Your VIN says it is a '69 (some parts changed from '69) but fairly
