If you can get both of them for $100. or so, you may have what you need to make one good one. If you can make that deal, and have a space for them under cover, start inventorying what's there and what's missing. If too much is missing, you can part them out and still come out ahead. But do it the ho...

Roy - good to hear from you, it will be great to have you back in the Club! Everyone who has the Book of Reprints knows your name, from the articles you sent in about the 360 pickup in Japan and the rotary-powered 360.

Your best bet is to join the Club - this opens up lots of parts sources, and the Book of Reprints has lots of crossover parts you can buy locally that will fit various places on your 360.

Either complete clutch assy. will work in any 360, provided the correct throwout bearing is used - but the separate parts of the 2 kinds of clutches ar...

Tony - make sure you used the right throwout bearing! The one for the diaphragm clutch has a rounded face, the one for the Jeffersonian Clutch is flat on the face.

ID of van frone wheel cylinders is 15/16", it's cast right into the side of the cylinder. Rears are 5/8"

Phil - the value of a 360 depends on the condition and the rarity of the body style. I encourage members to report actual sale prices to me so I can report to the NADA guide (which until this year published sale price ranges for all 360s) and also write appraisals for members whose 360s are damaged ...

I've got cylinder heads and intake manifold, but I don't have a manifold for twin carbs. How many head bolt holes in each cylinder on yours? If there are 4, it's an EK-32 and heads are easy to find. If there are 6, it's an EK-33, and you may need to get heads out of Japan. I'll put my current parts ...

The '68 and earlier vans all had 3-speed transmissions, all '69 an later were 4-speed. But the 3-door van (actually 4-door, because Subaru called their vans "5-door" is very rare in the US.
