In case anyone is considering this mod, I ended up putting the crank in the lathe to tidy up the grooves and scoring, but taking off the bare minimum to achieve a reasonable finish. The seal, retained by a thin cover plate and some small allen screws Loctited in has now been in place for about 6,000km without problems. I don't have an oil pressure gague so I don't know how much it helps but its got to be better than the sloppy bush that was in there before.
Good luck !
Nitram.  :)

I suppose we should be flattered; someone went to the trouble of registering for the site, to post a spam or possibly malicious link to this thread... The post and the meber have been deleted, but if you're one of the ones who received an e-mail notification about the new post, I'd suggest you don't click on the link in the message text, just in case.

Electrics / Re: Running without a battery?

I'd 'planned' something similar (I do a lot of ideas and none ever comes to fruition) but was disheartened by the space occupied by the rear mudguard. I'd visualised a box fitting right through from side to side, but the mudguard took up most of the space. I did consider replacing the battery with a small AGM type, that could be stuck pretty much anywhere. That might be more convenient than dispensing with it altogether.

I've started mine with a completely flat battery, so that's encouraging.

That's a pretty good indication that a capacitor can be substituted for the battery.

The battery space on the NF is so huge, I'd like to re-purpose it for storage.

I've started mine with a completely flat battery, so that's encouraging. On a parallel course, Tonya removed his dynamo and battery, and ran a total loss system from a small Li-ion battery, with rarely used LEDs and a reprofiled points cam to reduce dwell. Worked OK, although he's now looking at fitting a mini-dynamo to restore some charge. The stock dynamo and battery are way oversized for civilian use.
