Possibly go to 500rpm....

Just a thought as i said, for those who have the access to a lathe....

Yup, I'd try that if I had one. Good tip.

And Roeland, thanks! But I was lazy and left the magneto on the bike. I did half of it at a time, let the JB Weld harden, then rotated the engine with a breaker bar to do the other half. I'm the type of guy who will lazy myself into a harder job.
