I'm sure Princess Auto has plenty.  Matter of fact, something that says Princess would be perfect.

On a more realistic note, I have the tap and die to repair the threads on the messed up bolt and I think the internal threads in the crank will clean up even better.  Here's hoping it lives again soon.
the nose of the crank will be hard as mosquito beaks, go easy
they got this stuff threadlocker stuff

Bring it on, wankers.  I'm pretty good at that game myself ;-)

XB, yeah that's the plan. I got the threads fixed on the bolt, I'll have time to open the case for the cranks this weekend. And that's one of the only things I didn't put the red lock tite on too

Well, the primary gear is repaired and back together, bike will idle but bugs bad under any throttle whatsoever.  Just like last week.  So I'll be getting the stuff together for a vacuum test over the next week.  May order a coil and condenser while im at it too.

have you replaced the plug cap ?if it is a non resistor cap it should be fine though
definately get a new condser and set the timing with a strobe or dial
i have a box of nos japanese condensors post up a pic of yours and call out length and diameter
and what about the points cam   ? is it rust pit free and very  smooth ? a rough cam will wear down the rubbing block pretty quick, closing the points gap as it progresses,retarding timing and weakening spark ,that last part ,weaking spark,i could be mitaken something about coil saturation i think
