So ive taken the small sidewheel off and the orings are fine, manualy turning the brass saddle i can feel its notchy/dragging, whats under the second plate that you have to remove with a bit of wood and 2 nails wider apart then the first face plate, will it lose its nitrogen?
John Lee is the man to speak to, nothing he doesn't know about mk1/mk2 big nikkos. He's a member at Redferns and I'll try to get you his contact info asap
