I'm not sure, but to be honest, I think you should just leave it. It looks downright mean like that. Put some nice LED's in it and the cover back on and I'd call that good to go!

Lol, you could've came and picked up a few of those bearings from me. I have an excess of them actually, came from a machine my dad's work was scrapping. What kind of clutch is that? Seems interesting. If you're using a chain off it make sure it has lots of support.

I work on stuff in the evenings too- just too hot and humid around here to work on them during the day.
