Thanks, Dutch.
The drag was 130 with 150mm cranks, and 78 rpm for both of them.
I wasn't sure about doing the second one, but it turned out okay.

Did you get new cranks or have the originals drilled?

Dutch,
I had them drilled by a very helpful local machine shop.
They didn't have the pedal taps, so I got those from Ebay.
Here's a previous thread on this.
