fella's, I really wanted to bring my Kona along for its first proper outing, but after some fettling, ive not been able to eliminate about 1mm play in the cup/cone bottom bracket as im missing the lockring spanner.

Would i definitely be best off not riding it and bringing something modern instead, or do you think itll be alright to ride as is?
it just feels like a very slight knock when you rock the crank arm side to side.
ive not much experience with these proper old school b/b's!
