"Bolt" the wheel to the truing stand as you would bolt it into your fork end.

connect a small battery to the contacts
to enourage the wheel to turn

of course you can only true the wheel in one direction
but its worth a try

Axle nuts - or am I missing something?

There's no such thing as a routine repair.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

also

the bearings and the dynamo are two separate systems
if adjusting the cones will give significantly less drag
then the bearings are too tight
and this has nothing to do with the dynamo
