Re: 1 piece cranks and sealed BB help!!!

I just went through this

Found it best to remove the mounting hardware then when the 1 Pc crank is floating between the bearings unscrew the chainring bolt and slide a long blunt nosed object (I cut the end off a long heavy screwdriver) through he smaller of the two holes of the chain ring into the BB and pop out the non drive side bearing out of the cup then go to the other side and pop out the drive side bearing and voila.

Re: 1 piece cranks and sealed BB help!!!

This thread is old... but still SO relevant.

I like how I gave all this advice 2 years ago....

and tonight I'm totally scratching my head.... and cursing into the air about getting a 1-pc crank with sealed bearings out of my Morales frame.... The Solid CD sprocket (with no holes is a huge pain!!!!!!!) Blocking every angle - allowing no wiggle room.

roll <--- I roll my eyes at myself!!!!!!  lollollol
GRRRRR.

Re: 1 piece cranks and sealed BB help!!!

I just went through this lol
I punched out the drive side first, then it was easy to get to the non-drive side....
Thanks for the tips!

Re: 1 piece cranks and sealed BB help!!!

Had a Petes bb on my DB with one piece cranks. Interesting to work on to say the least.
