Strongarm II Crankarm removal question
OK, I'm trying to remove the cranks on my wife's '03 Epic WSD but the damn things don't seem to come off. According to the S website, they are XT Octalink splined. My bike's XTs have a screw that doubles as a crank puller. The ones on the Strongarm just unscrew leaving the crank in place.
So - given that this is an Octalink, anyone have any tips or recommendations on how to budge thse damn things? Is my screw messed up since it doesn't ease the crankarm off?
Found water in the frame and I want to clean out the bottom bracket housing. Already pulled the fork and cleaned out that part of the frame. I'm pretty sure the Cane Creek headset is shot, but I'll get her a CK replacement. I'm hoping I can clean up the BB and reuse it rather than replacing it.
