    miche crank help

    I recently got a frame with some old miche cranks (from the 80's) on it. I was wondering if anyone knew what crank puller would work to get them off?. I have park tool crank puller, but it doesnt seem to fit properly. Any help would be much appreciated.

    By doesn't seem to fit - do you mean the threads are not engaging or this there another issue?

    the threads engage just a little bit, but it feels forced and im worried im gonna strip them....i really dont wanna mess up the threads...i thought id ask if anyone had similar cranks if there was a specific crank puller or thread size to be used.

    there is inherent resistance, that is why we use the puller. If you know you're not cross-threaded, continue turning the handle of your tool and the initial full revolution should be difficult ad then you'll feel the release.

    He's talking about the initial screwing of the puller into the crank, not pulling the cranks off.
