I have a Raleigh 3 speed. The bottom bracket, unlike the hubs does not have a lube hole/zerk fitting.
I tried to press off the bolted cotter. Used a "C" clamp with an adapter on the non bolted side to allow it to slip through when it came loose. Well, it did not come loose. Tried penetrating oil N.G. I don't want to beat the sh8t out of it and I was afraid to much pressure would bend/damage the bolt and threads.
Any ideas? Can I drop a long tube down the seat tube and pump in some light weight lube or gear oil that way? I really don't want to mess this bike up
I know I can support the BB shaft and crank and use a block of wood the beat on nut and bolt side but this doesn't seem to do anything.
I would settle on just getting some lube down to those bearings.
