I'm just starting to learn about taking care of my 1981 Miyata 610. Starting with a complete cleaning & greasing/lubing. I've got everything off of it but the cranks and headset. The headset I'm going to leave alone. The cranks are giving me trouble.
The cranks are branded Miyata on the outside, SR on the inside. I got a Nashbar crank puller in a tool kit. In the middle of the business end is something looking like a stovepipe hat. If that piece wasn't there, I could screw it into the crank. Has anyone used this tool--do I have to modify it in some way?
Feel free to laugh.
