I am having one hell of a time removing the bottom bracket from an old 1980s Trek frame. The bottom bracket is an older style cup-and-cone bottom bracket. I have tried everything, and I'm not sure if the bottom bracket isn't just rusted or seized into the frame. Even the bb spindle won't rotate.
I am using a Hozan lockring spanner wrench, and I have tried to remove the left-side lockring, but it just will not loosen. I am turning the non-drive lockring counterclockwise to try and loosen, but it won't budge. It's been awhile since I've worked on these and my understanding is to remove completely the left (non-drive) lockring and cup first before proceeding to the removal of the drive-side lockring and cup. Any ideas???
