Seized crank washers?
I am hoping someone will be able to help me out with a little issue. I am trying to remove the cranks from my bike. I have read through Sheldon Brown's web site, Park Tool USA & UtahMountainBiking.com without finding the answer I am after.
I should point out now that I have just removed the bottom bracket from one bike without any difficulty & am having issues with the second one.
So without further ado:
In this picture from UtahMountainBiking there’s a washer on the hex-head bolt that has been removed. In my bike both the washers appear to have become seized in the crank.
If they have seized how can I remove them?
Am I just a total noob at this & I have some other kind of crank that requires a special tool & I should go & hide now & be embarrassed?
Any help at all would be really appreciated.
