unfamiliar with the Campy self-extracting crank bolt system, yesterday dismantling my chorus cranks, I manged to bit by bit remove the dust ring AND the bolt.
someone here kindly advised me that the ring/bolt system works together and so I just cranked the other side and Pop it came off.
Now though I am stuck with the fallout of my illadvised incursion on the non-drive side. I"ve got the crank arm still on (and of course my old style crank extractor tool doesn't work on this reverse thread hole. Does it?)
I see that to get the arm off I have to put the bolt back into the ring, reinstall the ring and then undo the bolt.
How do I get the bolt and dust ring back together now?
( I tell you, there is no bette way to learn how bikes work than trial and error. repeated error error error.....)
