Like the title says. I picked up an old '91 Sekai "Mountaineer SL" MTB (AFAIK same as Norco) to serve as a back-up to my '88 GT for commuting duties. It is totally OEM equipment, been literally sitting in a garage for the past 20 years. When I went to pull the cranks I was stymied by my Park tool not threading (worked just fine on my Timberline a few minutes later). Looking at it, there is what appears to be a 14mm nut in there but doesn't appear to have any clearance to actually get a socket around it.
Is there another type of crank puller tool I need to purchase?
This has not only a 20 year old components but it appears to be super low end as well. Ultimately the frame itself suits my needs and I was able to roll home on it after purchasing it, so I'm basically happy with it in the long run, but stuck for the moment. I was hoping it'd be fine for about a week or so to get to work and back while I am waiting for parts to come in (and time to install them) for my main bike. Unfortunately, after less than 50 miles I am starting to feel some play in the cranks, noise at times (clicking-ish), and noticing some grease escaping onto them, and so am afraid I need to figure out getting those cranks off sooner rather than later. :/
I'll upload a photo in the morning, I'm posting this during my overnight shift at work, but I figured some folks here would be able to help me out even without the photo.
