[SOLVED refer post #12]
I picked up a complete 2nd hand bike on TradeMe (like eBay in NZ) and am currently going through the dismantling process. As you can imagine I've hit a couple of snags - I'll keep each problem (2 atm) to a separate thread.
The drive-side crank bolt is seized on like a ........
The other side came off easily (as did the crank with a crank puller and even the bottom bracket part on that side) but I cannot get this bolt off for the life of me. I have a chain whip and a big bad spanner which gives me good leverage but no budgey.
Is this type of crank bolt DEFINITELY CCW (I've tried both ways...)?
Any Pro Tips for removing this thing outside of taking to the LBS? I've tried liberal amounts of WD40 from front and back and still nothing. It appears to be on there good.
Sorry I know there are other threads on this topic but I have read all of Google and still can't get this off (haven't tried everything as I don't have a blowtorch/angle grinder!!!!!).
