I've been fixing bikes for a few year now. I recently picked an old Peugeot UO5 few weks ago. The bottom bracket was a little loose. No problem let's fix it with a new cartridge BB. First, the thread to remove the right crank was stripped. No sweat I'll remove the bolt and ride around the block until the crank fall off. After over 20 km it was still there. I descide to cut the soft aluminium crank. With stripped thread it was trash anyways. Not I can't get the fix cup out. I have the HCW-4 and the J.A. STEIN FCC-2 to hold the tool in place. But the park tool is 36mm and the fix cup is 35 mm. I tried the park tool but it was not working. Looks like VAR tools have some special tool for a 35mm fixed cup. I also use the Sheldon Brown DIY tool ( http://sheldonbrown.com/tooltips/bbcups.html ) but no success.
I want to know if you tried the Shedon Brown DIY tool? Does is really matter if I'm tighten the bolt or the nut? Maybe I just need to "insist" more with the Sheldon Brown tool?
