I have an Ashtabula crank on an ancient Nishiki Super 5 that doesn't quite want to pull.
I'm mostly inclined to just work around it. Clean it, add some grease & close it, but I was debating fresh bearings as well so it'd be nice to get it apart.
Anybody have a magic trick for these or am I going to have to pull the drivetrain side cup?
If I have to pull the cup any suggestions?Ashtabula.jpg
