Please, I need a little help.
I'm trying to remove a fixed cup on an '88 bianch limited.
BB is italian threaded. It reads 36x24 on the fixed cup and adjustable cup. In all the books and research I have done this means italian threaded which means it threads on righty tighty, lefty loosey. Right?
Am I missing something.
I've tried everything. I tried Sheldon Browns method of using a bolt, washers and nut. I tried using a plane old 32mm wrench. I tried using a hammer on the 32mm wrench just to try to get something to budge. When I used Sheldon's method, I shattered the 5/8 attachment on my socket wrench. SHATTERED!
I'm pretty pissed at this point because my new BB arrived today and I've been looking forward to working on my bike all day.
I don't own a vice or have access to one or else I would try that.
Have any bike companies been known to FIX the fixed cups on with some sort of loctite or something. This thing ain't movin'.
Please, please. I beg of you. Help.
