    Suntour cartridge BB questions

    I have an 85 Schwinn Peloton that has a Suntour cartridge BB with sealed bearings. I've posted pics at:
    http://chmara.com/dev/bt/cycling/images/pelotonbb.jpg and
    http://chmara.com/dev/bt/cycling/images/pelotonbb2.jpg

    Is this BB serviceable? If so, does anyone have the procedure or know where I can obtain any documentation? The right side bearing spins independently of the shell, but the left does not. The spindle spins OK, but the bearings need to be replaced. There's a moderate amount of corrosion which may account for the stuck left bearing.

    I'm also wondering if anyone knows where to find the tool for the cups. It's an 8 tooth splined cup as you can see from the pics. I was able to remove it using a pin spanner, but assuming I can service the thing, I'd prefer to have the proper tool when reinstalling and adjusting.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance,
