This is probably high up there in lazy maneuvers so I'm expecting a lot of no's, but has anyone ever greased a bottom bracket on a bike with a cottered crank without removing the crank arms?
I don't even know if this is physically possible, depending on clearance between the crank arm and the bottom bracket shell. I'm just asking because I got a free high-ten azuki off craigslist and both bottom bracket cups have notches that fit the 3 slot end of my park lockring tool. They're loose enough that I'm able to easily adjust both while the crank arms are still on. The bottom bracket could probably use some grease but I really don't want to futz with the cotters if at all possible.
This is probably just karma for scoffing at the price of the $50 cotter press tool a week or two ago, but that tool still costs $50 more than what I paid for this bike and I don't plan on adding any more cottered crank bikes to the stable.
