During commuting my fair weather Schwinn Traveler has started to develop grinding sounds from around my feet, so I decided to take apart and repack the bottom bracket.
I took the dust cabs off, removed the nut attached to the axle and started to remove the crank arm. However, this is where I'm stuck. I cannot get them off.
The axel tip is flush with the outside crank arm threads and the crank puller cannot go in far enough to thread it in. There is no washer inside. What am I doing wrong?
