The Improbable Bulk
Cottered cranks can be painful. Do you plan to reuse the cottered cranks, or replace them with cotterless?
Either way, you can get some good advice in the Classic & Vintage forum. If you haven't discovered it yet, search http://www.sheldonbrown.com as he created some pages that help in dealing with cotters (and other issues relevant to bike maintenance/repair). Ideally you should have a cotter press, but there are alternative methods.
Hi and thanks!
Im going to be replacing them with cotterless cranks but im not sure if i need a special type to fit the bike or if i can get any regular kind, ill probably do a little research later once i get to that point. But yah thank you for that link, ill definitely try it out along with the vintage forum!
