I posted this in the Mechanics forum and have gotten a lot of replies, but since this is SS/FG related I will post here as well. My Kilo TT came this week and I want to switch out the chain ring from 48T down to 44T. Anyways, the chain ring bolts are seized. Usually I use a big flat blade screwdriver, on the nuts but the bolts protrude out the back. I am told that some form of lock-tite has been used and the bond needs to be broken. Park makes a tool to hold the nuts but no LBS has them to sell. I could mail order one but that doesn't help me know.
So far I have tried:
2) Compression ring pliers. Bent the pins.
3) Applied heat with a solder ***. No luck.
4) Combination of the above.
I just took the drive side of the crank off to make this easy and so I do not scratch the bike. I am almost ready to take a torch to the bolts to loosed them. Any ideas before I go insane?
