I don't have the wrench for this part of the headset (it's a no name) It is on a japanese bike. Can I tap this with a hammer and pin?

A hook spanner, like used on a cup and cone bottom bracket, would work better.

Yes.

If you want to preserve it;s pristine condition use a wooden pin. I keep a few of those free chopsticks you get with takeout sushi for jobs like this.

What kind of sushi?


Oh, and there are many spanners available.


Like this:


https://www.amazon.com/Ade-Advanced-...=AR+15+spanner


or this one, more for bikes:


https://www.amazon.com/Park-Tool-HCW...spanner+wrench


or


https://www.amazon.com/TOOGOO-Bicycl...icycle+spanner




I have a few, including a really nice cast one with French curve like contours, two sided. I cannot recall the brand or find it in a simple Google search now. Sorry...

All kinds. I live in lower Westchester, which has a sizeable Japanese community. Long before it was trendy, we always had a good number of Sushi restaurants, and the knowledgeable customer base meant for excellent quality.

BTW - if you like Sushi and drink cold saki may I give a free plug to a great one. Try one of those from Saki One. My favorite g 50, but they're all good, and it's made right here in the USA.

Footnote to my earlier post.

Where you buy sushi matters. You want a place that gives you decent chopsticks made of real Bamboo, not those crappy ones made of some sort of soft splintery wood.

That's a good idea. I am usually too impatient to get something off and just use a flathead screwdriver. As a consequnce, all my BB lockrings are disfigured.

I will have to keep an eye out for disposable bamboo chopsticks, and keep them in the garage with the package of bamboo bbq skewers that I use all the time (they're great for applying glue, poking, scraping, helping get grips off, etc, but not strong enough for knocking lockrings loose)
