Tools for Shimano 105 (1050) Bottom Bracket

Hi guys. Just resurrected my 1987 Cannondale SR 500 with Shimano 105 (1050 group) components. I have it back on the road, but want to start an overhaul. I did the BB almost thirty years ago, and cleaned everything, and replaced, and greased the bearings, but can't locate my tools. I remember having a crank puller, and a BB wrench to remove the threaded covers, and a pin tool for the outer dust cover. However, there seem to be different styles, sizes, and types, and I don't no what to get. This is a standard Square Taper spindle crank.

Can you point me in the right direction for which tools I need, and any vids to instruct on this style of BB? Thanks!!!

The Park website should step you through everything. 105 back then had black plastic caps on the crank bolts which you just pry off. Then you'll use a 14mm socket wrench, a crank puller and large wrench to tighten it into the crank threads, and then a lockring spanner and a part green pin spanner for the adjustable cups. You usually leave the fixed cup in place when cleaning and overhauling.

Yes, the black plastic bolt covers have pin holes for a pin wrench I assume. It is frustrating, because I did this with no problems, thirty years ago, but don't remember much, and lost the tools I used. Do you know which Lockring Spanner it takes? I've checked on Park, and there are several. Is there a specific crank puller I need, or just a generic? Thanks.

The Green spanner I mentioned is the SPA-1. You can get away with using the Red SPA-2, which can also serve as a dust cap remover because it has smaller pins. But you can also get a Shimano TL-FC21 to remove caps (and chainring bolts), or you can make a simple tool out of wire or wood with finishing nails. The caps don't need any torque. Which is why I would get the SPA-1 and either the TL-FC21 or make something.

For pullers you need either the CCP-22 or the universal CWP-7 that will work on newer Octalink or ISIS cranks as well as older square taper ones like yours.

Thanks! That's great. I also assume the HCW-5 Bottom Bracket Lockring Wrench will work on the lockrings. If memory serves, that looks like what I had before. Thanks again.

For dust caps, snap ring pliers also make great pin spanners, if you already have one.

The closet thing I have would be a needle nose plier. I'll try to rig up something if that doesn't work, or maybe a buddy has something. Thanks.

The needle nose plier should work, if you need more torque stick a screwdriver or other lever between the jaws.

Thanks. I'll give that a try. I don't want to b*tch up the plastic dust covers too much, as I don't know how replaceable they are.

The problem with needle nose pliers is that they scar up the dust cover holes. Might as well remove them with a hammer and throw 'em out if you're going to bugger them up with the wrong shaped tool.

That's my concern. I may just get the red spanner if it can handle both jobs.

You know, that's what I did way back when. But the green spanner is easier to use. Either way, you'll be fine.

Will the green spanner do both? My impression was that it would no fit on the outer dust cover.

No. The green spanner has bigger pins and is flatter, which is why it is easier to use because it clings to the cup holes better. The red is curved more.
