Cranks Need A Fixin'

Got madera protocols. I used the tool to put the arms on and on one side, It cant be tightened anymore but the arm still isn't on all the way. Then i stripped the tool threads and now i need another way to get the arm on if possible. I could probably borrow another tool.

Your lucky you only stripped the tool and not the cranks... You're going to have to borrow another tool from someone.

Is there any way to get the arm further on or off without the tool?

You could try greasing all around the cranks so if you get a bit on/off it should go the rest of the way off pretty easily.

You could put the bolt in and tighten it. Should push the cranks on

Got it done. Whoever said not to use hammers should be shot. Liquid wrench into the splines then a hammer to knock the arm off then silicone and a hammer to knock it back on.
