Does anyone happen to have two "Peugeot cut" 9mm cotters lying around? I can't find them anywhere - the closest that I've seen are 3/4 cut. I'll be happy to pay for shipping, etc if someone is kind enough to have two to spare.

BITD We Got a Cotter then Filed the taper, to get a perfect fit..

never use the nut to tighten it , just hammer it in , then snug up the nut to keep it there..

Never installed a replacement cotter that didn't need to be filed.

Chances are you're on top of this, but tap them with a hammer and retighten the nuts after your first ride, then again in a week, then again in a month. This will snug up the metal for better contact, so you'll never have to replace them again (ideally).

Ideally, you'd use a proper cotter press, check them after your first ride, and if you keep the nut tight, you'll not likely need to even check them again until it's time to remove them to overhaul the BB. A hammer is a "make-do" solution, not a best practice, and far from ideal.

I'm with @Ghrumpy - buy a cotter press.

I finally "splurged" on a VAR 07 a few years back before they got too expensive and it's paid for itself time and time over. I can pop out and pop in cotters in 2-3 seconds either way, like butter. Other places have non-fulcrum versions for under $50.

Next time you need 9mm cotters, ping me. I'd have saved you a buck or two on shipping if nothing else...

I picked up a Park cotter press at a swap meet for $25. A shop was unloading it because they apparently never used it. Sure looked new.

I probably have some 9mm ones too. I have a couple small drawers full of cotters. More than I could use in ten lifetimes.

I'm sort of in the same boat. I've left my number w/local co-op in case anyone needs cotters.

And at the original poster, only takes 2-3 minutes and a couple of presses to file them down perfect!
