Campy Crank puller???

Do Campy cranks require a special puller? I'm refering to older cranks like NR/Strada and SR...... let's say 1975-1981............

I use a Campy puller, just to keep the Mojo balanced, but Park, among others, make one that fits.

It's a standard freakin' crank puller. It's not like it's French, or something else stupid.

For the life of me, I don't know why I thought it may have been different. I thought someone had mentioned one side had a left hand thread like a BB, but I must have read it wrong.

Some newer Campy cranks take a reverse thread puller, no?

So you don't feel like a total Frenchy, some (not all) of the later Campagnolo cranks that had integrated one key releases used a reverse thread on the left. Not so with early or much later.

That being said, just look at the freaking thread, it's either right or left threaded, it ain't rocket science. If it's not a one key release, it's a no brainer, unless it's French, then you just wonder where their brain was.

Just to be fair to the French, Stronglight was first to the scene with their model 49 crankset, using a 23.35mm dustcap diameter. It is not their fault that others chose to be different.

23.35 sounds like a perfectly French measurement to me.

I mean, really? 23.35? Was that Joan of Arc's age or something? Average age of the President's mistress? WTF?

And Croce D' Aune, I think. The left-threaded cranks were this way because they had "self-extracting" bolts. The left-hand threads prevented the self-extractors from removing themselves and not the cranks.

Correct, and Victory as well (but not Triomphe).

I must be living on a different planet. I have owned many different style of Campagnolo cranks (NR, SR, Victory, C-Record and a couple of others, as I recall). Not one had a left hand dust cap thread, nor did any have a left hand one key crank puller. All were right hand threaded.

I am not calling anyone wrong, here. However, this is one time I would like to see some proof of what others are saying about the dust cap thread, and its direction, on these Campy cranks.

Anyone have any evidence, please? Again, not trying to be a smart ass. I just can't understand the rational, nor have I ever seen a left handed crank puller. And I have a Campy one also.

Yes, Randy, the puller threads are left-hand threaded. That said, you should never have to use a crank puller on the cranks. They have self extracting bolts. I purchased the Campagnolo tool to remove the self extracting bolts recently. This way I can treat the rust on the bolt and polish the arms of my Record and Chorus cranks.

So guys like you would not be seen riding around
on their bikes and dragging down the cool, sophisticated
image that riding a French bicycle projects to the world.

Glad I could clear this up.

Can someone provide a list of "normal crank pullers" alluded to here? I look on the Park Tool website and there are more than 5 choices. Which is the right one? I have two of these cranks....

Here is an excellent page that sums up vintage crank pullers, with links to several choices for each type: https://www.kurtkaminer.com/crankextractors.html

It was written by cudak888 on the forum here.

Well, 23.35mm works out to 119/128. Which makes as much sense as a wheelchair made of peanut butter, but there is a fractional inch equivalent.

This is the extractor bolt from a 1990 C Record crank (drive side). Look closely at the threads.

Some of the info in the Headbadge link above is wrong. He says it's the left hand crank only but that makes no sense since both crank fixing bolts are right hand threaded.
