You should be able to use a square taper crank puller on those. If you're trying to remove the BB to is will probably require some specialized tools since it is an old cup and cone bottom bracket. Also, don't dig into the BB unless there's something wrong. They're much more complicated to reinstall properly than a cartridge bottom bracket.
