Hi all,

Bottom bracket on my old Claud is creaking too much so time for a refurb. Only problem is the adjustable cup is on tight - does anyone recognise this type and the tool needed to get it off? It's two square notches

I have tried some long nose pliers and putting a flathead screwdriver in and whacking - but can't seem to get enough torque on it so now reluctantly looking for the correct tool for the job... or some other ideas?

Thanks

That looks unusual, how about a two pronged freewheel remover?

Many thanks, that looks like it will do the trick. Just ordered Unior 1672 - a bit cheaper than HCW11

Have you tried the crank-side cup? If you can loosen it off a turn it will take a bit of pressure off of the adjustable cup, should make it easier to remove.

Thanks, I really need something just like that to be able to get the leverage - but that price!

This thing is seized and having no luck with the park tool which just slips. All ideas welcome

clamp the tool on to stop it slipping off.
