I broke the thread from the central axis, of the crank, when I was trying to screw the bolt. I supose it can be fixed, and rearranged. Any tips, how can I make the accurate thread again?
Thanks in advance
I hope to have my reconditioned bike on wheels after all

If the re-treathing doesn`t work quite well, you can try to fill it up with loctite, and hope the best :wink:

You can also get threadless bottom brackets.

The (supposed) best one is the Velo Orange Grand Cru.

YST make a cheap one
