Cost too much to have a thread put back in, would put this down to experience and move on.

Personally, I'd walk away now.

As for the one kase has listed, I think the seller is a member on here. Worth a PM.

Go to Halfrauds and get a can of Penetrating Spray. It really is better than diesel, GT85, WD 40, plusgas, 3-in-1 etc The notch and screwdriver really works if you're lucky (sound irish but you know what I mean :lol: ).

Keep spraying it all over twice a day for at least a week, maybe applying some heat to the shell first :).

Just noticed, under all the shite in the BB, are those internal splines? If so, the correct BB removal tool and a breaker bar may be worth a try.

Well..... its dead! :roll:

I took it down last night to get it blasted, and there is a crack in the frame. just behind the bottom of the head tube.

So I have now given up. If any one else wants to weld it, you are welcome to it, free to collect, but I have given up.
