Before I left this morning another parcel arrived with a very small and yet such a crucial part. The "Conical Nylon Washer" is here! 8)

Excellent write up of your work. It's an inspiration even to a hardened old bike fettler like me. Looking forward to the next instalment!

The 'exploded' image of the rear mech is very useful. After seeing all those bits and pieces I think I'll keep mine in one piece!

One point though - should you use grease on freewheel pawls? I thought they needed light lubrication to prevent possible sticking?

Really don't know... I can tell you that I've done it before to other freewheels and they all still work. I believe that, after installation, a couple of turns and those pawls are completely grease free...

A friend from another forum made me a "indecent" proposal and I said yes! :lol:

I needed a couple of tools for the bottom bracket cups and one to adjust and hold the pedal cones. I've sent him a sketch of the tools with all the measurements early this week and today I got the tools in the mail.

Image

They are still raw:
Image

I need to get a file to clean those edges. The "big" tool works great. I've open the BB lock-ring with it already! the "small" key still needs to be bent twice and in fact I can't get the cone to fit. I believe after the file work it will fit nicely.

This part of the project was really exciting! 8)

The right tool is essential for the job. Ive laid out cash in the past for specialist bottom bracket removers etc.

This morning and using the new tools was time to take the BB apart.

Here's a non drive side view.
Image

The tool fited snugly, did a little push and the lockring came loose. Removed the cup.
Image

Removed the spindle and bearings but the plastic sleeve was stuck...
Image

It came out in the end along with the right side bearings.
Image

The plastic sleeve is a bit bent but I think it's going to work anyway...
Image

to the cleaners!!! :lol:

Did the cone tool this morning also. Here it is. It needs to be bent twice and some file work as it doesn't fit the cone yet.

Image

1st bend.
Image

2nd bend.
Image

That one was close... it's difficult to do that without a proper vice. After 30 min of file work it was ready.

Image

Here's the pedal with the cone already in place. It still needs the locknut to hold it in position. With a regular set of cone wrenches you can't hold the cone and tighten the locknut. The cone is completely hidden inside the pedal body.

Image

Image

with that little tool it all becomes easy!
