Subject: [CR]Re: cottered crank question

I had a really stubborn cotter pin on the Follis 650B bike. Neither the big C-clamp nor the hammer and wood block would budge it. I finally took the bike to a car mechanic and borrowed his arbor press. That worked, but it was really awkward holding the frame up in the air. The cotter was not usable afterwards.
