Subject: [CR]tandem eccentric bb question

The Jack Taylor tandem I have here as an eccentric front bb.. which is the usual thing.

I need to move it--adjust it--and I can't figure out how to do it. There is one hole in the left side fitting that appears to be there for the purposes of adjustment, but I can't suss out how to use it. I loosened the bolts that keep the bb tight, then I tried using a punch and hammer to move the fitting, but no luck, it's solidly in there.

Any suggestions? I really need to be able to adjust the bb at this point, or we can't ride the bike.



Concerning Carlos Kleiber one of the greatest of all post-war conductors:

The glamour often associated with a conductor's life held no appeal for him; he preferred to stay at home in Munich. He once told Leonard Bernstein: "I want to grow in a garden. I want to have the sun. I want to eat and drink and sleep and make love and that's it."
