I’m going to be putting my new uni together tommorow and I was wondering if you guys put any loctite on the crank arm bolts. I’ve never piece a uni together and I don’t want to mess it up from the beggining so let me know if there is a specific torque setting I need to use or what.
Just grease everything up, put some nice grease on the splines, bolts and cranks then slip them on and do them up real tight. Also what seems to work well is if you smack them with a rubber mallet then proceed to tighten them again it seems to drift them on further. I have taken my cranks off many times now and they come off and go on easy, grease is good stuff
I’ve heard (but had no experience) of the nimbus hub being too tight on one side and the cranks not going on all the way or, are you tightening the bolt? The hub I beleve is tapered so tightening the bolt is the only practical way to get cranks like that on.
