problem with moments

hey just wondering,does anyone else have problems with the crank but loosening very quickly.today every 10 minutes i had to tighten it up i might try some lock tight in it tommrow are there other soloutions?

Are they new?

If they’re new a torque wrench may be all you need.

Ya go for 35 ftlb

cough more like 50 with loc-tite cough

of course you’ve checked they’re on the right way round…?
Just do them up real tight and make sure they’re well seated. You don’t need a torque wrench.

all i know is with my old pos uni the left crank (the one i put pressure on to mount) would loosen itself in an instant no matter how much you tightened it, but one small split-washer fixed that. never had trouble with the other crank, but i never put it through the same type of abuse so stands to reason.

I’ve had the same problem with my right crank for the past year or so.

My advice is don’t worry about it, it doesn’t really matter and doesn’t loosen all the way.

But if you fix this problem, do inform :stuck_out_tongue:
