|Some time ago I posted a query on removing a seized Chorus BB cup.
Last night I finally managed to remove it after trying various options, including soaking in penetrating fluid, using a freeze spray, etc.
The answer turned out to be cutting slots in the cup, and then using a thin screwdriver as a chisle to break out sections of the cup.
This did the job without damaging the threads on the BB shell.
Thanks to all those who offered advice: it looks as though cutting it was the way to go.

|what I had to do. I had a friend cut mine out with a pencil grinder. Lesson I learned, even your second stringer needs routine maintenance.|| |
