Spindle Style Crank Not Fitting Into Hollowtech 2 BB52 – Bike Forums

By Adam Korn

Fascinated to hear some ideas on this puzzle. Setting Up a Funn Hooka 1x crank right into a BB52 Hollowtech 2 Bottom Brace in a 68cm Bottom Brace shell. The BB52 features 2 x 2.5 mm spacers as well as a 1.8 and also a. 7 spacer. I mount the 2 x 2.5 mm spacers on the drive side. 7 take place the non drive side. This offers ideal chainline for a singlespeed.matching directly up with the gear in the rear. There disappear spacers consisted of with the BB52. I install the cranks, tighten the lock nut as much as establish the non drive side crank on the splines and snug up the screws on the crank arm. Yet the cranks are not established versus the Bearings, there is a spell a 4mm space. I am perplexed, person I got the crank off claimed he had it on a bike with a 68cm BB covering. The crank is marketed as compatible with hollowtech2. That crank is available in a longer pin dimension for 83mm Bottom braces however the space should be much larger because case.

I’m lured to find some more plastic spacers to place behind the bearing mugs yet after that what concerning there being very little thread for the cups to hold on.

I suspect “the individual” who you purchased the crank from had actually a different established then you think or his was additionally not rather best. When you installed the RH arm/spindle did it seat against the BB cup/spacers? If not after that something was incorrect from the start. If not why really did not it. Not all 1 item pins from all brand names share the very same resistances as well as the fit can be troublesome with combined brand established. Does the brans supply it’s own BB? Is that what you have? The MTBR reviews seem to suggest some QC problems on at the very least one production/shipping run.

Yes the Right hand pin seated fine versus the cup. 83mm BB covering shouldnt I expect to see a lot more than 4mm of a space? From my restricted memory of wrenching on an ALL-TERRAIN BICYCLE frame, I don’t remember any kind of BB spacers at all. Maybe the original FUNN bottom bracket simply has 2mm larger mugs. According to the Funn directions for their other crankset the 4 spacers you have must function. Loosen the crankarm pinch bolt and hit the arm with a mallet/piece of 2×4 to make certain it is seated. Or take the crank out as well as gauge the unsplined spindle length to see if it matches the bb size throughout the outside of the bearings. Or return for refund. Also tried tapping thee arm onto the pin with a club but I can see its seated appropriately anyway. I determined 2 Sram ALL-TERRAIN BICYCLE cranksets (73mm BB width) the pin with the left crank bolted up limited both measure 100mm. So also placing in 7mm of spacers, 68mm of BB plus the 4 spacers with the BB kit, on a BSA base bracket you are still 5 mm also narrow. Call Funn as well as figure out what part you are missing out on. Most of the brand-new ones I saw marketed included their own BB’s to match the covering it’s going in. Possibly their outside mugs are larger than what your own are. Comparable to hollowtech, however you better be certain what their procedure is for installing the arm on the non drive side.

I am going to replace my hubs this weekend break on a 2013 Wesco trailer. I ordered the correct dimension centers, brand-new slip on brake blades, brake caliper, and birthing pals. After whatever can be found in last evening I saw my trailer has a kind of very lube pins. Should I keep the super lube spindle or get rid of the oil fitting and make use of the bearing buddies? Likewise considering that it is a sort of extremely lube spindle should I have order unique centers for this design spindle? I understand I can do the job simply uncertain I obtained the proper parts. Super Lube spindles and/or Super Lube centers are better than a Bearing Buddy, due to the fact that they assure the grease obtains pushed completely via the internal bearing and then out the external bearing. Greasing from the back to the front similar to this does a much better task than trying to go front to back like the Bearing Pal does. You don’t desire oil pushing past the internal seal you desire it coming out the outer end of the pin.
