Just to validate your reply.."nothing ever goes smoothly"...
I split the case, but chipped a tooth off of my shift cam. OUCH, there goes a hundred bux!!!! ;-)...the adapter for my crank insertion tool was the wrong size on the crank end. (wrong thread size)
The GOOD news is, I went to a local machine shop and was able to have a new custom adapter made for 60bux...same price as the factory original which they DON'T make anymore!
So it looks like I can FINALLY send the top end out for boring and sizing for rings..woo hoo!!
As soon as my shift cam comes in, I'll be able to put this bad boy back together.
Maybe, I'll even get to ride it...HAHHAAHHAHA
