There is a little play in it, when I hold the crank it can wobble a few mm side to side. Do I need a cone wrench to tighten it? If so, what size?

Thanks

    Its a US bottom bracket, if there's play in it the bearings are shot

    If you want to tighten it for the mo, use an adjustable

    Ah right, thanks. The bearings don't feel rough or worn, just when I hold the non drive side crank at the pedal and push forwards and backwards, it moves approx. 2mm
