    have your read the info on Park tools?

    each bolt a bit at a time or you will round them off. then remove the pre-load adjuster.

    as per the info in the manual and also on park tools.
    "Do not follow where the path may lead, Go instead where there is no path, and Leave a Trail."

    Just used them myself to remove, clena, re-grease and refit my LH crank tonigh, just be aware of the plastic 'washer' between the pinch bolts.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    right onto the cranks set.

    no you will not need a new BB if the current cranks are Shimano Road ones.
    what is the current cranks.
