What is this called?

5 posts in this topic

Had a bit of a mechanical today and on closer inspection found that this part had cracked and partly come away from the crank.

I obviously need to order a new one but am not sure what its actually called or where to order it from, any help?

It's for a Shimano hollowtech

Hi Sean its like an adjuster to push the crank into position on the axle.

Not a locking nut.

Yep it's the Crank Bolt that goes in the left pedal to fix it.

Got it now.

Also fitted a new bottom bracket and it works a dream.

Sean, I've only just seen this thread, The end cap is used to pre-load the bearing, the round plastic tool allows a very very small torque to be applied using your fingers before clamping the two crank arm pinch bolts.

Should you need the installation checking, don't hesitate to call in as I have all the workshop tools for fitting and removal of b/bkt, crank arm and a torque wrench for torques as low as 7.5 Nm.

Alan.
