Q:

ProForm Whirlwind Dual Action--what size crank puller do I need?

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your Proform cycle. Almost any crank puller on the market is going to come with adapters to make it fit any kind of crank. I have heard (but never seen) of pullers being sold for standard or metric threads. If that's the case, you want a puller for standard threads. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using Manage My Life.com.

Any part that pivots can seize up and prevent the pedals from being able to spin. You will need to take some stuff apart until you can find the seized part. The pedals will unscrew from the crank arms. You will need a crank removal tool to remove the crank arms from the shaft. The covers will need to be removed to get further into the machine. The covers are held on by screws on the left and right side of the machine.

The manufacturer does not have a repair manual or instructions for the machines as they typically only recommend factory trained techs work on the machine.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks Jackie S for your response. The links were very helpful. It appears that the Park tools mentioned in these links is exactly the tool I need. I have found a Bike shop locally that carry this tool. I will be going by there today and check it out. BTW, I finally was able to remove the L & R covers with some difficulty, but I got that far. Thanks again for your quick response.

You will need a crank removal tool to get the cranks off of the shaft to access the bearings. The best place to find the crank tool is at a bike shop. On some bikes the arms will come right off, on others it can be a problem and the tool is needed to remove them.

Yes, thank you also Wade B. I bought the tool this morning and it was so easy to remove the crank. My only problem now is that I can't get the pulley wheel removed from the area where the bearings are located. There is a washer with two grooves on opposite ends that doesn't want to come out. I tried a pair of needle nose pliers to fit in this grooves and tried turning it to see if it would spin outward, but I believe this is keeping me from being able to remove the shaft which is attached to the pulley wheel from the Left side of the bike. Any ideas how I can remove this washer?

Update! OK, everything is out. Will have to wait until my parts get here. The bearings were all shot and the ring that held them in place was totally in pieces. Thanks everyone for your help.
