Anyone any tips for removing the bottom bracket cups which are firmly wedged in. I've tried soaking in WD40 for a good few days and tapping around the cups with a metal bar and rubber hammer, but they don't appear to be budging at all.

When I used to restore Burners etc...many moons ago I used an old knackered seat post....lay the frame on the side and knockout the cups on the reverse side that's facing you...just tap away going around the cup like its a clockface IE...12o'clock...6 o'clock...3 o'clock etc...you get the picture...the cup will eventually pop out and then just do the same for the other cup

No worries mate glad to help out.... 8-)

If the cups doesn't pop out straight away just persevere with it they will come out...bear in mind they will have probably been in the frame for some 30+ years....I've had cups that have literally come out as you look at them but again I've had cups that I've had to really wrestle with....

Do the same method if you need to take the headset cups out as well....

Okay, so that's them out now! I followed the method, but this time gave it a bit more welly on the hammer (not too drastic though) which I think I'd been a bit too gentle before. You're right - I don't think they'd been out since the factory put them in. Followed the same method with the headset, but they came out a no bother. Cheers
