Original Bendix rear hub is apart and clean, awaiting arrival of properly sized tires. Fenders beckon my gentle paint prep.
Frame.... Can't get the G@&[`^] crank apart! I can't even get the pedals off! Everything's been soaking in break free for days! I'm going to degrease with carb cleaner and try P.B. Spray next. I tried gently heating with a propane torch at one point, to no avail. I've tried a pipe over the wrench and gentle beatings (lol), nada!

A most empathetic, HELP
