I have a 1984 Raleigh Record Ace; it beeds a new bottom bracket. Is one of the threads in the shell a left hand thread and if so, which one? I have a new component on order but before I damage something removing the old one, it would be useful to know the answer. Thanking all in advance.

Thank you. I had an inkling that one side would be LH. I couldn't find anything in Richard Ballantine's book.

If you don't have the tools a local bike shop will probably do it for less than buying some. I worked in a bike shop bitd and changing old BB's could be real grief stricken.......as could removing old freewheels and corroded in cotter pins. Lol
