How I removed crank w/o special tool.
#1
1. Using drimel and sandstone I made a slight deep in the center of crank axle.
2. Put bike down on non-drive side.
3. Using rope hang your bike about 2-3 inches high above floor. Hook up rope on crank sprocket as close as possible to axle.
3. hold punch in the center of axle and hit it by hammer.

deep in the center of axle prevents punch slip.

I made a punch from a bolt and used vise-grips to hold it.
