Beware Park Tool CCP-44 Incompatible with Shimano Octalink
#1
Purchased this last week and went to pull the crank off today. What I found is that the threaded hollow on the non-drive side is too shallow to fit both the bullet and the threaded extractor nut. With the improvisation, I was still able to remove the non-drive by using a small, thick washer. Certainly not recommended though. I believe I saw Shimano makes their own crank puller for Octalink, so that may have to do with the profile. It was to sell their own tool.

Just want everyone to be aware so you don't find yourself in this same situation.
