Axle isn't hollow unfortunately.....

The plastic support at the other end has been trashed, easy enough to remove once the rest is out but I've drilled a small hole and pumped some penetrating oil inside.

I can't get much brute force on it as the tool rides out the damaged spline.

Just figured the issue, my M8 bolt is a different thread pitch, I think the crank bolts are fine pitch.....will get the pitch guages out in a bit, thanks for the helps....just need the right bolt now!

just hold them together and see if they mesh. if not then measure.
