I'm attempting to reassemble my bicycle after it was shipped across the US. All is well; except one pedal cannot be screwed back in and it's because the inside of the pedal arm screw hole is stripped -- the pedal itself seems to be fine thread wise, but I cannot screw it into the pedal arm. I don't drive, and I live much closer to a home depot then a bicycle shop; I'm wondering if anyone has any repair suggestions? I bought a wrench to take the crank and arms off, but apparently I need additional tool too get it off; this was just an attempt at having more leverage to try and and screw the pedal in from a top. Anyone have any DIY suggestions? WD40, thread repair of sorts?
UPDATE: IT IS NOT COMPLETELY STRIPPED; JUST THE FIRST 3 - 4ISH AT ENTRY POINT. I PICKED UP SOME EPX CYCLE GREASE THIS EVENING, GONNA GIVE THAT A SHOT TOMORROW RE: SUGGESTIONS. CHEERS
