Hi, crank bolt wont catch when i try to put it through pedal into arm. It wont catch the pedal or the nut that comes with it to put on once through pedal.
Is there anything I can do to make the bolt catch?

I think we'll need a picture here.....are you talking about a cotter pin?
If the thread pokes through at all, try turning the nut over - maybe there's a bit of the thread stripped.

Not sure which bolt you mean but could be left hand thread on one side so you need to turn anti-clockwise.
