1. Put the bearing cover on the NDS.
2. Install the spindle from the NDS - you may need to use a rubber mallet to get it in. I have a plastic dead-blow hammer I use.
3. Install DS bearing shield, wavy washer and spacers. (I suggest you not start with more than three spacers)
4. Install DS arm. (I think torque on that is about 41nm, IIRC - I keep the install manual in my tool chest for reference)
5. Install NDS arm.
Here is the one caveat: If you install too many spacers on the DS, the crank will not spin freely.
If you have to remove the crank, yes, you need a special tool - the Cannondale KT013. It costs about $20, if I remember correctly and your Cannondale dealer can order it for you.
For installing the SiSL, cool down the spindle and heat up the bearings with a hair-dryer. This works miracles and makes installing it very simple. Tolerances are quite tight on the spindle/bearings. (for installing, the last thing you really want to do is use a hammer to force it in place, especially with ceramic bearings. I'm currently working on a tool to pull the spindle in and out.
Best tool i've came across to remove/install bearings in the bottom bracket is from enduro.
Not a big fan of the parktools removal tool, you shouldn't use a hammer to remove bearings.
The KT013 is a must have for taking off the arms, if you also want to change the spider, the KT012 tool is required.
Use grease on the spindle, it makes installing a tad easier and should prevent the bearings contact-area from rust with a creaking result.
I would put the spindle in the freezer for 30min, heat the bb with a hairdryer just before installing. The spindle will slide right through, no need for a mallet.
I use no spacers and the wavey washer on my caad9
Be sure the small washer is on the crank arm fixing bolt.
Bulkpijn beat me to it.
Installing a SL crankset into my EVO frameset.
I have brought the hollowgram EVO spider.... but looking at the Cannondale manual is there also a EVO specific lockring for the pressfit bearing? I was planning to use the standard SL version that came with the crank set?
I pulled a set of hollowgrams straight off a Supersix HiMod and put them right on an Evo with no changes. Just make sure to 'pick' the rubber dust seals off the bearing so you see the bare bearing in the frame.
Thanks for the advice, looks like the evo is going to be ready just in time for the rain to stop in the UK!
