This 7spd. freewheel came on a bike I am renovating. It moves quite a bit on the hub and makes noise so i guess either the freewheel is borked or the hub is. I cant see a way to remove it though - any thoughts?
It is on an older Zeus hub (probably 80s) and the axle is solid.
looks similar to a UG so two chain whip tools is my guess
Ok, improvised with one chain whip and a hammer! Now am stuck again - any ideas on the below?
I believe you need a splined tool such as a Park Tool FR-4, but count the splines/notches before buying anything.
You may need to disassemble the hub for the tool to fit, unless you get the thin-walled Phil Wood version.
Hi - thanks for the help - apparently that is the correct way to do it!
I am impatient and this freehub was buggered, though, so I dismantled it by using a punch and hammer to loosen the lockring (clockwise), took the main assembly off, then used some visegrips to unscrew the freewheel (counter-clockwise).
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
