    :D Good luck and apologies for argumentative tone @Señor_Bear.

    Well, let's wait and see what is actually required before starting any more handwringing about the lack of T47 facing and chasing tools...

    First you spout twaddle that it won't be threaded. Corrected on that you start assuming it won't be chased. Which one of your ten posts on this thread has had any basis in reality?

    Indeed. Possibly more assumptions making an ass out of somebody?

    It may come threaded but you'll need those threads chasing before you install a bottom bracket and to do that you'll need someone with the T47 tool. They are very very rare.

    WTF? Shouldn't the builder of any custom frame be chasing the threads after welding/before delivery, particularly if they are supplying direct to the customer rather than a shop.

    Which I can only assume is the standard thread.

    You could look up the specification and see what the standard threading is (47x1.0mm) and then no assumption would required.

    I may not have picked the best bit to quote tbh, reshimming the hub isn't really relevant to your issue.

    Maybe If you hover your mouse over the blue writing and click the left button you will be taken to the 4 page discussion about the hub, which would be easier than repeating all of it here?

    By all means take it apart if you have the time and inclination.

    @swmlon Have you already tried injecting oil or sprayable grease into the gap between freehub and hub body to try and 'rehydrate' the existing grease to free it up? Why you are continuing with attempts to disassemble it, probably damaging the NDS bearing in the process, when it's probably unnecessary is puzzling.

    (As was suggested in the link to the cyclingUK forum I posted above... https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.ph­p?f=5&t=136251)

    ...But I'd query whether you need to remove the freehub body;

    a) as you have it at present you can relubricate the freehub body bearings, free off sticky >pawls etc (put lube between the RH seal and the RH bearing)
