It's been a long time since I heard the word "freecoaster" but the word "ACS freecoaster" comes to mind. ACS meaning "American Cycle Systems" . And if that's what you are talking about, then the answer is no. You cannot adjust this .
I think it was the "driver" portion that worked on Bendix 70 and/or76 hubs made in mexico that were common on Schwinn Stingrays (USA built).
If you had a coaster brake bike and you wanted to make it into a freewheeling bike, you could buy this ACS freecoaster driver and put in the place of the Bendix piece and your bike would freewheel instead of stopping when you pedaled backwards.
Those were around in the late 80's if I remember.
