How do I determine cassette hub body cassette capacity?

I picked up a very nice 36h Exage rear hub w/cassette body laced to a Campy Dedra rim at a local swap meet. I'm trying to determine what speed the cassette body is - 7/8/9? Is there an easy way to tell - measurement or something?

The cassette body has one thin spline, and the last 1/4 or so is threaded.

Well, 8/9/10 are all compatible. 7 is shorter. But I don't know the measurements. But at least I'm telling you there are only two possible things it could be. And since it's Exage, which to my knowledge hasn't been around in a long time, it's most likely 7.

Measuring from the rear face of the freehub bodies to the outer edge, a 7-speed body in my parts box was 35 mm and an 8/9/10-speed body was 38 mm. You could always borrow any cassette and see how it fits.

Having one thin spline is the standard Shimano design on all of their HG and IG hubs as it assures the cogs can only go on in the correct alignment.

Hey, Tim, welcome back. Sounds like yesterday was tough!
