disassembling ultegra hubs

i'm ordering tools and am wondering what size cone wrenches i need to pull apart these 1998 ultegra hubs?

looks like two different sizes, right? 14 for the front and 15 for the back?

i guess i'll need two of each wrench, correct?

thanks!

I have a pair of Ultegra hubs (1997 I think) and I'm pretty sure the front is 13mm on those. But I'm not 100% certain so you should measure.

most front hubs are 13mm, and most rear hubs are 15mm.

the key word there is most.

Hub service

The front is a 13mm. For hub overhaul procedures see http://www.parktool.com/repair_help/howfix_hub.shtml
