Uniglide Cassette Disassembly
Hi guys, I've got a question regarding an older style shimano uniglide cassette (the one with 9 splines). i've managed to dig around the net and find out how to wrench off the cassette unit (used the chain around the bottom bracket and wrapped it around the largest cog, then used the chainwhip to twist off the smallest cog).
once the first cog was off, the other four cogs slid right out along the splines (but i'm unable to separate this little group for some reason).
anyways, the axle of the wheel is a solid rod and once i yanked that out, i can see bearings inside.
now my question is this.. how the heck do i remove that freewheel/racheting mechanism from the hub itself? i want to get inside and have a peek at the pawls.
hope that made sense.. haven't got a camera handy, otherwise i'd take pics to help explain.
