Suntour AP freewheel question

I'm overhauling a bike with a 7 speed Suntour AP (66?) freewheel and the gears have some front to back play (not sideways). Is this normal?

I figured it might be shot. Not a cassette. The bearing are still tight so it's going back on as is with a use at own risk/ needs replacement note (free-bee overhaul). I'm used to seeing these freewheels as one solid piece instead of multigears.
