I am getting a dullish clicking sound that sounds/feels internal from the rear that happens consistently when I am pedaling only, about 5-8 clicks per pedal stroke. The drive train is old suntour, friction shifters, and 6spd. So far this is what I've done:
1) Repacked BB (then decided it was coming from rear)
2) Disassembled freewheel, cleaned and oiled
3) #2 failed so I replaced the freewheel (with a new one)
I was thinking about rear hub bearings, but I don't get the noise when I coast, only during pedaling and the wheel spins fine. Maybe that'll be #4 as it won't hurt anything.
The other option is the RD, has it gone bad? Help please and sorry if this has been done, I really have looked around here (hence #'s 1-3).
