Coaster hub help (Mark IV, Schwinn Approved)
Does anyone know how to disassemble a Mark IV coaster hub? I've gone through the Sturmey-Archer and Bendix sites online and don't find a match to my hub. A lot of them appear to be approached from the drive-side, usually by removing a circlip. My hub doesn't have a circlip that I can find. Some other hubs I saw have a brake arm on the left-hand side that lifts off after removing locknuts, etc. The brake arm on my hub won't budge.
On my hub, there is a thick ring on the drive-side that has a single notch. I was thinking maybe a spanner of some sort may be needed to wrench it off.
But, if anyone has experience with this hub, I'd appreciate hearing from you!
