schwinn traveller 3 restoration

hi every 1
i just finished a paintjob on my schwinn traveller 3 im not sure what year its from but i think its 1979(code on headbadge says 0489). So im tryin to put it altogether. I got the crank and all its parts(i dont know what its called) removed along with the headset from a local shop. To put it all back the guy is charging 125$ so i figured id buy the tools and do it myself(which seems the cheaper alternative). So far i have installed the headset and the handle bars so thts not a problem. I think i will be able to put the cables and the derailers and the brakes.I wanted to kno what tool will i need to remove the casette from the rear wheel ( because need to remove the metal plate behind it ), if its any help it says shimano UG on it. I found many casette lockring remover on amazon but wasnt sure which is compatible. Also will i need any special tool to put the crankset ,hub and the adjacent parts back on ? I have many everyday use tools like wrenches ,spanners etc,so thts not a problem
any help is appreciated

A cassette lockring tool will not work - you need a freewheel remover. Maybe this one if you have a UG freewheel. http://www.bikeman.com/TL7203.html. Or you could pay a shop to remove it. You can put he freewheel back on by hand - it will tighten when you ride the bike.
If you didn't remove the bottom bracket, replacing the crankset will likely require just a socket wrench - perhaps 14 or 15 mm socket. Depends on the crankset.
Posting pics here will be helpful. If you did remove the BB, then you'll need more tools.
Check out the Park Tool site for detailed information about bike repair and adjustment.

Looks like a basic loose balls/cup and cone, Square taper BB. You will need a wrench to fit the fixed cup, pin spanner for the adjustable cup and a lockring wrench for the adjustable cup lockring. A set like this would work but may be hard to find. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=sugin...1t:429,r:3,s:0
Your axle uses nuts instead of crank fixing screws - 14mm socket?
I can't say for sure if there are different kinds of UG freewheel removers. The Bikeman site indicates that one size fits all. The shapes of the remover and your freewheel look the same.
You would need a chainwhip to hold the freewheel in order to loosen it and a (large) wrench to turn the remover.

No chainwhip needed to remove a freewheel, or wrench if you have a vise. Put the tool in a vise, set the the wheel on it and turn the wheel like a steering wheel to crack it loose. You may need to use a QR to hold the tool in, but not usually on the shimano stuff.

I've got one of those. I'ts my first real road bike and it has been good to me.
The crank arms slide on to the square tapered axle.
I usually slide them on and give it a good wack with a RUBBER hammer. Then tighten down the bolts as much as I dare.
The lock ring on the left side of the BB (bottom bracket) shell is what keeps things tight after you've adjusted the BB play.

Have fun and ride on...

This is not a bad strategy. The torque spec on those nuts is 25 to 35 ft. lbs. of torque. That's a lot more than most people can exert with a normal socket wrench. Get a torque wrench and find out- more crankarms are ruined by not tightening them enough.

Keep in mind that if you are replacing the chain you may need a new freewheel.

That steel plate is a spoke protector. Some would say that a Varsity isn't a Varsity without a heavy chromed steel spoke protector.

If you're afraid of ruining the paint, then just put the arms on and tighten them down. As I said above, they need to be tight.

Well, go ahead and buy the chain whip, but it isn't going to help you remove a freewheel.

Agreed. Disregard my previous advice about a chain whip.
