Shimano freehub dust cap diameter
I"m replacing a freehub on a set of wheels that takes a stock shimano freehub. From what I recall it took a 9sp LX freehub body. I bought a replacement part that supposedly fits 8/9 speed cassettes, but when i got it it looke different than mine, and the diameter of the dust cap is smaller so I can't assemble it.
Does anyone know what part I might need, I need it to support 9sp and have a "larger" dust cap diameter.
I have no idea why there are so many model numbers for a shimano freehub. I wish I could find the magic decoder list of all of Shimano's XT/LX/Deore freehubs.
