I found a wheel I'd like to use, which has a 7-speed, early 90s vintage Deore XT hub. It's basically unused so far as I can tell. I'd like to use it on my 8-speed, 2002 vintage, high mileage Acera bike. So I want to swap their freehubs. Anything subtle I need to know?
Any dishing change?
Any reason I should bin the 8-speed and get a new one? It has a lot more miles on it, but is that a problem?
Should I keep the left bearings from the Deore and the right from the 8-speed or do anything else clever?
