    Basically no. It would be the same as putting Chevy parts into a Ford motor. Roger

    No, the spline pattern or threads and thickness aren't compatible.

    +1. Incompatible.

    Suntour freewheel on Shimano hub is no problem, of course.

    No, but I still have a bunch of Sun Tour bodies, and am always on the hunt for sprockets. Depending on what you have, maybe we can find a way to bring these together so one of can build a working freewheel.
