Help Needed: ID Correct Park Tool to Remove Old Schwinn Cassette

Greetings,

Before and after I replaced wheel bearings in my 1974 Schwinn Continental, I noticed a bit of side play in the rear wheel. I'm not an expert but I don't think I can tweak the axle to remedy the problem. I purchased a Park Tool (FR 1.2) to pull the cassette off and take a look but it was the wrong size.

Does anyone know what the the right size tool is for my bike? If it helps, the Park tool I'm referring to looks like a socket with a nut on one end (for a ratchet or adjustable wrench) and a grooved barrel end that fits into the cassette.

Thanks!

Side play is remedied by adjusting the cones on the axle, not the freewheel. It is not a cassette if it is threaded on.

In any event, take your wheel to the lbs and let them find you the right tool. It may require the old large regina freewheel puller. Best to take your bike to the local LBS or Coop, where they have a large vise and the proper tool. YMMV, but free to $10 for the service.

Schwinn used multiple sources for their freewheels. It's probably the early Shimano remover but you'd be best off posting a picture of the freewheel's tool engagement slots, for positive identification.

Thanks gents. I'll pull the wheel off and take another look at the cones first.
