    SunTour Powerflo freewheel --> variable spacing?

    I have one of these freewheels and from what I have read, it is variable spacing for accushift indexing.

    Can someone verify? I just want to make sure before I put together the drive train for it.

    I've not seen a Suntour Powerflo, but the Winners, Perfect, ProComp, and Alphas can all be re-spaced by using different spacers between the cogs and having the correct top cog to thread on. Suntour made a handy little gauge to confirm the spacing. You can see it in my avatar and below.

    Thank you much. I saw the websites before, but I am just not that familiar with compatibility in SunTour stuff so I needed some confirmation.
