Hmmm........That looks like a Campy Equipped Peugeot from the mid 80's (A Victory?). Specially as I seem to see a Campy style skewer adjuster there with a chromed head and wire loop. So we're not dealing with Heliconatic hubs if that is the case. You will need to refer to Campagnolo hub maintenace procedures then which I suspect is not as unusual as the parts coming from a Helicomatic.
The hub on the other hand could still be French Maillard (700 model, most likely) but with most likely, English Tthreading. Maillard FWs are pretty rugged and could survive many years without internal overhauls and just flushing/cleaning and repacking with grease. Some people just go ahead and replace the whole block completely with new cogs too if internal things like the pawls and springs wer out, as NOS Maillard FWs with cogs are still very affordable.
