+1 it what on my bike .
ok , it was just a thought . have you try the 12 -1 bearings and see how that work out ?
meaning you put 11 balls in each cup instead of 12 .
sometime the cups (pedal ' s body ) is different in size from front to back . so maybe 10 bearings in one cup (side) and 14 in the other .
It would be best if you took your bike to a shop or co-op and let them handle it . Also it would help us here if you show some pictures so we can help you better .
Yes , I have seen it a few time . Shimano thought was you didn't need to adjust or remove that cone ,without replace the axle . All adjustment is done on the non drive side .

If it new then I would return the wheel (hub) to the seller for a replacement .

Back in the early 80's Cannondale did the same to one of their touring model I remember right it was the T1000 .
I agree with alcjphil , your front derailleur is too high , lower it alittle more and you do need to adjust the high screw on it also so the chain doesn't jump the chainring .
You very welcome .Yes they do have a lot of freewheel tools . And a couple cassette removing tools . The one I refer you to in my other post is the one for Shimano 's cassettes . As with the BB tool...

I agree , I wasn't sure because it is a dura-age cassette and if the spacing would be the same . Thank bill for the correction .
A mid size cage would work too if wanted .
"The crankset is what I believe is the original stock...I'm assuming it is Shimano exage trail 28 x 38 x 48 biospace 175mm (by the way, what does this all mean?? can someone break it down for me?) "...
Yes I remember them too .
I have broken both Pedro's and Park's levers in my day .
The Bicycling Guide to Complete Bicycle Maintenance & Repair for Road & Mountain Bikes is a good one to start with .
If it was brake rubbing you would see more wear on the side wall of the tire going around the rim .
Vise Grips will help in removing the nipple but the nipple will be destroy in doing so . Any nipple and/or spoke for that matter should be replace if you can't get the nipple to turn .
