Thanks for all the information! You seem to know rather more about these hubs than me! If I might ask more questions, where do the modern internals and shells fit into all this? Would a modern set of 5-speed internals fit my hub? For that matter, would a modern set of 3-speed internals fit a classic AW shell, or have they changed the dimensions?

Also, if I buy a whole used hub, would I have to lace it to a rim in order to get enough of a turning moment to hold the shell still while I unscrew the internals? If so, I forsee an issue with a 40-hole hub shell in my future....
