Not a cone wrench

which are 13mm to 17mm, and are for working on hubs. You need 30mm or 32mm spanners. Typically you purchase one spanner that has 30mm and 32mm ends. You need just one, as you can use an adjustable...

Yes, the chain needs to be replaced. Not only is it rusted, but there are frozen links. A new 6/7/8 speed chain is $8-$10.

I have an IRD triple

on my 1985 Trek 720. I can't speak to the double, but my assessment of the triple (48-36-24t) is that it is a fine crankset. Also, my bike requires a 127.5mm spindle. Some bikes require only a...

I'll weigh in on a few things

Yes, repack hubs, bottom bracket and headset. The last of those three will be the most difficult.

Brake pads matter. I recommend Kool Stop salmon pads.
