That particular vendor doesn't usually deal in Maillard parts. I did a quick search and they don't appear to have anything by Maillard in stock at present.

If the tire is a 27" x 1 1/4" tire, that's a problem - a 27" x 1 1/4" tire corresponds to an ISO 32-630 tire. If your rim is for a 700c, that tire has a bead seat diameter 8mm larger than your rim is...

If the freehub measures roughly 37mm in length, I'm fairly sure that means it's an 11-speed freehub. I'm pretty sure you'll thus need two standard spacers if you're going to run a 7-speed cassette.
