|How do I remove the free-hub body ...||cyclinseth|

|from an 8-speed DA rear hub? For that matter, a 10 year old 7-speed 105 hub? Do I need special tools? I consider myself a fairly competent mechanic. I overhaul the hubs once a year and do most other work as well. |
The reason is that my drivetrain keeps skipping and every shop I've been to says that its either the chain or the cassette. NO IT'S NOT. I know what that feels like and it's not it. Plus, I've replaced both items enough times to remedy such a problem. So I'd like to take a look inside there.
Thanks for all your help.

|I'm unsure about the 7-spd 105, but the 8-spd DA does require a special splined tool, accessible once the bearings have been removed on the drive side. It's held on with a hollow allen-type bolt.|

|105 takes a 10mm allen wrench. Stick the allen wrench in the space left when you took out the axle. They're generally pretty tight so don't be afraid to use some force. It's a standard right hand thread.|| |
