|How do I remove a 1998-99, 7-speed, 14-28 Tourney 30 cassette from a Sovos, 135 mm spaced hub? It's nothing like a current 9-speed.
The inside of the freehub body is about 24 mm and the Park Campy cassette tool (BBT-5) fits on an inner spline. I believe that the fit is coincidental and that this would be for disassembly of the freehub body.
Outside of this is a flat area, still stationary, with 2 holes with about 31 mm center to center. A tool may fit these holes but I have seen nothing like this.
Now we are to the free ratcheting part. There is what looks to be a lock ring with about a 46.5 mm OD with 8 notches on the outside of the ring. This looks like something that you would drive off with a screwdriver and hammer.
I have not tried forcing anything. Looking for advice first.

|Find a freewheel tool that will fit the splines. If it was my bike, I wouldn't risk my campy tool for this task.
Stick it into the splines and re-install the quick release to hold it in place (important). If you have a sturdy bench vise, chuck the freewheel remover into it. If you don't, get out your biggest adjustable wrench. Try to break it loose by turning counterclockwise. On a bike this new, it should come loose pretty easily. The gear cluster and ratchetting mechanism will come off all in one piece.
|Yes. Found picture on Park site. Thanks. (nm)||TFerguson|
