Has anyone here rebuilt a Campy Chorus freehub?
If so can you tell me if the wire spring that holds the 3 pawls in is reusable?
Also where to buy these?
Thanks,
Mike

Don't know for sure but I'd say yes, branfordbike.com. Call Campy monday and ask if you can wait.

Yes, I have rebuilt many of them. And yes, they are obviously rebuildable. As for where to buy the wire spring, I am guessing you are talking about the spring holder? If yes, you should have gotten one with your hub. If you didn't, ask the person you bought your hub from. They should have it. If you are still in need of on, call your local shop and they can order one for you, or like someone else said, branford may have it also. If you are looking for the wrap spring that actually makes the pawls move, your local shop can order one or branford may have them also.

No this is the newer type with just 1 ring/spring
It does not require a holder like the 3 spring style.
It is part FH-RE114 in this picture. Thanks though & I will try Branford.

My Record 98 hub has three coil springs - one for each pawl. The pawls are not held in place by a spring setup - they rest in their grooves and I just grease them heavily when I reassemble. One of my coil springs got chewed up (operator error I think) though I kept things going no problem by stretching the spring. I tried to order new spings via my LBS, and they contacted Campy USA, who sent them new springs for free (not really a part that is for sale). I'm guessing they salvaged the springs from a hub that was trashed for some other reason.

I keep those springs and pawls on the shelf. Get in touch if you ever need them again. The newer hubs use a retainer spring to retain the pawls. Wrapped dental floss is good to keep the pawls down for installation in the hub.

Hi & thanks
Actually I need the part if you have it.
I would like to buy 3 of those retainer rings/springs
1 for me, 1 for my pal & 1 for spare in case I blow the install ;-)
Please let me know if you.

I have the springs that Kerry was talking about, not the ring that you have. You will have to be really super ham fisted to damage that ring. I doubt if one will ever fail. It is so overbuilt that I can't see how you can damage it. I would have to order them and your lbs can do that. FW9831 is the QBP part # and the retail should be $1.50 each. Give that info to the LBS if you insist on purchasing the part. I don't feel the need to stock them.

Ok thanks although I am not sure we are talking about the same ring?
This wire/ring is super fine & easily deformed feels like a .009 guitar string in thickness
I will try to locate it.
Thanks again
So DON'T deform it!!!!! n/mcurlybike
