Subject: [CR]Help regarding removal of everest freewheel from rear campy hub

Hey guys, Got myself in jam. Was trying to remove a freewheel from a wheel with a campy hub. The body of the FW appeared to have a typical 2 slot type fitting so I used a suntour freewheel tool which seemed to fit pretty well. I clamped on the QR so the fit would be snub and as I was turning counter clockwise using a large wrench, the FW gave or so I thought. The slot of the FW ended up being damaged (slot widened by 75%). The FE didn't budge. Now I can get the darn thing off. I removed the cogs and tried to undo the outer plate that retains the bearings but this didn't budge either (didn't have the right tool for this though).

Any bright ideas would be appreciated. Don't really care to save the damaged freewheel but would like to preserve the rear hub. BTW the spokes/rim are still attached to the hub.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards, Wilson Lem San Francisco
