Yes, there is a special Shimano made tool for this purpose but I do not know if you could subtistute the different howwlo bolts for each other. I doubt it. I can send a pic of the tool if you are interested and also check out it's Shimano Number. Regards

Hi all. This is an early DA cassette hub where the small cog threads on to lock the the other slide-on cogs in place. Once you remove the axle there's an 8 splined female bolt head instead of the later 10mm allen head. Is the re a tool made for unthreading this? Or something I can use for this purpos e? Does it, in fact, unthread? And can I then thread on a later freehu b unit to the old hub shell? Any info would be appreciated on or off list. Thanks. Billy Ketchum; Chicago, IL; USA.
