Sorry, misread the original post. Now realize you want to remove the entir e freehub not just the cassette. Re the freehub however. If it is a uniglid e it will NOT accept later freehubs. I tried that and it will not fit. Thus , all the work trying to adapt later cassettes to the Uniglide free hub. Edward Albert Chappaqua, New York, U.S.A.
