I have been further investigating the japanise wizardry of suntour.

my question, do I need a 135 spacing on the rear hub for microdrive?.

also anyone know the spacing difference between 7 & 8 speed?

Thanks to all who have been helping, & even the people reading the thread!. 8)

yep Sheldon has the spacing from cog to cog. I have both so can get pictures. but basically the 8 speed is the 7 speed with a 28tooth cog added to it.
and on here I've posted the lengths of the freehub bodies, they are specific to each type of cassette
