hi, is it just out of shape? kinda too slack in there or catching the bearing cone as you rotate the axle? I've often used a pick or such like to 'tease' it til it doesn't catch on anything, beyond that, once the cassette is back on it won't go anywhere. 8)

If you can measure the internal diameter I'll have a look to see if I have one.


Internal diameter is 30mm, see below picture for the bit that i need.


That's the outer diameter and stays the same (inner diameter of of freehub body though)
The inner diameter of the dirt shield, I know of two size. M737 and more modern replacments used different ones as I found out. I had to swap them over.
17mm ?
