Actually i was looking at Dee Max ITS4 system pictures on the net....
I remembered mine had a major difference with them...
In the newer models the pawl & spring system in which each pawl has an individual spring a tiny coil spring underneath it. like these in sun Ringle
But in my Deemaxes that are a 2007/08 model there is a single circular spring with sloted pawls like this
Should it be like that or the previous owner has changed the whole freehub body ?
And some other questions ?
1 - in the second system with a circular spring should the two ends of the spring overlap like the one shown in the pic when installed on the hub ? Or no thats only the neutral position and on the hub the diameter extends round its slot to male the spring more tense therefore the two ends wont overlap ?
2 - In the Deemax ITS4 what would exactly happen if i take out a pair of the pawls ? would it cause any damage to the hub ? or no simply the engagement pitch would be twice ?
By the engagement pitch i mean the angle that the cassette would revolve free before a pawl or a set would engage. What do you call that in English ?
