    fixing cassette hub?

    hello. I have an old suntour seven speed wheel I would like to fix, mostly for road usage. i will start with front and rear brakes.
    It has a freehub for 7 speed, like I said. The cassette is held on with the smallest cog as a lockring, so if I fix the freehub, I would put on a SS cog, then use that small cog as a lockring (with copious loctite, but doesnt matter, cause it's a fixed spline...).
    Soo... can I do this without taking everything apart? I had thought of just squirting JB weld in there, but I am afraid of seizing the axle, as well. any special hole to squirt in the JB weld?
    My friend has a tig welder. Can I just weld the snot out of it on the outside? again, dont want to sieze the bearings or cook anything else.

    If I have to take it all apart anyway... well, I'll just go riding instead.

    sorry no pics.
    it looks like this, see the threads?

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    After you "fix" it, where are you going to find a single speed cog to fit on a Suntour freehub body?

    The seven speed greary cog may not work. I know the shitmano geared cog will NOT hold the chain. If this is on a built wheel, I would put some spacers on there and try it as a SS first. That way you will know if it will work before you spend a bunch of time "fixing" it.
