how to overhaul maillard 700 course super freewheel
Yup, youve seen it, i want to overhaul the maillard freewheel on my mom's 1987 marinoni , it is the original component but has seen pretty much no use, it just needs to have it's bearing greased and the sprawl cleaned and lubed.
i dont want to breakthe thing so i am asking here how to pop it apart !
it is 99% that model of freewheel, mine is 6 speed thou.
ps it's already off of the wheel and it was a ***** to remove, broke 2 freewheel tools doing so the proper way with a vise. thanks god for warranty !
Mostly you don't service freewheels. Usually it;s just a clean and lube. Run WD-40 or kerosene or other cleaner through the back and front gaps and spin it until it comes out clean. Dry it off and add a light oil to the gaps.

You'll need a freewheel vise, a pin spanner, and a couple shots of whiskey (or whatever you're preferred nerve calming medicine may be.)
Remove that lockring/cone and be prepared for about 200 tiny bearings to come rolling out. Don't lose the micro washers!
I like Slash's method.
