I bought a new silver Centurian Super LeMans in 1976. Got a rear derail upgrade to the then new Cyclone derail when I bought it. Rode the heck out of it, and it won a campus relay race twice, with a...

Yikes. Listen to that good woman. I'd still be inclined to think it is a spoke/rim issue rather than the hub.

I'd post a picture but the freewheel is on a bike and pretty dirty right now, so the pic wouldn't show well. The teeth look exactly like those on the next to the smallest on the Shimano you posted. ...

I had the same clicking problem with a couple of SunTour freewheels and eventually deduced (without taking them apart) that they were rocking on the pawls. Funny to see that Sheldon and I were...

Albion just to clarify, the Blue Loctite is used on the outer bearing race/retaining ring threads, which hold the outer freewheel body and the inner body together. The "cone and locknut" are usually...

I agree that the axle can't be broken, but the hub itself can be bent at the freehub threads in a hard hit, just enough so the freehub wobbles but it wold never touch the axle. I have also seen bent...

As Johno59 says above, freewheels wobble, and no doubt yours always wobbled, so I would look elsewhere for the noise,

and leave the freewheel alone- it looks barely worn.

If you don't use the 30-tooth very much, you'll have good luck with Sunrace freewheels, which come as 14-28 or 13-28:

​fine. If it doesn't show up when ridden it's not a problem. You could never bend the spindle no matter how strong you are.

It's not that hard to straighten with a wood or hard rubber mallet. Just don't get too agressive and do it a little at at time.
Done it on a number of my vintage rides.

Overhaul the bottom brackets.



Rotate/move the fd clamp to the most efficient position. You can also try to bend the chainring(s), but that can be difficult.
