Here's the culprit. 14/16/18/21/24/28. It's all held on the freehub with a threaded lock ring. The smallest gear (14T) has a built in spacer that snugs against the lock ring. Thanks to Bill's informational link, it appears this is one of the first hyperglide setups from the late 80's. Hope this answers everyone's questions. I have a 13T that will fit it and I'm going to try that when I get back after the holidays. Hopefully it's the answer I'm looking for. Thanks for everyone's help and great information.
