Next, use a hammer and punch to unscrew the right-hand ball ring
As you withdraw the internal assembly, try to avoid touching the low-gear pawls while the unit is held sprocket-side up, because there is a risk of the pawl pins falling out if you relieve the spring tension that holds them in place.
The right hand ball ring has a two-start thread and must be replaced in its original position, that position must be marked. String or adhesive tape may be attached to the spoke nearest to the letters ' SA' which are stamped in one of the notches on the ring. The whole internal can now be withdrawn from the hub shell. (This is rarely a problem in practice.)
This is a standard right-hand thread, turn it counterclockwise to remove it.
Removal of the right-hand ball ring in the case of the TCW is described the chapter headed To Dismantle the TCW Hub.
In all other cases, the right-hand ball ring, which has a right-hand thread, is loosened by means of a 'C' spanner or a hammer and square-ended punch against one of the notches. If it is required to remove the sprocket, insert a thin screwdriver in the groove of the driver which comes nearest to the opening in the circlip and prise off the circlip. The spacing washers, sprocket and outer dust cap may then be lifted off the driver. There must always be two 1/16" washers. Careful note should be made of their position and also whether the sprocket offset is facing inwards or outwards, as they must all be put back in the same way in order to maintain the original chain line.
