comment How much “play” is normal in a Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub?
@DavidBriggs I haven't disassembled it yet. I am going to do it at the end of this month.

comment Bottom bracket removal, what is this part?
UPDATE: I applied HD40 and unscrewed the non-drive side without problems with an adjustable crescent wrench (normal unscrew direction, right to left); the drive side is more stubborn, I'll let it soak in HD40 and try again tomorrow, the ridges are lower in this side.

@DanielRHicks thanks Daniel! that is indeed important to know. I was going for the "lets try the standard (non-drive = unscrew right to left as normal) and drive not standard (unscrew to the right)".

Thanks for the tip, I already knnew about the ball bearings, I didn't know of a proper tool for the disassembly, since the outer part is so low compared to any other "normal" nut shapped BB. I'll give it a try with an adjustable crescent wrench first.

Thanks, I'm going to disassemble it any way, but it's good to have this "confirmation".

@armb can you check a functional one? also write the answer here saying what is the normal play of the hub, and I'll accept it.
