I need help with an overhaul of the Shimano freehub that comes with the FH-HG50 hub (part no 30H 9801). How many balls go into the inner and the outer race? What size should they have?
I have already disassembled the freehub and counted 48 ball bearings in total. They fell out of both races simultaneously so I cannot say how many were in either race. Some look larger than others and I am unsure what their nominal size should be.
Edit: After servicing the freehub, I can confirm the correct size and number of ball bearings is 25 1/8“ ball bearings for each race, ie 50 in total.
