OK, getting more than a bit confused here. Please excuse the noob-ish question. :oops:

I've got some play on my D-A WH-7850-C24-TU rear hub, so I'm looking to make a simple and small adjustment (i.e. won't be pulling apart or overhauling anything). What size and how many cone wrenches and/or spanners do I need for adjusting the hub (front and rear)?

Heres my problem: the techdoc shows a 17 mm spanner and a couple of allen keys, but in connection with replacing the freehub body (which I'm not going to do). Sheldon talks about two 14mm cone wrenches. What about the lock nut? I also read somewhere that D-A hubs need the flat cone wrenches for everything.

I need to buy the wrenches, so just trying a bunch of them until I find what I need isn't practical. I'm hoping someone could give me the correct types, sizes and number, so I can get what I need and adjust the damn thing. :D

Thanks for reading!

A quick google search of the rear shows it looks like a standard 17mm cone spanner and 4 or 5mm allen keys should do the trick if you need to adjust the preload on the cup & cone bearings. If you're unsure about what I mean about adjusting bearing preload, there are a lot of resources you can look at including Sheldon which you've already discovered. If adjusting the preload doesn't change anything then you can look at the free hub.
