Freewheel removal in cup and cone hub

Hey there,

First of all thanks, for all the efforts and knowledge sharing that you have been doing with all YouTube videos. So far you are the best explaining that I found with enough detail.

I am writing to try to clarify how to disassembly the freewheel in a hub with cone cups,
The only information that I could find is using a 10 mm Allen key but seems not my case
Is there any article explaining all the types?

Attached some pictures (I already cleaned all the grease, so don't worry about that :) )

A little bit more information: I am rebuilding/restoring a 2000s road bike (bh gavia) and originally came with a Shimano Sora groupset

Hello and welcome to the BikeGremlin forum. :)

For the Sora hub, you will probably need a 10 mm hex (allen) key.
The thread for mounting the freehub to the hub body should be normal, right-handed thread.

Edit:
Shimano usually marks hub model on their hubs. So, if in doubt and you need to buy tools, it's probably a good idea to Google the service manual for your hub model, since Shimano lists the needed tools (including the needed hex key size). An example:
https://si.shimano.com/en/pdfs/dm/HB0001/DM-HB0001-06-ENG.pdf

Note:
Depending on the hub manufacturer and model, the freehub is most often removed by a 10, 11, 12, 14, or 15 mm hex key.

To dissasemble the freehub mechanism, you'll need a special tool that I don't know where to buy (that thread is "counter," left-handed). My video on that:
