Problem... found movement in the axle of the rear hub
purchased spanners and tightened up lock nuts
BUT....
found that spanner (parktool one 17mm ) is caught between locknut and cassette so can't tighten up enough and so still have play
So is the specific one from shimano thinner so to allow propper tightening or am I missing something?
I'm going to blow the bank on a new build ( within reason ) NOW DONE!!

    remove the cassette.

    but it is easier to strip the hub down and tighten the cassette side cone and lock nut up fully then rebuild the hub and set the disc side last.

    Cheers
    Thought I could get away with out having to do that. A trip round to my mates house to get the cassette tool then...
