Alright just purchased a used complete back wheel with a Shadow V1 hub.... got it in the mail today to find this:






And all this fell out when I was taking the wheel out of the package...

If they are the pawls then the cassette wont work. Go to a bike shop and ask them to look at it.

Yeah I think they are the pawls, theres like 4 spaces where it seems like these 4 pawls would go into... I have all 4 of them, what do I do with it?

take the whole wheel to a bike shop....

it looks like they need putting back in the hub and tightening the non drive side to the hub..

But i am in no way experienced enough to give you advice...

So as said before... Take to a bike shop

Where did you buy this wheel from??
Some guy on eBay... yeah I'll probably just take it to the bike shop... just one question, if the pawls fall out.. what does that mean?
