Does anyone know how I remove this freewheel?

I can't figure out what park removal tool is required. Is there something more that is necessary?

Park FR-1 freewheel removal tool. Other than that you'll need a vise or a good size crescent wrench to hold it.

Thank you. I was making this more complicated that it actually is. The two spots for a pin spanner on the top were what was confusing me. I definitely don't want to take apart the freewheel, just remove it. :-)

Just Google "HG20 remover" for lots of sources, go to Video results to see the procedure.

Thank you. I know how to remove a freewheel, just did not know which Park Tool to use.

Turns out it was a FR11. My LBS had one and helped me remove the freewheel.

The search I suggested serves both functions, and as you said you were confused I thought that advisable. The proper tool is the FR-1 - the FR-11 may work but is meant for cassettes and BB's.
