I have a pair of old wheels with the 7 speed hyperglide freehub (Shimano FH-MC-10 Alivio Parallax).
I want to upgrade to a 8 speed freehub, but the spare one I've got is of a different interface to the hub.
Image of the one I've got on the wheel:
Are these not common anymore?
Is this something to do with road vs MTB?
Also, would I have to re-dish the wheel?

For some reason I'm vaguely remembering MC18 but that was in a different context. I'm not certain that this will fit, you'll need to research.
Any reason you particularly want 8sp vs 7sp ?
In any case, you'll need to compare your hub (wheel) to the chart and see which 8/9sp freehubs will fit onto your hub. And yes, will need to dish/re-dish the wheel to do it properly. I'd consider another wheel which has a slightly newer hub format.
Apparently the Parallax stuff was good gear though, for it's time..
