If you are trying to run a mech and shifters from different companies and want them to index but they just won't try this!!!

Where the inner cable bolts to the mech undo the bolt, then put the cable on the otherside of the bolt to where it would normally go.

This has the effect of changing the cable pull given by the shifter.

Therefore in my case, trying to run shimano ultegra shifters through a campag veloce 9 speed mech over a sachs maillard block, the bottom three cogs indexed okay and it got progressivly worse until the top of the block where it indexed again but one whole cog out meaning that top cog couldn't be accessed. Changing the cable clamp position over to the inner side of the of the clamp bolt and it worked miraculously!!!!

Try it.

Nice to know. Thanks! Got a Suntour X press shifter and Shimano stuff, but never tied so far. Will remember your advice when I do.
