Well after setting the low limit to *just* prevent chain rub and keeping the high limit loose, I first attached the cable normally, over the top of the bolt. Adjusted the tension with barrel adjusters but no go. So I attached the cable under the bolt, to allow the cage to travel more. Still not enough.
The alternate cable routing *might* have worked if the chainrings were pinned and ramped. But either way, the FD was hardly pushing the chain onto the next ring.
Anyways, from memory, the old FD looked like it had more mechanical advantage as compared to another bike's 10s 105 FD. This is why I ask.
