What rear derailleur are you using? Is it a Sachs from the same era as the shifters? So far as I know Sachs rear derailleurs from that era had their own cable pull ratios and were not compatible with either Shimano or Campy derailleurs.
I am not sure what the spacing was on 8 speed Sachs freewheels but considering 8 speed freewheel hubs propensity to bend axles I would only want to build a 8 speed freewheel wheel using a Phil Wood freewheel hub.
