Front Derailleur - Cable Too Tight to Shift Up
I just tuned (or attempted to tune) up an old Peugeot I got off craigslist last month. Full Shimano SIS (A350) and in great shape. Everything is great except the front derailleur which I can not get to shift to the largest cog. I've adjusted the limit screws appropriately but when I shift up it tensions the cable so tight that the shifter can not click into the next index and immediately falls down to the small ring.
I've tried reconnecting the cable at it's slackest setting and still no luck. Any advice?
