Don't really know about the Hayes adapter. I'm guessing that ANY 8" adapter for another Marzocchi (minus QR20)will fit. The QR20 is a wider front hub, so the special adapter is necessary for the proper offset.
Regarding the shifter problem. Don't try to take apart a Shimano shifter, there are about 200 little springs, pins...etc. in there you'll NEVER get it back together.
I would get a good degreaser or solvent, and just spray the heck out of it. What happens is the grease inside gets dried up and/or dirty. This causes the spring on the ratching part of the shifter to cake up. The solvent will clear that out. Problem is then you have to let the solvent dry out before you can then lube it!
This may or may not fix it. If it doesn't, it's new shifter time!
