Yes, the FD is a triple FD, meant for a a crankset with similar rings sizes to mine.

Replacement for ancient Marzocchi XC500

So I've finally come to the conclusion that I will not be able to save this old fork. I need a replacement for my hardtail, which is mostly hooked up to my bike trailer these days. I don't need...

I use auto oil when I'm too lazy to pull apart and grease. I actually like it better on a brake caliper application because I find grease attracts too much road grit. I just oil a little more...

Honestly, for the amount of $ you're going to drop on drivetrain components, it would be pretty easy to buy a used low / mid-level road bike with everything you want on it.

Given the number of issues you list, I think another bike would be your best solution. Especially frame alignment. Old 10 speeds are dirt cheap - find one with fewer issues.

Definitely a shorter stem will help. Sounds like the whole ensemble (handlebars and shifters) is too far forward of the contact point of the front wheel.

I've seen this "milling" done with a bastard file. That's how I'd approach it, but none of my bikes are worth that much.

So my drivetrain knowledge is almost exclusive to past-generation square-taper components, but don't you automatically need a longer bottom bracket spindle for a mountain BB shell? It's 73mm vs. 68,...

Maybe I shouldn't wade in, but I don't think anyone would agree that a strong correlation between play at the rim and bearing wear automatically implies the need for a new axle, cones and bearings. ...

I think both of the obvious culprits have been covered, and it may be a combination of both tension and chain wear. It sounds like your tension is just a little too high.

I've heard that Barnett's is the most comprehensive, but I'm not sure you can buy the book without taking their course. I'm self-taught, and have found all the info I needed on the web, FWIW.
