I really appreciate all the help. The BF C&V community is just fantastic. A guy interviewed me today for a piece he's writing about cycling, for a local sports magazine. He asked how I got into road biking and I told the story of how I rescued an old bike, and got all the help I needed to restore it from the BF C&V forum. So we'll see if he mentions us. (I told him to spread the word that we love fly-by vintage value inquiries! )
Hope it helps. I hope you get those working too.

To clarify...

Make sure the left/front shift arm is in the down/relaxed position when setting up.

I assume you know how to set the limit screws on the FD?

I'm not trying to doubt your intelligence or know-how...I was just kinda vague with those setup tips.
Good night...and good luck
