Nuovo Record RD problem

I've got a Regina 5-spd (13-21) and a Nuovo Record RD I took off my old Fuso. The Fuso had a 6-spd. Campy freewheel and I seem to remember that it shifted through all the gears just fine.

I can't get the chain over to the 21T sprocket at all. I've let the set screw out enough to have the pulley arm hit the spokes and still it won't get there.

Is the rear derailleur bent or do I need to redish the rear wheel? I've got another derailleur I can try but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Well, I went out and put the 700c wheel off the Fuso onto the bike and it shifted into all six gears just fine once I adjusted the limit screws. So I'm thinking it's either the freewheel cluster spacing or the dish of the wheel.

I would just use the Fuso wheels on this bike but it's an old Paramount that takes 27" wheels.

It's usually possible to convert a 27" bike to 700c. You'll need to lower the brake pads, if the slot in the calipers aren't deep enough there may be an adapter kit for that. Or you can replace the brake calipers.
