    Where you being empathic and respectful when you said:

    "These are the critical facts LOL."
    "I read the same F&%$ing chart dude"
    "Yes... those are the basics... Check"
    " none your patronize-the-novice trouble-shooting applies because, shocker, I'm actually experienced with **** as you are."


    I keep being surprised how sensitive the snarkiest, rudest people are to the smallest perceived slight.

    Thanks. Turns out your suggestion was the one that did the trick. That cable bolt washer has basically an L-bracket on it which must be oriented aft-wise or else it affects the derailleur movement. That's not a quirk I've seen before and the 7900 doesn't behave that way. Thanks.

    Addendum: As I indicated, I am willing to be wrong and I did in fact get it to work. Just throwing that out in the interest of fair play.
