ok this is a little hard to explain in words but the important thing is to make sure the chain is on the biggest cog, pull the cable through the deralier tight and fasten. don't pull it too tight however. you may need to fine tune using the h/l screws but if it was in tune before then it shouldn't need too much adjustment.
