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.

I can only get 4 gears on a Shimano 7 speed. Shifter lever will only move three times.


Could be just an over-tight cable.. or the limit screws at the gear end over-tightened so that the selector does not transverse the full width of the gear cluster cassette...

Ive a new rear deore unit cable and housing etc. where does the cable secure in the shifter unit? I can see a small metal arch but cant figure where the end of the cable actually fixes


Not a great picture but if you follow the arched groove back from the cable-housing guide it leads to a little hole. THAT is where you stick the cut end of the cable.

Accounting for physical differences, this should get you going.

Shifters don't catch and move the cable


These are among the simplest design for shifter on the market. If the cable is taut it WILL pull. Perhaps the cable is broken, grossly loose or rusted inside the housing.

If the model is incorrect look for yous at http://techdocs.shimano.com/techdocs/index.jsp

New shifters for deore xt x7 delrailer


Shimano make an "EZ fire" which is an integrated shifter/brake lever combination and cheaper than buying seperate shifters and levers.

Shimano Deore LX right hand rear shifter


HERE is Shimano's exploded-view diagram of the shifters, but it really only gives you a ballpark idea of the assembly. You will have to piece the rest together from memory, i suppose. Sorry, i could not find more information for you.

Hope this helps a little,
matt

8speed lx shifter to xt shifter


It depends.. Shifter cables are standard and the same one would work for both LX and XT shifters. If the old cable is full of grime etc, it is a good idea to run new cables - it will give you a smooth easy shift.

I am sure if you check www.shimano.com you will find the manual for your model of shifter. Replacing cables is pretty easy.
