    If it's an old (like, really old) Dura ace I think they had a different cable pull ratio. Check on Sheldon - there's a different cable routing that *should* make it work with new stuff.

    7400 series and older Dura Ace have a different pull from the rest - will only work with DA shifters
     
  5. Yes he's right, pre-97 Dura Ace, before it went 9sp

    You can use a newer non-DA derailleur with old DA shifters by different cable routing, *but not old DA der with newer shifters* like you're trying to
