Shimano HG-50 10 on an 8 speed.
I want to put the Shimano HG-50 10 11-36t minus 2 sprockets on my bike. If I use 8 Speed cassette spacers will this work. The sprockets would be as follows
11, 13, 15, 19, 24, 28, 32, 36
another options would be to take a 23t and 26t sprocket off good condition hg41 cassette I have giving me
11, 13, 15, 19, 23 26, 32, 36
Would this work in theory and practice.
Thanks Alex ... I'm new to this.
It would fit on your wheel. It might not shift very well.
What shifter are you using?
Check out sheldonbrown.com for a ton of technical information, including stuff on cassette spacing and cog widths. I think the thing that drives whether this will work okay or not is what your center-to-center spacing ends up like.

Will probably work but shifting may not be optimal - ramps won't line up.
What about taking an 8 speed cassette, add the 36 cog and remove the smallest cog? That way all but the 36 would have the correct ramps etc. You might need a different lock ring for a 13. Your LBS might have an old 36 cassette and lock ring you could try - I would think the wear on a used 36 wouldn't be bad, good enough to experiment on.
