    Did Shimano ever make an XT with no B screw, Missing ??

    I've got an old Gary Fisher I'm building up for a friend.
    So I'm adjusting the rear dérailleur for the lows gears, and the jockey wheels are
    bumping on the cog.

    Whoah!, next thing I notice there's no B Screw to adjust.

    any one ever see an old Deore XT with no B screw. Can't tell if it's
    missing or was manufactured that way.

    Mine has one. People back the screw completely off when aligning the derailler on their own, and forget about resetting the b-screw. I see them backed out a lot, often loose, and sometime missing, going on three decades now. Your LBS should have a jar of bolts/nuts/screws/washers and should have a few in there that will work. Or old derailleurs they'll give you for a few bucks that you can strip parts from.
    I will suffer no butt-hurt fools!
