[Yak] Shimano B screw and guide pulley drag?

Maybe putting a screw on the other side of the b-screw home will prevent it from
sliding off the stop since the head will have more surface area than the
inserted side of the screw ... so as you screw it out, there is more b-screw
adjustment. You can also try a screw with a flat top.
Given that the screw comes off the stop, I'm thinking that the hanger might be
bent a bit.

Subject: [Yak] Shimano B screw and guide pulley drag?
found an interference between the chain, the largest (32t) sprocket,
and the derailleur guide pulley on my wife's spare bike the other day when I
foolishly looked at it. I believe I would have seen this before, so I think this
is new. the bike is a lower middle class Raleigh mtn bike, low level Shimano
I cranked the B screw all the way in, and while it made it a little better, it
didn't cure it. The screw/stop geometry causes the screw to start sliding off
the stop when the screw is all the way in so trying a longer screw didn't help.
I looked at the derailleur hanger, and it appears undistorted. I put on a new
derailleur, same problem. Other than ignoring it, as
1. it's not a bike I ride, and
2. the interference only happens in in fattest sprocket
I'm out of ideas. Any thots here? Thanks
Cheers from Fairbanks
