If you hold the mech in the highest gear whilst the sifter is in the lowest and then try and shft up, is there resistance in the cable suggesting corroded cables?

have you got the adjustment screws in the rear mech too tightened? loose off the "L" a quater of a turn, try leaving the cable slack and change with your hands to see if it enters the largest cog correctly, that way you know if its cable wear/tension or the adjustment screws!  :)
