Campagnolo interchangability chart

Is there a chart available that shows which Campagnolo components can be mixed together? I know model years affect compatibility with shifters, but are there other things such as chain rings being threaded or not threaded, bolt circle size, BB bearings and cups, etc. Looking to down grade from the Nuovo Record group to the more modern stuff as I need lower gearing. Getting old ain't easy nor is it pretty.

If you have Ergo levers with the LH side being non indexed (but having many steps in it's range) then that side is rather open for compatibility. Some cases of RH incompatibility might be solved with a Shift mate. Andy

8 speed is an orphan group - the hubs are only compatible with 8 speed. 9/10/11/12 all used the same hubs. If you are looking for modern 11, Chorus had a break point in compatibility in 2015. In the current groups, they claim Potenza and Centaur are not compatible with each other or Chorus and above.

You need to be mindful of old tapered bottom brackets vs powertorque vs ultratorque. And, with the modern groups, ultrashift (Chorus and better) vs powershift.

I am running 8 speed chorus on one bike with a stronglight impact crank (on Shimano BB) with 34/50 rings. That got around the gearing issue of a 42/53 and 13-23 cassette as the bike had previously been set up (it's a mid 80s Pinarello)
