|Will 8 spd ergopower levers work with 8spd dura ace f and r derailler? Is Cog spacing the same whether it is campy or shimano? Thanks for the help.|

|The ergo levers won't work with a shimano derailleur, the amount of cable pull is different.
The cog spacing is not the same either.
The old 8 spd DuraAce shifters and rear derailleur were are also not compatible with lower level shimano 8 speed components. In those years, shimano made sure that you couldn't do partial upgrades. This was changed when 9 speed was introduced. All levels of shimano 9 speed shifters and derailleurs are interchangeable.
