will the spacing of the first 7 cogs match the clicks on the 8sp barcon. I guess i can put it in friction mode too

When you're setting up the shifting, leave one click at the bottom. In other words, full cable pull will take you into the largest cog, but you don't have another click to possible pull the chain into the spokes.
Proper derailleur adjustment makes this seem like a moot point, but take it from the voice of experience: stuff happens.
