its campy ten speed. I replaced part of the cable and that helped with the tightness I was experiencing but I still have this problem. The derailur is adjusted well for all the other gears but cant quite drop into the final gear.

Did you adjust the limit screw?

Could cable be too tight? Shift through all the clicks with the little tab; there should be just a little slack in the cable compared to in the other gears.

If wheel is not in correctly, could be problem.

There are a number of things to check.

As said, the limit screw might be it.

Also, check that the cable slides smoothly through the housing.

Check that the cable is not too tight.

Check that the deraileur hanger is not bent.
