Will this work (in the event that I can't fix my old 7 speed
thumbshifters)? IIRC 7 speed and 8 speed have the same cog
spacing...

About the same. It works fine for me and some people I
know...

It is a little off. 7sp is 3.1 mm and 8sp is 3.0 mm. You
could just put 8sp spacers into your 7sp cassette, since the
cogs are the same. Just use the r-der screw to lock out #8.
