Subject: [CR]Japanese derailers

I have an old Univega Super Sport built up as a "utility" bike using a Campy NR front derailer. The frame has brazed-on cable guides on top of the BB like Italian frames often do. I wonder which Japanese der I might substitute [which would be operated by pulling down on the cable]. All the Suntours I have lying around require the casing to extend all the way to the mechanism. And does anyone have one cheap?
