Start-to-Finish Predecessor Question



I am having some trouble with the Start-to-Finish predecessor. There is a repetitive section in my Smartsheet and I am trying to have one copy the other in terms of dates, so I thought the Start-to-Finish function would work perfectly but it doesn't and none of the others (FF, FS, SS) mirror the dates from which they are supposed to.

In case I need to clarify, I am trying to have line 83 and 112 to mirror each other in their start and end dates, and I thought 112 predecessor would read 83SF and that would mirror the dates but it doesn't appear to be working. I am clearly doing something wrong but have no idea what. Thank you in advance for any and all assistance.
