Hope these show what you need, Floyd. These are a couple pics of my 2005 ShadowCat SE with Nitrous X cams.

Wow, the guy takes off for a week in the warm weather, comes back and gets a promotion, his 1st act is to ban a good member, whoops, he fixes that, and now he forgets everything he's told us about resizing pics. :eek: Kinda large there BF ! :D

Somehow I just knew somebody would notice. Actually Floyd wants to change a Scepter from Furious X to plain old Furious cams to shoot with fingers. I left the first pic large so he could see what spacers and all was needed to attach the split cables.

I won't make this mistake again. So what do you think about the ShadowCat? Custom made with SE limb pockets to make it 32" long.

One other thing. Notice the "ball" of serving near the loop of the cable. Not the best work and these are the famous WINNER"S CHOICE. Figure what a set costs with a string and four cables. Of course I can't complain a whole lot. It doesn't affect the outstanding performance and stability and they cost me $45, including shipping.

An old Spot Hogg Real Deal. Rest is a GKF Superstar converted to a blade. I forget what make the stabilizer is. Notice the home made STS.

The string stop looks great. Do you like the crosswire in the sight?
I've really been contemplating putting one in one of my Swords.

You mean the vertical wire? Honestly, with my eyes I don't even see it unless I look for it and I'm usually too busy trying to find the target to notice.

Correction though. The rest is a Trapdoor---drop away. I've used it since 2003 and no issues with it--almost. If I have the bow weight too high, as the cam rolls over and slams into the stop the rest will drop. That's why it's on this bow. The cam rolls over more smoothly than the Cat cams.

Barry,
I have taken the following pics, hope I'm not in violation on posting them for our discussion and follow on.

The first pic show the x module on the lower limb. The second pic shows the end view of the lower cam with the x module being on the right side. The first question: if I remove the x module will I need a space on the axle to replace that space taken up by the x module? Second question is the spaces on the outside of the limb and on the axle. The smaller spacer, next to the limbs will need to be reversed and connected to the samller axle? Does the washer, white object need to stay between the space and limb? And lastly does the Martin CG5 cable guard what is recommended for this bow? If so what length does that guard need to be? My draw length is 28".

Please review
Thanks,
Floyd

Good pics, Floyd, but like me you need to resize them (smaller) before posting.

I'll tackle the 2nd question first. You see those little plastic buttons that the cable attaches to? When you put in the shorter axles these are about the only thing you need on the outside of the limb. You might need a thin nylon washer, too but I doubt it. It doesn't hurt if the axle can float back and forth just a tad.

As I explained before, the process is simple. Put the bow in a press to remove limb tension. Remove an e-clip and all the spacers from one side of the axle. Tap the axle in so it's flush with the limb. Now take the button that the cable attaches to and slide it on a short axle and install e-clip on one end of the axle. Make sure the cable groove is facing outward. Now, using the short axle as a punch just tap it into the limb, driving the long axle out. Installing the axle this way keeps the cam from misaligning with the holes in the limb. Now install the other cable button and check for end play to see if you need an additional washer. If not then just put the other e-clipin place and you're done.

Now for the modules. Your screws look easy enough to get at. Just remove the screws holding them on. Set the X mods aside as you won't need them. Then just use 3/8" mod screws to secure the standard mods. Make sure both mods are set to the same draw length hole. No other spacers are needed for the mods.

Then just install your cables. Simple enough?

Now the cable rod. You'll need a CG5 rod. My guess is the 8" length, but you're best off to call Joel at Martin Warranty service about this one. They're not listed in the 2011 parts catalog so they may not have any. In that case any dog legged cable guard will work so long as it's 3/8" diameter. Maybe Scepterman30 or Wisecane has one.

By the way, did Scott ever reply to your PM?

Barry,
I think I have the procedure down. I haven't found any documentation that tells me what the draw lengths are for L stamped on the modules. Do you happen to know?
Yes, scepter30x has replied to my PM.
thks,
Floyd
