    Default Cable doesn't line up with module when bow is drawn

    I have had this problem since I got my 2007 Jaguar back in 2007. It's just worse now. When the string is at rest, you can see that the cam isn't totally vertical like it should be. When I draw the bow, the cable consequently doesn't go into the module properly, which messes the serving up sometimes and right now with the F-5 mod set on the first of three pegs, I have very soft, non-stable back wall.

    The string and cable are new, (the pics are a preview) and ATA and BH are correct. The bow has 55-70 lb. limbs, set at 61 lbs. It shoots great, but I would like the cam to be positioned correctly so it feels right.

    Any suggestions????? More pics can be provided, including pics of the bow drawn if necessary (compliments of the Super Shooter). Attachment 6686

    Brad, how does the idler on the top limb line up? You do know you can twist one side of the yoke cable to straighten the idler out, right. OK, I notice that this appears to be the Dyna-cam. Yu could try removing the cam and reshimming it with nylon washers so it's closer to the right fork on the limb. If that doesn't help try swapping the limb around top to bottom. That's about all the options you have. If neither of these helps..............

    Next step? Call Joel and be ready to email him the pics.

    Could the axle have "wobbled" and created a larger hole in the cam resulting in the leaning I see?

    The idler lines up well. It is a Dyna-Cam. Shimming didn't seem to help either. I haven't tried swapping the limbs around yet, but the limbs have been replaced a couple times for other reasons and this problem is still around.

    I don't think the limbs are the problem, since they have been replaced.

    Maybe, I'll have to look at it, but as I've said this problem has been around even before the limbs were replaced.
