    My sister has a 05 Jaguar, but no spacers that I can see. I'll have to get pics of her cam on here for reference.

    It does almost look like a bad bearing, or a bent axle. It wouldn't take much play in either to cause that amount of lean. When you take the cam off, you might roll the axle on a flat surface, and see if it has any wobble to it at all. If not, spin the cam on the axle (on or off the bow), and see if it has any side to side wobble to it.

    Yeah, I will be looking into that. I am wondering if the axle is straight myself.

    Default Shim the limb

    Hey Arrow Splitter,

    Try removing the limb off the bottom and then either remove the left bearing support and take out the nylon spacer, or remove the right bearing support and (add) place an additional spacer under it.

    This will work really well for you.

    I have done this many times to get the cams to work out the way they should from the factory.

    Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

    It's raining outside, so there's no better time to work on my bow.

    Default Update

    I removed the cam, and found that the gap between the cam and nylon spacer was do to the fact that it wasn't pushed in all the way. The axle seems to be fine, and there is no abnormal play in the cam left or right.

    I did find that the axle can slide back and forth about .005" with the e-clips on it. I don't think this is normal (is it?) See pictures below, the first one shows the gap.

    I will now try gstudt's solution and report back.

    Don't worry about the axle sliding back and forth. This is fairly normal. Th cam bearing floats on the axle and can only move within the limb forks. Worry if there is play between the limb forks. If it bothers you you can just as a thin nylon washer between the limb and E-clip, but it doesn't hurt anything as is.
