I decided that I was going to try and straighten out my idler wheel lean last night. Loosened the limb bolts up and removed the cable. Then thought crossed my mind that I should check and see how well the idler wheel spins, so I took the string off and gave it a spin. The wheel does not spin freely. I removed the wheel from the limb and slid it onto the axel by itself - the axcel fits good through the bearing and the bearings spin smoothly. Upon closer examination I discovered a couple things: first, the spacers on each side of the wheel are the same diameter as the hub and fit so tight between the wheel and the limb that they cause friction; and second on one side of the wheel the bearing is no pressed in exactly flush (the bearing sticks out from the hub a tiny amount). I'm not sure if this should be fixed or exactly how to fix it. A person could sand the spacers down until there isn't any friction on the hub, but considering that there will always be side pressure on the wheel caused by the cable going to the cable slide, the hub is always going to rub on the spacer on the right side. It seems that making the spacer thinner will end up moving your wheel to the right side. I'm thinking that the best fix would be to sand the spacers down substantially, then get some sort of shims that are barely larger in diameter than the axel so that they would put all of the side pressure on the inner raceway of the bearing. I'm not sure if this is worth messing with. Any thoughts?
Another thing that I noticed. I have more than enough clearance from fletching to cable and string. Is there a way to adjust the guide rod on the 2009 cheetah? The rod itself is straigh. It goes into a housing that has does not appear to have any sort of adjustment. Anybody have info on this?
