This should be loose enough to take the bottom end of your cable off and twist it. I would do 5 twists at first than more it necessary. At 60lbs you should see the numbers your looking for.

    Your right Spiker thanks for correcting me. That would mean he would have to twist both sides. Keep the timing equal.

    Thanks Hutch. I looked at the specs online here and it says my Silencer is supposed to have 32" ATA. Got home tonight and measured mine. It was 32 1/4. I backed the screws out as you mentioned and then added 5 twists, then 2 more, and finally 2 more to each cable. ATA is now dead on 32". Tomorrow I'll be able to get to a scale and after work have daylight to croney it again. I appreciate your help. Thanks!!

    Sorry I forgot which bow we were talking about at first. But Spiker corrected me. Also check your draw length to see if that changed.

    Don't forget to retime the cams after twisting the cables.

    I can guarantee his DL changed by at least 3/8" with 9 twists added in the cables.

    I am pretty new to bow set up. How would one check the timing on the cams and then adjust them?

    Thanks Rock. If I discover that one cam is rolling over before the other, how would I go about adjusting that timing?

    Measure in from the end of each mod 3/8" and put a mark on the edge of the cable track (be as precise as possible)so the mark can be seen as the cables roll into the mods.

    If you find the top cam is advanced, put twists into the cable that connects to the outer cable post on that cam. Recheck timing and repeat as needed. if the bottom cam is advanced, put twists in the cable that connects to the outer cable post on that cam.

    Timing these cams is relativley simple and once done, you shouldn't have to do it again untill you replace the string/cables.
