    Default Stabilizing a crack

    While preparing for my Cougar lll Elite cam change, I found that I've got a crack at the bottom of the cam fork, about 5/8" long, on the front side ( target side ) of my 5H 08 carbon limb. I say 08 because it was a bottom limb and has the sticker on it, ser# 08. Since its going to be a nitrous shoot thru bow, Im wondering if I can stabilize the crack/splinter by gently sperading it open and letting an epoxy ooze into it and then clamping it togather again. I can see movement with a magnifing glass while twisting the forks, but those forks won't be twisting any longer. Tell me what you think. What type of epoxy or super glue would work best.
