replacing cam trigger wires 6-Jun-2015 At 10:14:43 PM mikllaw
2 random cams from the loaner rack with broken wires

A) the 2 right wires are gone, the 2 left wires have been repaired previously (one stainless wire, 1 nylon)

B) bend the wire near the cam fairly straight and snip it off, leave 4 mm or so to make it easier to remove from cam. To cut the wire, crimp hard and bend the section of wire sticking out back and forth.

C) I've bought a few thicknesses of nylon whippersnipper cord, and mostly use the 2 mm stuff, thicker cord will last decades but may need drilling the cam to insert

D) cut some cord that is long enuff to go from the trigger to the hole in the cam twice plus 30 mm or more, crimp it in the middle to sit in the trigger bar

E) with pliers put a 90 degree crimp in the nylon level with the holes in the cam, when the cam is sitting square to the stem

F) poke the nylon through, check that it's all even. leave 4mm sticking out an dsnip off excess

G) melt the nylon and squish the molten blob flat with a knife

H) Nylon flattened with knife

I) finished cam
