Replacing limbs??

Post by bobcattrapper » Wed Jun 17, 2020 1:12 pm

I never did it before and I can’t find any utube videos how to do it. I sent the whole riser in with the limbs once and woodys did it. So what all do you have to do to replace em your self? Thanks!

Use your stringer to remove bowstring.
Decock the stringer which relaxes the limbs.
Remove limb strap bolts and limb retaining bolts.
Lift limbs from riser. Install new limbs. Replace limb bolts and limb strap bolts. I use blue Loc-tite on these bolts and tighten them down firmly. Restring, set brace height and you are good to go. This is how I did mine hope it helps.
Take care

I would heat up each bolt before trying to remove them. They are installed very, very tight and you might strip out the allen head or your wrench end. Use a long wrench for more leverage.

Beat an allen socket into the fastener like it owes you money. That will ensure that the hex goes all the way in and will help to break the loctite bond.

Great advice, and remember to get some good ball end allen wrenches! Don't cheap out on your tools, a very wise man told me this long ago, and it pays for itself every time!
