It's no big deal, just slide things back so they're centered and equally spaced. Basically there's extra room on the axles to account for the coils on the springs getting longer along the central axis when the lobes are retracted.

Do you think you should see what the other side looks like before coming to that conclusion?

Contact BD with this exact picture. My guess is they can tell you what can be done...

Nope. It's a common occurrence and standard procedure when dealing with torsion springs. Happens on other brand cams too, but they tend to self-center better.

+1.

Pretty normal for camalots. I think mp gets a thread like this 3 or 4 times a year. I just thump the cam against my palm till they're even.

Just played with it, she's good to go! Aric you where right, I just had to re-center everything, On my way to take a 30' fall to test it out!

Thanks everyone!

3 days ago and no reply since... RIP buddy.



In other news my #1 C4 looks exactly like this after taking a solid 20'er on it last week. One of the lobes is actually a little bent because of how it was placed (stem facing out and down at a 45 degree angle). Going to contact BD to see what they say before I go try another 20'er on it. =)

Sounds like it's probably no big deal. Might not hurt to clean it though...
