I've just installed new cams but they don't rotate up into the casting the same:

Should I correct this by filing away some of the irregularities in the casting on the right hand one (in pics) or leave it alone? I don't know how far the cam is supposed to rotate up.

Thanks.

The photos are awfully small, but the casting on the right has the correct position of the cam.

The one on the left is installed incorrectly - it's rotated too far back. The plunger should seat against the detent on the bottom of the cam to keep it from rotating back too far.

Actually, I haven't put in the plungers yet. Busy making my 3/4" by 10 thread chaser today.

But now I know that when they're installed, the cams won't rotate up that far. Thought I'd better check before I screwed up. Learning as I go.

Thanks for the quick response.

Even found a Hobie kayak dealer in the next town over today, who's willing to put my parts orders together with his so I won't have to pay shipping. Made my day!
