How much for a new set of limbs for a Diamond Deadeye? 70lbs.
Also what's the best strings for the deadeye. I want to fix this bow up for a less fortunate hunter.

Attached are two pics of the damage to the bottom limb from the Cam. This is all i could find. No hairline cracks or anything anywhere else. Do you think this Limb needs to be replaced?

if the cam hit there you have problems somewhere else but the limb looks fine.

Without the string the cam rotates all the way and stops on the limb at that spot. It was always aligned that far left.

I guess the question is how did the cam "over-rotate" to hit the limb?
Was the bow drawn with the draw-stop pin out?
I think the limb looks fine. I'd take a 1/4" or 3/8" round file and just smooth that burr out.

I wonder if I'm missing a piece then? The cam still rotates that far with a string in it at the moment.

There should be a "draw stop pin". It should be in a hole on the outside of the cam. I circled it in red.
You adjust the "draw length module" and "draw stop pin" for you proper draw length. The information regarding the proper hole position numbers is in the manual. See link below.

Will these limbs fit a left and right handed fear no evil?

My friend just dropped his FNE out of his stand and it derailed leaving the same exact mark in the same spot. The cam over-rotated as stated above and struck the v-notch there but it doesn't compromise the integrity of the limb. As far as I know the limbs are the same on both models, it's just the riser is mirrored when it's cut to make the left handed version, but I'd ask a more competent professional to be 100% sure. But I don't see why the limbs would need to be any different...

The two module screws in the pic above are loose on my bow leaving a little rattle when shot. Can these be tightened all the way up or should they be loose leaving a bigger separation for the string? Would you recommend using the blue Loctite on them?

you might try string wax on screw threads,but they still loosened on me so now i use "small"drop of
blue loc tite.and yes they should be tightend,but not over tightend could strip cam holes.
