I have been working only on my Hoyt bows for the past 4 years.
Am getting good at it with Javi's help.
I now have a couple of friends who want me to take a look at their bows. They are both single cams.
Please no "singles don't need set up" answers
I think I can pick up single set up quickley if I can find some basic info.
Anybody know where I can find??

Some basics, but each manufacturer specs will be needed, so tell your buds to get on the phone and find out all they can about their bow before you start. IE some give BH preference over ATA, visa-versa, etc, etc, cam timing reference marks, etc, etc.
Buss cable;twisting (tightening) adds Lbs, DL, BH, brings ATA shorter and the nock point down, rotates the cam toward the string.
String; twisting decreases DL, ATA, increases BH rotates cam towards the riser.
A general rule of thumb is 2 twist of string to 1 twist of cable to maintain cam orientation.
