how do you take your bow apart, do you need a special press or do you take the string off like you would a recurve. also do any of the modules need to be marked to make sure they go back together properly.

Oneida bows are very easy to work on. You dont need a press to work on an oneida. A set of wooden dowels are all that are needed to change a string. The modules are marked and yes they need to be put in correctly. Pm sent.

Richy,

If you want to change strings, get a couple dowell rods/couple broom handles/just about anything the same diameter, and, at full draw, have someone insert them from the side in the area between the cables, the top of the inner limb, and the bottom of the outer limb. This keeps the bow drawn when you let it down and will let you swap strings very easily. If you're looking to do more than that, take the weight off of the bow by turning the limb bolts, alternating top and bottom, 2 turns each until you get the weight down.

As far as the modules go, they should be marked with a number or a letter indicating the draw length and let-off for that module. They will be the same module in all 4 cams, and as long as they are put back in the cam correctly, it won't matter which module came from which cam. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. There's a lot of guys on here that can talk you through doing just about anything to this bow and are more than willing to help out!

Ask Joe for a video... it covers all this info... I managed to break one down and put it togther by using the Dealers Manual... but the video was a real eye opener...

its a very easy job.. take lots of pics, bag everything up and lable it and you will be fine... if not Joe can walk you thru it... I had never worked on a Oneida and really couldn't even tell you how to string up a Cam bow... but I tore mine down painted and P.C. the bow and had it back up and running in 7 days from the time I got the bow...

Not very hard at all and the only pain will probably be removing the cams if you have a newer bow like an Osprey or Black Eagle.

I havent found a puller that works as easy and as I said in a pm if you can find another that works great. We do have them if you need one. Good Luck
