Hi,
I have a Centrpoint Amped 425 and have a litle gap about 3/64" on one side of the rail.
Is possible fix that? Sorry my english I'm portuguese.
Thank you in advance for your help.

With the crossbow cocked, lay a level across the rail-stock and cams at 90 degrees.
This is to check if the cams are level. If the cam on the left tilts up on the rail-stock
side, this can cause the string to be high in that area.
If this is the problem, adding 1/2 or full twists to the top of the "Y" cable section on
that side will level the cam.
If that is not the problem, then the limbs are tilted upward at the cam end on that side.

To make any adjustments, the crossbow will have to be put in a press.

Wishing you all the best.
Take care.

Thank you for your help. Already try add 2 twists to the top of right cam then of left cam with no results.
You can see the timming marks and the angle of the string I think it is correct.
Is possible align the limbs?
Thank you.

In the submitted picture in Post #1, it is the left cam that needs the adjustment.
This is when holding the crossbow in the normal shooting position.
Another check I do off and on is when the crossbow is cocked, measure from
each axle to the nearest rail-stock edge. One is checking for a different limb
deflection or a weaker limb. The stronger limb will pull the weaker one closer
to the rail-stock edge.
I always check the timing and cam level when the crossbow is cocked as this
effects the flight of the arrow.
To align the limbs, machining in the limb pocket of the riser would be required,
which could weaken the riser.
In the submitted picture in Post #4, the crossbow shows level. Look at each cam
that will be under the ends of the level. The cams may show level as long as they
are either touching the bottom of the level or the space between the bottom of
the level and the top of the cam is the same. This check is done when the cross
bow is cocked.

Wishing you all the best.
Take care.
