Can someone advise me to the overall length of the PD4/2 cam sleeve and the length of the shortened PD7/2 Nut..
Also how much travel does the ESA with the above mods have until it bottoms out , I assume its around 1/4 of an inch ..Thanks for all replies, Bill

Know Thy Beast says if converting a C to the D ESA, the C nut can be shortened to 23/32" overall. (I just bought new.) All it has to say about PD4/2 is that the D sleeve is shorter than the C sleeve, and since the sleeves are hardened, a new D sleeve, PD4/2 will have to be purchased.
I don't know what "the stroke" is, somewhere between 3/8" fully closed up, and 1/4" I imagine, but whatever, not so great that the two cams can go "head to head" and jam.
