Spinlock XTS ceramic cam sticks open

Recommended Posts

Replaced all the cams on my Spinlock XTS clutches with the upgraded ceramic cams a while back and have had a couple of the cams become sticky where the spring won't keep it down.  No amount of flushing with water or mclube will get the cam to move without sticking, even tried a little wd-40 as a last ditch nothing to lose effort.  The spring mechanism is fine, it's the cam itself.  A post mortem autopsy doesn't seem to reveal any significant corrosion or other obvious problems.  Anyone had similar problems and found a solution other than replacing the cam?
