Thanks foe reply,

Hybrid mode with 2 sp, problem is in standby msfc. Probably I need to upload ios
using xmodem if I don't have Pcmcia for the new msfc?

It sounds like you're replacing only the MSFC? Assuming that's right, the best way is:
1. Get a PCMCIA for the new sup (or just move the existing one).
2. Make sure you have the IOS on a TFTP server.
3. Remove the card from the active Sup and put the new one in the slot.
4. Copy IOS onto the new card via TFTP.
5. Put the old card back into the active Sup.
6. Boot the new MSFC from the new card.

If you can't get a new card but the IOS fits into the bootflash of the MSFC, then
1. Install the new MSFC
2. Move the PCMCIA card to the standby sup
3. Boot the MSFC from the PCMCIA card.
4. Copy the image from the card to MSFC bootflash
