Howto Installing A Motor With Photos - 22-February-2011, 18:13


1: Put up wall bracket/pole vertical with a spirit level on a south facing wall or as close to south as possible.
I added a photo of a T&K mount as this one is more stable in high winds,whichever bracket you use make sure it is vertical on all sides

2: While motor is still on floor adjust your elevation/latitude markings on the motor to the same as your latitude where you live, if your motor markings have only elevation makings it is 90 minus latitude= elevation on motor, mine is 51.5 latitude if it was elevation markings I would have put it to 38.5,yours will be different to mine. I use to find my longitude and latitude. Tighten up as this will not have to be adjusted again.

3: Attach your dish to motor while still on floor making sure the dish bracket is in line with the vertical line on the motor as this is very important. Tighten up bracket to the dish as you should not have to adjust this again. And also loosely tighten up the nut on the elevation on dish.

4: Put dish and motor to wall bracket and point roughly south then loosely tighten up.
5: Run your cable from your receiver to the motor.
