Thank-you for all the helpful responses on mounting vertical vs
horizontal. It has, however, raised some more questions.
If anyone has pictures of a "correct" split AZ/EL setup for a g-5500
I would love to see some up close ones.
Questions that have been raised:
1) I bought used, but believe I have the seperation kit. It has one
piece that screws into the Az rotor to allow the mast pole to go into
it and be secured. However, I do not have a similar piece for the El
rotor to have screwed into it to sit above the Thrust bearing on the
pole. Is there supposed to be two of these? I do have what appear
to be a set of clamps, but I can not figure out how to attach it to
the pole at the top.
2) What all should be included in the seperation kit, maybe I am
missing a part, but can not find a good pic anywhere or a parts list.
Thanks, I appreciate the "noob" help!
