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!
