   Thanks much for the picture although I'm still a bit confused. A lot 
of folks say I need the separation kit and you said I don't. I'm about 
to make the purchase soon and I want to get this right. I know a lot of 
folks say an elevation rotor is not even needed these days but I have 
wanted and coveted one of these rotor systems a very long time and the 
XYL  and CFO finally authorized the funds for purchase.
Thanks again for the pic and the advice.
Michael, W4HIJ
