Ah, penetrating fluid.
Hope I don't have to use that approach, but, if I do, then I might also need some "connecting nuts " like these (from Screwfix). They are very handy for joining "things" together - like I did when I modified one of those small folding trolleys to prevent the wheels buckling inwards (lost the original pic of that but it's shown here in my "reader review" of the trolley on Amazon).
Sounds like you had a very good deal! And always good when the seller is helpful.Just picked the Gilbertini from the chap (Patrick - a very nice guy who has lost interest in sat stuff) in West Drayton. To my (very pleased) surprise, he had already dismounted the dish from the stand and dismantled the latter, and removed the motor (must admit I had missed that there was a motor because it was not mentioned in the listing and not very obvious in the pics).
All we had to then do was to unbolt the dish from the mount and remove the feedarms - again, I had missed that it is the dual feedarm version because the 2nd one is hardly visible in the photos.
No real trouble with any of the bolts so far - except that the LNB clamp screw is distinctly "tight" so that will need some penetrating fluid and maybe a bit of heat if I don't want to break anything.
The motor will probably need the same sort of treatment as it's a Stab HH120 with a lot of surface corrosion on the casing, which is aluminium/alloy - not intending to use it but might as well clean it up in case anyone else wants it.
The stand is in 3 pieces and is in v.g.c because it's galvanised - anyone have any idea of roughly what it might be worth because I have no use (or space) for it?

Correct, and OK for the STAB motor mount clamp because that was what was fitted to it - Thus I suppose that the brand new price (whatever that was) was somewhere a bit above that for something similar, but with a 42mm or 50mm pole. Will look into that - but around £70 -£100 sounds (+ carriage) looks about the new price for one of those, although of course this would be secondhand and thus cheaper!The value of the stand (NPRM type) depends on the diameter of the pole, they generally come with a 2" or 3" pole.
Edit: I see your reply indicating it is a 60mm diameter pole.
A33 was asking about a Stab earlier, for parts.The motor will probably need the same sort of treatment as it's a Stab HH120 with a lot of surface corrosion on the casing, which is aluminium/alloy - not intending to use it but might as well clean it up in case anyone else wants it.
Well yes, I have a circuit board of the HH100 with a faulty IC, so I'm looking for a replacement circuit board.A33 was asking about a Stab earlier, for parts.
