Hi everybody, I recently got my hands on a channel master polarmount which I intend to refurbish. It's in ok condition, bit of rust here and there, nothing that cant be sorted. The only problem is that the original power bar is missing

Can any one give me the dimensions of their one on their setup? Width, thickness, length, hole drillings; diameter, centers and offset. Pictures with ruler alongside if possible! Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for all help

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Power bar ?

The actuator (if that's what you mean) is usually 12 or 18 inches extendable length, with about 4 inches more for the gearbox on the end.

You will need a VBox converter to drive it with a DiSEqC enabled receiver such as your 5402.

Do you mean the metal arm that the actuator bolts to ?

There's a few people on here can help with that if you need the length.

The power bar is bolted across the top of the polarmount and can be fixed so as to project away from the polarmount at 90˚ to
the left or the right. The end of the actuator attaches to the opposite end of the power bar in one of two holes depending on the size of the actuator.

Thanks for that Captain Jack, I knew I'd seen it on here somewhere, but could I flipping find it!!! Just one more thing, how far from the end is the 1st mounting hole?
