I have got to try and set up a 36v H-H motor this weekend for someone,
it is a right heavy lump by an unknown maker. Sadly, the scale on the side
is missing, there seems to have been a sticker there in the past but it has gone.

The motor 'stalk' is straight (not one of the angled ones) so I guess I
need to measure the angle of how much the stalk leans forward off of the vertical but I can't find a website with a calculator on it like there are for polar mounts.

My lat. is London 51.5 ish

Cheers.

\The only thing i can say is try and match it up with one in a sat shop or you could get some sort of angle finder. I was on a site a while ago looking for measurements its w*w.heavens-above.com
