1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

As you have failed to give any dish/motor details that could be difficult for anyone to do

Are you using USALS?

If so, your answer appears to be at Post #3.

Exactly my point, members are just supposed to know that is a H-H motor and guess the size of your dish are they?


Help others to help you

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Very informative Cocker.

Just out of interest, are the instructions you have posted in the manual that comes with the motor, and do you know if these mechanical limit sliders have been known to fail, move in transit, or move once installed ?

I did fit a motor once which had them set to 20deg out the box. Box was as new and didn't look opened. Reeally wound me up as I had to take the whole lot down. But usually they come maxed out.

Been lucky with those that I've installed but well worth checking beforehand.

Thanks, looks like I've installed a clone then. No instructions suggesting anything under the clamping arm, and as of late the motor has stopped short of anything West of 16E.

No amount of 'reset to 0', or realignment has helped.

Yep the image is from the manual that came with my 2300, but should be the same as the 2600. There is a screw on the sliders that allows you to lock them into place. I can scan the manual and upload it if you require it?

The TM 2200, 2300, and 2600 are just slightly updated copies of the Moteck SG2100a apart from they are more robust and have metal gears.

They are virtually indistingushable from each other :eek:

I've had all four at some point :D

The 2600 has metal gearing; the 2300 a reinforced rear bracket I believe :)

Thanks, but what you have already posted is fine.
