I think I've got my model numbers correct. The LNB bracket on F-i-Ls Mk4 dish has snapped on the hinge part of the clamp and I need to replace it as no amount of cable tie and gaffa tape is holding it firm. It's on the chimney due to trees and the gulls perch on it! The Mk4 is the 3 sided version that snaps on over the LNB arm and has the spirit level on it, yes? Fleabay only seems to sell adapters for newer 37MM LNBs to be used on Mk3s and these slide into a rectangular 4 sided LNB arm.

From what I can see the cheapest way to buy the bracket is complete with a quad LNB for around £7, I know it's not going to break the bank but would rather just pay a couple of quid for the plastic bracket if I can find one. Any one able to point me in the right direction?

You looking for one of these?(would it work?)

Would this universal one work?

Or only the original would fit?

The first link is the Mk3 AFAICT and for the older support arm that has all four sides so that one slides in. The newer dishes don't have four sides so the LNB bracket clips over the arm. That second link is the part I need but is in Southern Ireland and with the postage costs more than the same item with an quad lnb available in the UK. I'm just surprised no one is selling it seperately over here. If I could find 1000 of them I could flog em on Ebay :)
