Welcome to the forum, have split your post from the other thread so that it can be dealt with properly. :)

From your location and using an offset dish, the face of the dish should be almost vertical, only leaning back slightly when at the top of the arc. The elevation is set on the motor body, the declination is set on the dish mount and will change the depth of the arc.
