yes it will work just fine. If there is a transmitter on the arm of the dish, you need to bypass it.

True south for 83501 is Satmex5 (you are at 116.9 longitude and its at 116.8)

Yes direcway dish /lnbf will work for fta ku. A little undersized, but it will work
pretty well. I have one, and it is a pain to aim but once aimed it stays there.
I put mine on a pole for awhile just to try it out on G10 but found an old primestar works much better. For your true south and setup>
