Do you not see the pictures of my dish
Does any body recognize this style of mounting I’m looking for the proper FASTNERS and WASHERS for this big dish this is a large stainless steel dish
Bill, I posted the pictures as soon as I got them and did not look at them well until I ate dinner. The ones you have marked would best be replaced, if needed, with Stainless steel bolts, nuts and washers of the proper size to fit the holes.I would use vice grips or c-clamps to hold the mount tiight together while unbolting it to measure and put them right back in for safety. Get some anti-sieze from the auto parts store to keep them from binding or seizing. ANYONE ELSE with better ideas?
Do we know if there are bushing, or are the bolts serving as the bearing surface?
Either way, I'm thinking grade 8 bolts, with shoulders long enough to keep the threaded section of the bolt out of the shear zone, locking nuts and/or jamb nuts, flat washers at both ends of each bolt, and (if there are no bushing involved) NO lock washers.
A polished metal dish would no doubt look very cool, but it seems to me that around the time of the next solar outage, all the sunlight striking the surface of the dish would be sharply focused right down the throat of the LNB! ... just a theory.
Thats the problem I have lost the original Fastners so I don't know.
The 2 flat pieces of .25 plate steel probly should not be directly rubing together. Again I'm hoping that we have some senior BIG DISH installeras on this forum that might know.
