Looking at your longitude, it looks to me like your true south satellite is IA8 @ 89.0w. I could be wrong. The motor (on the pole) should always be set to your latitude, in your case 37.4 - 37.5. I don't know about for your motor, but for an HH90 motor the dish would be set at 39.1, for an HH100 or an HH120 motors the dish would be set at 24.1. Your declination angle is about 5.95, so if you had a Pansat PM900 S motor, it would be 46.5 - 5.95 = 40.6 for the dish angle. If you had an SG2100 motor, it would be 30 - 5.95 = 24.1. Of course your motor is none of these, but you can give them a try.
