First, thank you for the suggestions regarding my previous post, the pole has been successfully installed.
However, I've noticed that the mount for my dish doesn't resemble any of those shown in the manuals or guides available online. It's a Zenith brand mount, and I'm unable to find any information about it online. Is anyone familiar with this type of mount?
Also, any suggestions for the actuator? My 10' dish didn't come with one.

I had forgotten that Zenith put out a C-band system. And now I can't remember who made the dish, but it was a premium maker. Winegard. Perforated aluminum, not expanded mesh. Good for Ku as well.

The receiver I believe was a rebranded Drake.

Appears to be a simple polar mount- set declination (if adjustable) and then put the elevation at setting for your latitude and lock the mount on the post facing due south and start swinging the dish east & west looking for signal.

Look up Winegard Pinnacle cause that's what it is.Just like the one in my backyard.
