Well luck isn't going to get this done as you have noticed. ;) We need to think about this logically and just make sure we have the basics. Since this is just an antenna re-install we need not worry about any settings in the receiver or compatibility issues with the equipment. 1st step is to make sure the mast is plumb. There are many smart phone apps that will turn your phone into a inclinometer. Or if you access to a bubble level. Without a straight mast you can't measure the other angles correctly. Without a straight mast the dish won't reflect the signal correctly, even when you are pointed at the satellite. Check and make sure the coax connection to the LNBF has not been damaged or corroded.
