I need to replace the pivot bolt where my dish's actuator arm and the small arm from the dish mount intersect.  I was thinking of going with something like this (listed from the top down):

[bolt head]
-locking washer-
-washer-
=actuator arm=
-washer-
|spacer| and/or -washer(s)-
-washer-
=dish mount arm=
-washer-
-locking washer-
[nyloc nut]

Too much, just right, too little?  Just looking for a second opinion.

Hi,

The two lock washers are probably redundant, if you're using a Nyloc nut.

As long as the ball in the rod end bearing on the actuator is rotating freely, once everything is tightened up, there shouldn't be any significant torsional load at the nut.

Regards,

Richard

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
