My response was for the Cband side of the corotor 2 and its flange but nevertheless......Thanks CH I did not think the corotor would cover 3.35 - 4.85 Ghz but its just out of band . Do you think I would get any better gain if I removed the first elbow on the corotor and bolted the Ku LNB straight onto the corotor in the same way I installed the C Band LNB I bolted it straight onto the corotor flange and not the elbow as we all know bends cause loss .

Why not try with, and without the flange first ? Ys, there will always be a gain by removing a 90 degree elbow, but it might be negated by the shadow of the change in the waveguide depth, the standing wave ratio, plus the shadow of the LNB on the reflector surface.
You are always trying to walk when you can already run, fewer may keep up unless you can learn to slow down.
Yes the dish is set up as if you connect up the scope if you scan move the dish from east to west you can see all the signals as you move across the belt since the polar mount has not had any maintenance it may require a small adjustment but seems ok I have however noticed that the neck of the feed is pointed about a foot above the centre of the dish as you can see in the picture but I am replacing the arms so that will all be reset up again . Ok on leaving the Ku elbow on the corotor .
I think while the dish is in bits I will give it a good rub down and respray with Cromadex Alu-Zinc + RAL 9010 Pure White I will just do the face only...
Not sure MoonBase these 2 are the only ones I could find...
Many Thanks Rimants for the offer of the O ring and screws its for a standard WR-75 flange . I will have a look at the spec sheet for this type of LNB but the screw kit I have found I think is for a inline flange because you have nuts from looking at your bowl I would think you must have 4 bolts there that would fit . I will have a look on the SMW web site or have a chat with SMW as screw and O ring are a standard I would have thought . Attached is the confirming the size . Seems there M3 Screws . Hope this helps if not I will contact SMW . But its a standard WR75 flange screws and O rings should be standard size .If you give precise dimensions of the O-ring and screws, I could find couple of set for you.
