Stay away from the T90 ugly dish and horrible wall mount brackets. Much cheaper to get a small motorised dish.
I was given a T90 for free but ended up disposing of it.

Not sure will look in the morning - Im in Hull UK
I never used a screw calculator .
Find 0.8w or 1.9e first as far out on the bar (As these are the weakest) Then tighten the antenna when you got the strongest signal on these.

I know thats topic about t55 however im not that far away from you, and having dish t90 having issues finding all of sats, what I mean is if i find 5W then 28E is gone, only way to do it is twist dish horizontally however when one is OK then other is lost, i have suspition that dish could be bend? my central position is 16E .
Would that great looking intallation work in South France 42°/2°E approximately?(Carcassonne)?

28e - very strong
23e - very strong
19e - very strong
13e - very strong
9e - very strong
5e - quite strong
1w - black ultra lnb required as this is a weaker sat
5w - Italian & French multistream works fine but weak
I m very tempted at this

Twist the middle mount on the dish so the lnb bar is lower for 5W&1W and higher for 28E.

@misiozol. It is best to check the manual for the dish
_WAVEFRONTIER TOROIDAL 90 INSTALLATION MANUAL Pdf Download | ManualsLib

The important thing is to always first adjust the central lnb. If needed, install one temporarily for a sat as close to the center
as is possible.
It is then best to point the dish very slightly above what goves the best reception for the central lnb (but avoid sacrificing
more than 0.5 dB. There is no need for that). Once the central lnb is ok, it is really only a matter of tilting the dish slightly, and
then fine tuning by sliding the lnbs left and right (not critical) and adjusting skew and other things like the exact location in the
lnb holder.

If one side is ok and the center is ok, then the only thing that can be wrong is the lnb not in the correct
position on the rail, or a wrong skew.
