I have it working OK now.
What I did was drill another pair of holes in the GS-120 rotating pipe.
There are two pairs of holes, one set near the top and one pair near the
bottom edge of the pipe.
I drilled another pair of holes about 2 inches below the top pair, this
leaves the pipe barely protruding below the bottom of the mouting clamp
on the Winegard dish.
This allows the bottom bolt on the dish mounting bracket to clear the
rotating pipe and still adjust for about 4.5 deg of declination.
I can now see birds from 60 to 135 West degrees, I am at 80 West.
I haven't had a chance to look for more or or make fine adjustments but
I am close now.
This winegard dish uses the through-bolt on the rotating pipe as the
pivot hole, some others I have looked at have the pivot forward of the
mounting clamp and don't have this problem.
