You just need the bar that fits the opening in the counterweight , nothing more. I have had mine for many many years and I love it!
Not sure about the scope. I use mine for AP 130 F/8.35 and AP 155 F/7 scopes. I move up to my AP 900 GOTO for my AP 10” Maksutov (first run).

Subject: [ap-gto] Mach 1 Question
Hey all,

Just picked up a used Mach 1 mount to take place of my Paramount MyT I had as my second mount. Nothing against the MyT, I just like my A-P mounts better. Anyhow, I want to be able to use the existing counterweights I have for my 1100. In this case do I just need the bigger bar, and nothing more -- or do I need to replace something else as well?

Looking forward to getting this lovely used mount out for a fresh curve and some good imaging nights with the iDK. One more question would a 10" iDK weighing in at about 45-50 pounds fully loaded be fine on the Mach 1? Its a pretty compact scope, so I would think so -- but it doesnt hurt to ask.
