George,

I read through the Balancing Side-by-Side procedures you provided a link to and understood everything until I got to Steps 6 through 9.  Photos would sure help me visualize what is going on.

Is the Primary Saddle Plate removed from the mount when doing these steps?

I have the DOVELM162 mounted onto the AP1600 and I think there was only one position I could place it in to allow me to use all the bolt holes tapped in the top of the mount.

Yours truly,

Jack Huerkamp
