Richard, there is no difference between the azimuth and elevation
rotor connections.  Both are five hundred ohm potentiometers.  Pin
one is one end of the pot, pin two in the center wiper and pin three
is the other end of the pot.  Azimuth is marked A 1,2,3 and elevation
is marked E 1,2,3.  Disconnect the wire marked E2, you will remove the
elevation feedback voltage to the controller box and the computer.
