Not a lot Roland, that several page long chart is for the nuts
themselves. Nut mounts, other than what they should do well in terms of
alignment with the nut to screw axis, aren't mentioned anyplace in that
nominally 206 page pdf.
Google for "ball nut mount footprints", and this one fits the screw I
have perfectly, is the "hip roofed" style for a 2505 screw. There are
also square topped varieties.
scroll to the bottom of the page. The lower left image is the style of
nut mount I have. Clicking on that image, which I didn't know you could
do, links eventually to:
Which agrees 100% with the DSG charts for a 2505. So now I have 2
different sources for a footprint drawing whose data match. It looks
like I have some measurements to double check once the pills and coffee
kick in. Thats sort of an osmosis like process. :)
Thanks Roland. I appreciate the effort to help.
Cheers, Gene Heskett
