            Went to rotate the geartrain (gear housing clocking)
            as directed in manual pg 14, found 2 strip screws
            out of 10 screws.
            Screws for side mount of control box not in package, or packing list.
            Called technical line: stated that they were metric,
            no idea on thread or pitch. tried M3X.50 (loose)
            and M4X.70(to big) ?
