I had to remove one of their 1/4-20 cap screws and use a counter sunk flat head screw to get the mount to move far enough to get the balance.

On a side note I did have one made by Anthony at ADM using Losmandy saddle for my Ultima 8 and a Vixen saddle for my Orion 80ED. It was chore not just due to the overall weight difference but the weight proportional of the SCT rear to front. In fact I sold my SCT W.O focuser due to it. I now just use a ADM Dual Saddle with a small W.O 66SD scope on top of the 80ED and Ultima 8.
