In the old days, the rotator plate didn't always have the electrical
connection cut-out so you had to stand off the rotator so that the wires
wouldn't short out. Nowadays just about every plate has the cutout so the
spacer is redundant.
The spacer is typically sold separately. How did you manage to get one
with the rotator? A used deal? If so, please refurb it or have someone like
Norm or the Rotor Doc to go through it before you install it.
