I had a similar issue when mounting the drive, I just unbolted the bracket that holds it in place, lined up the drive, and turned it until I could bolt it back on. you'll love the sportpilot, mine has worked flawlessly so far.

one thing I do is show the controller to all new people on the boat. it is very important to not turn the wheel by hand when the autopilot is engaged. it's a simple push of the standby button and the wheel is all yours.
