Sorry I just went over your reply
During setting the home position on the mount just worry about setting your elevation on the mount using the Alt bolts , the long chrome ones , itís the latitude of your location site you set ( forget about the longitude for the moment )
I use a builders electronic angle device Accumaster to set the Altitude or Latitude. Itís only accurate to one decimal point but good enough
The Dec bolts ( black knob small ones ) are for your Azimuth adjustments which comes later when you polar align, just screw then in evenly both sides until just touching the centre post on your tripod base circle. I use a ruler to ensure they are equal both sides to the mount
Hope the above makes sense
