    Im gonna be installing a 1000.4 and today I found out my original mast is to short.

    Best I can tell I need 14" from the center of the mast to the wall due to the angle of my garage wall.

    Is the 1000.4 masts with the braces longer. Could someone measure it and let me know, please.

    Yes the strut mount is longer. It will let the reflector spin completely around on the wall. The LNB would hit, but why would you aim at a wall anyway?

    If it is not long enough, flip the mast 180 degrees and drill new holes for the bolts. This should gain you a foot or so, as long as it still clears your soffit.
