Have you tried calling customer support? At least some of the people answering the phone have been with Meade a long time and might be able to help you.
Anyone that has one of these mounts have any ideas?
For whatever it is worth, you have my sympathies!

Anyone have any improvements to the manual's how-to do the ota alignment? Many thanks.

As far as the OTA alignment using the 2 sets of 2 screws you need to be careful as the aluminum is very soft and it is easy to strip the threads, which you already know.
I messed with it on my scope and found that it did not make a significant difference. Without any adjustment all the GOTO objects were always in the field of the finder scope.

More critical to good GOTO's is proper pre-alignment of the scope in DEC & RA prior to starting the 3 star alignment process before an imaging session.
Also it will be important to do a reasonable drift align before each imaging session if you don't have a permanent setup to take some of the burden off the guiding program.
