I don`t think the dish has any damage. You should switch to horizontal 
polarization, adjust the Skew-function to a readout between the highest and 
lowest readout and then turn the whole feed for some degrees to the right or 
left until you get a good signal. Check the opposite polarization. If you 
have here a weaker signal, just try again in turning the feed until both 
polarization are at a maximum and equal.

Fitting an EGIS-rotor to a IRTE-dish is no problem. EGIS offers for several 
known brands of dishes mechanical solutions.
The owner of EGIS, Mr.Meixner. speaks english and he will provide you with a 
adress of the importer in Italy, but compare the prices between EGIS and the
