Azimuth adjustment on VPI Scoutmaster

I was looking for some advice on the azimuth adjustment of the VPI Scoutmaster. The problem: If I set the azimuth with the lemo connector unplugged, when I plug it in later the azimuth is no longer correct (because the lemo connector and tonearm wire pull the arm slightly inward). I therefore decided that it would be best if I made the azimuth adjustment with the lemo connector plugged in. Is this correct? Anybody have any experience here?



I've got a Scoutmaster. I adjusted azimuth (as well as VTF) with the lemo connector plugged in. I never even thought about making these adjustments without it connected.

Thanks. I was pretty sure that the adjustment would need to be made with the lemo connected, but there is always that little seed of doubt...
