Just received the ATU for my 6400M.  I took the top cover off but can't figure out where it goes.

Are there installation instructions for this ATU? There aren't any in the Downloads section.

Thanks.

I have taken my flex-6400 apart and have some pictures for you.
   

1: Used #8 Torx to remove all screws for bottom, including the feet.
2: On the right, looking from the front, there is a  metal plate
      just above the PA.
3 : Remove the 4 screws, one is the back.
4:The 2 open male connectors near the back of the PA , plug the
    longest coax with the  straight connector to the left side  and
    short one to the right side connector. Feed through the hole
    first, do not grab the coax or pull on it. it takes little pressure
    to insert the connector. 

 metal chassis. 
5: Plug the ribbon cable into the Pa board first, on the right side of the picture.
6: Screw down the ATU metal frame to the unit and then
     attach the ATU with 4 screws.
7 Plug the coax and ribbon cables.


I hope this helps and my direction are not confusing, good luck.

Mike, VA3MD
