if you dont have limits, link them out on the galil icm,for each axis  so it thinks limits are fine anyway.
if you add limits in future you just put limit where link is so you know it wont be an issue.

use servo reverse in plugin, read the galil manual re reversing if that doesnt work
when you say indexed the motor- not the encoder end i hope.
some motors have sinusoidal encoders which have to be spot on.
(as somebody im programming for this week found out)

if you get chattering etc when moving turn your kd setting down and re burn

the incom signal on the icm needs to be connected to ground if you want normally closed to operate active low for the abort signal. saves breaking your estop switch!

the abort can be either hi or low depending on the polarity of the incom signal
for safety it should be wired normally closed. that way if wire gets snapped it stops

what pin did you connect abort to through estop? galil icm 2900 or 1900?
also. read the section on laen or haen chip in icm. does your chip finish with 06 or 07?

have you set the setup units in mach to your preferred measurement? mm or inches?
config, setup units. set once and forget.
it may be that your getting 25.4 times less movement than you think you want?

ive pulled 4g in my plane- noooooooo dont want to do that again!
but -3 g feels much worse.

also in mdi screen if you issue g1 a10 f100  you are only asking for 10 degrees of movement. if axis is at that position it wont move (check on a axis dro for movement in numbers)

type G90 first to set mode to absolute movement
try G0 A350 F1000
then G1 A100
should move 250 degrees if you have steps per right

in mach go to config, general config
make sure a axis is checked as angular if your working a  as a rotary axis
