Hi OM's,

I'm in the process of installing my first tower (Rohn 25).  As a result of
recommendations on this reflector, I purchased a WB0W gin-pole.  It is
really well made & I'm glad I made the purchase.

Now for my problem:  When I put the gin-pole in place to raise a tower
section, the top pulley is positioned to the "outside" of the tower.  After
the tower section is raised, and I swing the section around to mount it on
the tower, the pulley will not swing around.  This makes installing the
section very difficult.  

Yes, the set screw on the top pulley is "withdrawn".  I'm using 2" OD
aluminum tubing.  I have filed the top of the tube to remove any rough
spots.  I must be missing something!  Please send me any suggestions you
might have.
