I'm in the process of putting up my tower (after a 6.5 year wait). Last 
night, I obtained a 2" Al mast and fitted it in my 25AG3 top section.

I'm concerned that the fit is rather snug, and might cause binding under 

Does anyone have any tips on the use of an AG3 top section and a 2" mast? 
Is some sort of lubricant suggested for the inside of the top section? 
Are there any other ways to avoid binding within the top section?
