Hi everybody,

I pulled a couple of small cables through my 100 foot 3" conduit that goes from 
the house to the tower. This time it was extremely difficult. I can't even pull 
 the cable another inch. I'm lucky that it's just sticking out the other end. 
Seems like the pull rope is twisted around some of the cables; and getting 
worse every time I pull something else through. What's the best way to deal 
with this?

A. Start using cable pull lubricant and don't wory about it?

B. Fish a new pull rope through the conduit? If this is the right answer, 
what's the right way to do it? This sounds like the proper thing to do, if I 
can figure out how.
