I have a Wilson Tower: TT-45B.

I'm told that it is similar to the Texas Tower MA-40. 

This is just the straight up and down model.


It's been up for 32 years and the cable is becoming frayed in a one area.

I will be dismantling everything in a few weeks.

Does anyone know the length of the cable that is used to raise and lower the
inner portion of the tower?


I have some good documentation that someone sent me from California. 

However, I don't see a length for the cable.


The outer section has not rust at all; however, the inner section has rust.

I assume sanding the rusted areas and painting will help. Any suggestions?
