Thank you Kevin !

I thought I surfed to the end of the internet, but sure didn't find that 

Much appreciated !

I have a split washer, not the star washer as per the diagram, so I will 
endeavour to get some of those before re-erecting anything.

  I was curious and found this.

  Taco sells the same tower that Wade did as Delhi
  The install instructions for Taco DMX are here


  They show bolts facing in, with a single washer at the nut, (not split
  lock washer, a star lock washer with internal teeth.
  They say "All bolts and nuts are specially heat treated"

  and "These special heat treated bolts have solid shoulders in order to
  prevent the tower sections from shifting. Tighten the nut securely, but
  be careful not to strip the threads".

  If the nuts and bolts are heat treated, they must be at least grade 5?
  Doesn't say if galvanized.

  1/2" diameter x 3/4" bolts on bottom sections.  3/8" x 5/8" for upper
