[TowerTalk] need advice on older Cushcraft 2 el 40

I am putting the older 2 el 40 up on my new Rohn 45 tower but taking it down I had to replace some hardware and the coax with the coax balun got messed up. I wound a 12 turn coil as per instructions but SWR is 1.8 to 1.

I feel using whatever balun the XM240 uses is the easiest fix.  I can't tell from the MFJ/Cushcraft catalog and I probably will use a better balun if necessary.

Thanks in advance for the help.  I don't plan on modifying the beam as I am mounting it 12 feet above another beam.
