Needs some advice on the procedure to replace the main cable on a telescoping 3-section tower that is motorized with positive pull-down. It is a US Tower TX455MDP and was bought 24 years ago from US Tower, back in 1993. Many strands are broken and there is no doubt this main cable must be replaced. I investigated the other cable and it is fine and will not be replaced. I have removed the old main cable. I have a 100 foot long replacement cable. 3/16 inch 7 x 19 GAC with the loop and thimble with compression sleeve installed on one end.
Advise is requested or a step by step procedure to install the new main cable would be great.
