I purchased an old TriEx TM470 (70' crank up tower).

It has way too much slack in the cables and they don't wind up correctly
on the take-up drum without pushing on the cables to remove the excess
slack as they wind on the drum.

What is the correct way to tension the tower cable spring (Keeps tension
on cables so they don't sag or flop)?
