Thanks Stan.

There aren't any hang ups with cables.   Over the years I've taken this 
setup all over the place.  You may even be able to see pictures of it in 
Amsat Journal field day write ups.   Murphy's Law has taught me all the 
things that can give trouble with certain setups.  So I think it needs to 
be taken down and cleaned up or I could just keep on using it until it 
fails.   The temperatures in Montana can be 20 below zero in the winter and 
over 100F in the summer so I need to find a wide temperature range 
grease.   I may replace all the bearings too.
