Tartan 30 Mast?

I recently purchased a 1975 Tartan 30 hull #281. The sail gate on the mast was broken and I am trying to replace it. I contancted Tartan and they informed me that there were several masts that were used and refered me to rig-rite. I contacted then and all they could say is "look on our website and figure it out" So in doing so It appears as I have a Spartan Spars cd-5 mast. The outside dimensions are the same and track, also the spreaders, and steaming light look the same. I ordered the mast gate for it. When I got it it was a bit differnt from the one that was on my boat and the mounting holes were not in the same spot. I contacted Rig-Rite and the said "send it back for a 20% restocking fee and we'll send you another". Now the wont return emails and when I call just say "there busy" and "we will contact you in a few weeks" Now Thats customer service! Does anyone on here know what kind of mast is popular on the 30? and does anyone know where else I can get parts for this mast?
Thanks
