Re: Spartite and new mast boot

If you really can't ease the boot over the Spartite (soak with hot water? soften with heat gun?) you might try some cribbing, like a 2x4 or 4x4 down below, and using a small bottle jack to PUSH the spartite up.

I'd have to second the thought though: Work the boot, leave the Spartite where it is. Spartite generally doesn't like moving.
