Cool Rigging question

I am replacing 27 years ol original standing rigging on my Bayfield 36' cutter.
Even though the old rigging appears to be in excellent condition, I want to replace it in preparation for offshore trips. Replacing stays, lower and upper shrouds presented no problems at all, but 4 intermediate shrouds which are supporting mast near inner (2 on each side) stay have obsolete T terminals which are no longer made. I wonder how much, considering their good appearance, I will compromise the integrity of the mast if I don't replace old intermediate shrouds.
Any comments, advises will be greatly appreciated.
Nestor.
