Bellrope adjustment round 8

The tenor’s rope seems to have settled into its new position, after another round of adjustment for it, and it is now consistent with the other seven bells.  All the bellropes now have the bottom of each sally ~65″ from the floor when set at hand, and the end of the tail ~76″ from the floor when set at back.

This new lower sally position for the tenor should make it easier to bring up right (with the clapper at the forward edge of the bell).
