Make your Harness outside the mast and then use a wire snake longer than your mast you may be able to pull a chaser line in with your old wiring and pull the new wiring in with it.

I have also seen a trick using a strip of cloth tied to your wire harness and a vacum at one end of the mast. The cloth is pulled through by the vacum...it worked better than expected.

When I'm running network cables thru conduit, I use a walmart bag, pull string and vacuum. Works great.
