Once you have the mast out, then take the cable for the new mast and insert it into the antenna mast tube. Then turn on and off the radio and work the cable till the motor pulls it in.Once the antenna has been taken in, walk the mast all the way till it stops. Put the nut back on, and turn the radio on, and then off and see if it goes in all the way.If it doesn't, then you will need to remove the nut again, turn the radio on, and allow the mast to come back out.
