Response to Calling all tow cable experts...

Between the sleeve and the eye the rope folds back onto itself so it would be an 8 shape in cross-section there. There are some ropes that had spliced eyes but these usually didn't have sleeves.

Also, wire rope in these sorts of applications is normally hexagonal in cross-section shape rather than circular. At least in American practice, rope diameter is measured across the corners, not across the flats, as would be the case if it were solid bar rather than rope. You should verify that your measurements correspond with the prevailing practice.
