Investigating where/how I can replace the dry rotted/cracked phasing harness assembly for my old db 404-B antenna. Any insight would be appreciated.

Maybe reach out to commscope who makes the antenna now ?

In the past I tried to replace one on a VHF version and the cost of the harness was close to a new antenna. If the antenna has been up long enough for the cables to deteriorate it may be worth the new antenna. The antenna is less than $400 online. I guess if one was really in a bind you could try to rebuild the harness but normally need decent test equipment to do this.
