    I don't know if my ΣFin is correct I am having trouble setting it up. Can you check if the new diagram and the component setup is right?

    looks very good except at the very end you made a couple of math errors when solving for T2( forgot to subtract out the mg/root 3 term and the 1/2 factor in the denominator was overlooked. ).
