Mike:

An 8" beam going 60 feet......Wow! How much deflection will you allow?

Here are a couple of ideas.....

Add a cap channel on the top flange and an inverted tee on the bottom to
create additional depth.

or

Replace with a new deeper beam and a cap channel

or

Replace with a new tube

or

Replace with a new pair of deeper beams or joists trussed together
horizontally


I hope this helps!
