Addtional sheave/block at masthead?

I have a fixed boom top lift. I'd like to change it out to a "real" top lift. What are the options to adding a block at the MH ? My current housing has cross-head/dual wire sheaves and I don;t believe I'd like (the expense) to change that out.

Add a saddle bracket and loop for hanging a shackled block?? THere *may* be a tabbed bracket existing for the one on now...simply add a block to it?
I'd like the option to use the lift to haul up the top of a boom tent and hold the boom as a crane jib when lifting heavy items aboard; potentially to 350#s ie; motor r/r?, dink lift.

TIA,
Paul
