Resheaving Main Halyard

I need some suggestions on resheaving the main halyard down a mast of a 26 foot sloop.

Tried sewing a bicycle chain to the end of the halyard (to give it some weight) and sending the chain over the sheave at the masthead and into the mast, but the chain got stuck inside.

I''d like to make the next trip up the bosun''s chair my last (for a while). Thanks.
