Please help me find new sheaves

Hi All...

The sheaves in my mast head are made for wire and are worn. I am hoping to switch to line halyards, but have not been able to find new sheaves. These measure:

diameter: 3.5 inches
width: 11/16 inch
axle hole: 3/4 inch ID, with a bushing that has a 3/8 inch ID hole

There is no hint on it who the manufacturer is, and I don't know who made the mast. There is a lagel on the mast, but it is partially covered. It looks like the company name starts with an a and ends in ar, and are in Connecticut. But then again, that label ma have nothing to do with the mast manufacturer.

I have googled incessantly. If anyone can suggest a supplier who has odd sizes I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Jim
