C&C 26 wire halyard replacement

I am in planning to replace the main & jib halyards on my 1978 C&C 26 this winter. Currently have original wire to rope style but would like to go to all rope if possible. Wondering if anyone has done this and if the existing masthead sheaves can accept an all rope halyard or if they have to be replaced?

If the masthead sheaves have to be replaced is it a big job?

Also wondering if anyone has specific recommendations on a supplier or line brand?
