Generally if the rope will pass through you'll be OK... in rare instances the sheave is wire dimensioned only... but if you currently have wire/rope splices and the rope passes through you should be fine.

Look for a low stretch line, (several makes available) expect to pay $2/ft or more for the good stuff....
