C&C 32 main halyard sheave

I have a 1980 C&C 32 and i tried to replace the wire main halyard this weekend. I wipped the new 5/16 line to the old 5/32 wire and taped it up and pulled to the top. The new line made it over the sheave and then in behind, but then stopped and would not go any further. Upon pulling it back down i noticed that the tape over the wire was all chewed up but the tape around the rope was fine. So my question is, is there something behind the sheave like a hole or some sort of metal gap that only 5/32 wire can pass through. Any pics of the 32 mast head or advice would be helpful. Thanks
