This sounds like a turnbuckle issue.. seized or galled, most likely. At this point, it's likely you would be wise to replace the lot anyway, including the turnbuckles.
You could use wire and the fittings you describe, but I wonder how much you'll really save over having the rigging prepared by a pro (esp since you're going to need new turnbuckles either way... On that boat the cost would not be prohibitive.
