Question Boom Blocks to Traveler Pictures Needed

I just traded a guy my 1974 O'Day 22 (w/new Yamaha outboard and 2002 trailer) for his 1983 Newport 27 MKII, which is in excellent condition, except for rigging, which all needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, he stripped the rigging from the 3 boom blocks feeding the traveler, and the otherwise decent Newport 27 MKII manual shows NOTHING of that rigging.

Could a fellow Newport owner send me a picture or two of how to run the line through those blocks?

Also, does anyone know whether the halyard pulleys at the top of the mast would take 100% rope halyards instead of the wire-to-rope halyards originally on the Newport?

Thanks,
Stenn
