7/16 inch masthead sheave?

I'm exploring the possibility of replacing my wire/rope halyard sheaves with an all "rope" sheave. Current sheaves are only 7/16 wide. Does anyone know of a source for a 7/16 wide by 2 1/2 inch diameter sheave that will accomodate a 3/8 inch line? Or is that too small of a width sheave for a line of that size?

Thanks for any thoughts on this in advance!

There is a lot of good information here Zephyrwerks The Sheave Factory and they produce excellent sheaves as well.
