need vendor for sheave, mubir block

I have searched long and hard to find a sheave for my 14 mm violin type mubir block. The sheave has a bearing, is 35 mm in diameter is 14 mm thick and has a centre hole of 5 mm. I have tried to contact Pfeiffer marine who has this block in their catalogue and they refered me to a Kiel (DE) agent but they never returned my request.
Can anyone suggest where I can find a sheave of these dimensions? I live in Australia but any international vender will do.
Thank you for reading my post

Try sending your dimensions to Garhauer. They do very nice custom work, prices are reasonable, and I see they have a branch in NZ:
Dinghy Davits, Lifting Hoists, Yacht Pulleys, Sailboat Blocks - Garhauer Marine NZ Ltd

This is not the URL I typed!

Dinghy Davits, Lifting Hoists, Yacht Pulleys, Sailboat Blocks - Garhauer Marine NZ Ltd

In case the sailnet web daemon changes the URL again it is:
www dot garhauer dot co dot nz

Fluctuat nec mergitur
