N28 Mast Sheave size

Not sure if others had run into replacements, but when I purchased mine, two of the four were missing altogether and the PO (possibly the one before him too?) had just been using blocks on the outside for sail duties. Looking all over the place, I could find basically NOTHING that matched up, size-wise, offered as an off-the-shelf option. In my case, measuring the existing ones, left me with the following size:

2 3/4" diameter x 1/2" wide x 3/8" pin opening.

Enter Ballenger Spars, which actually has that exact size listed on his parts list (part number SHV2751612a) as an aluminum sheave. I ordered two, and will report back when they arrive, but I've had nothing but praise for them and expect nothing wrong. Current pricing as of today is $38 dollars. Not sure if that was each or for the pair, honestly lol. He just said, you need two? Ok, current price on those is... thirty eight. I was happy to have found them at all, and was like, yes yes, good, whatever, just gimme!

But in case anyone was wondering, that was the dimensions pulled of my 1975 N28.
