I need to replace the 4 aluminum mast sheaves on my Dufour 31. They're so worn I'm surprised they even spin. Each measures 55mm x 15mm x 13mm as best as I can measure. Can't find anything close to that or even a single source with a good selection to choose from via Google. Mauri Pro Sailing are the only site that shows any kind of selection. But nothing close.
Any ideas of where to look or who to call would be very appreciated.

Thanks for all the suggestions. SloopJonB, the axle holes are the only unworn part left, likely because they are already fitted with an integral bushing. The outsides look like they've been gnawed on!

Thank you to all for your suggestions of where to purchase new metric mast sheaves for my Dufour 31. As it turned out they were a custom size. I got close to what I needed from Rigrite, but they were over $50 each plus shipping, and as indicated in an earlier post, the customer service was somewhat less then you'd hope for. Basically is was take these and modify your rig to fit.

So on a flyer I decided to contact Zephyrwerks via their website quote form. I thought maybe a few dollars more for something that slipped right in would be worth it. Within hours I had a response. The price was $114 for all four....delivered. I went back to ask a few questions, got great answers. Payment was easy, all via the net. Sheaves arrived soon after, were obviously high quality, and fit perfectly.
