Centerboard Control Blocks Needed- 1988 Capri 14.2

Anyone know where I can get a new set of midget blocks for the centerboard control? I tried Catalina Direct and they did not have any. I tried and ordered a set from Catalina Yachts but they arrived way too big and when I called them they said that's the smallest they had.

See attached, any advise would be helpful, or perhaps you have a set of used ones that are not broken like mine. I could easily rig a new simple system, but I am trying to keep my restoration as original as possible.






I would make an effort to improve on what was there and at the same time match the mount holes. The plastic sheaves on the old blocks are sensitive to UV. I think all of them on my boat have disintegrated. Better blocks would also turn easier.
