The original blocks were made by Seaway and are no longer available except used.

You want something like the Harken H2611:

40 mm sheave diameter, single ratchet w/becket and cam cleat.

They're pricey - about $100 US each.
Ronstan and Holt-Allen have similar styles, although they're just as expensive.
