Does anybody know the Harken part # for the 40mm single stand-up block I would use to convert my system to 7:1? Also, it isn't clear to me if this block swivels or is fixed. Does the block connect to the becket or does it replace the becket? Thanks.

They swivel. Its comes with a metal bracket installed that prevents the swivel but it is removable.

Thanks. Is yours set up to swivel or do you prefer it fixed? Does 2652 below look like the block I need?

I misunderstood your question, i have an 8:1 and the the single standup block is fixed.

Is this what your looking for?

My fault, I said becket when I should have said eye strap. I need the spring stabilized 40mm stand-up single that connects to (or replaces?) the eye strap.

2652 is close but not quite right. I purchased it to upgrade my 6:1 to 7:1, and while I made it work, it's not the perfect fit. The eyestrap provided with it has hole centers at 1 1/4" which are too close together to align with the bolts that go through the 150 cam cleat (1 1/2"). And if you go up a size on the eyestrap, the spring provided is too small to fit around the loop.

My solution was to purchase the low profile eyestrap (201) then cut the spring in half and reassemble. Works, but the block does favor one side or the other rather than standing straight up, though it doesn't seem to affect performance. I think the appropriate component parts are 2650, 137, 071 - though not quite certain on the 071 spring.
