The upper blocks on my H18 Mag main are shot. I have access to a triple block with a becket to replace all three upper blocks. So do I need to reinforce the block hanger on the boom? Which hanger should I use? Thanks for any advice!

The existing block hangers should be fine, use the middle block hanger. One thing I always did was to tie a safety line around the boom and through the upper block shackle just in case the hanger didn't hold. Not a necessity but for safety.
