Replace main halyard

my main halyard broke. The masthead has two sheaves. is the new halyard threaded between the two sheaves? Or over the top sheave then between the upper and lower sheaves?  Canot find any photos of how it was rigged.

Halyard

i assume you have a halyard with the shackle on it.  Start the non-shackle end of the halyard over the top sheave.  It then runs down in front of the top sheave, and aft on the bottom sheave.  It then runs down the mast track to the bottom reel on the winch.
