Levezzi 12 mm wire standing rigging fittings

Hi All .... i have a 2007 FP Levezzi and am replacing the ‘boat to mast’ standing rigging. Specs say 12 mm wire is required. The chain plate has a 16.2 mm ‘pin’ hole and the Z-spar mast has welded fitting for the top stay mount with 25mm hole and s/s bush to take it down to 16.2 mm dia hole.
Trouble is i cannot seem to find any fittings in Aus. that bring 12mm wire to a rigging screw/toggle for chain plate and swage toggle forks for mast head.......all seem to use a 19mm pin.: confused: i can reem out the chain plate hole and perhaps weld the 19mm toggle fork holes up slightly and reem to 16.2mm but this is a lot of work?? Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks Martin appreciate the info but i think it needs a toggle fitting to align. Went through Blue Wave catalogues but another dead end. Cant believe i have the only Levezzi that has been re-rigged and not found this problem? I must be misssing something i guess.

You can not reuse your old toggle? You mean something like this:
