Solving Barient winch jam

So this morning I was hoisting my genny (with pendant installed) to go for a sail, when the halyard winch locked. So I disassembled the winch and I found a broken cotter pin jammed in the gear.
I look around and see only one place where it could have been. However, when I placed a new pin, the whinch would not work.
The winch in question is a Barient 18, installed on the mast.
Does anyone has an exploded view of this (or equivalent) winch that shows where a cotter pin should be placed?
Thank you for any help on this issue. BTW, I even forgot I was going sailing.
