Re: Worn holes for the Winch Pawls

That's not worn, that's broken. You could try and take it to a fabrication shop. They should be able to weld/press in a bushing and cut a slot in it. Looks like there's enough material left to make something work. Machine shop/ fab shop should be able to help ya.

And "a better mouse trap"? The thing lasted 30 years with minimal/no maintenance, I'd say the mouse trap is pretty well thought out. How many 30 year old cars do you have sitting around that never needed parts replaced or repaired?
