Re: Worn holes for the Winch Pawls

It's an aluminium drum - take it to a machine shop and have them build it up with weld and re-drill the pawl opening. It shouldn't take more than a couple of small tack welds to close in the circle enough.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
