Re: Worn holes for the Winch Pawls

Take it to s fab shop like zz4gta said they should be able to weld back the missing material and then machine a new hole for the pawl. I assume it is aluminum. To me it looks as though that pawl did all the work. the other looks to be stuck or the spring is broke or missing? the arm should be pushed out away from the pivot point into the the center hole when the drum is off the center post
