Here a thread on SA about winch repair. Some pictures of redrilled pawl holes.
Uhh... I bought parts for my 1985 (27years old) Lewmars from P2 just this past summer. OP could at least verify their lack of parts with a simple phone call. I'm only suggesting an easy fix. If they are actually devoid of such pieces for the winch in question, then nothing lost.
