What is the broken piece? Some parts swap between makes.

The ones that look like a mini 45 rpm record?

Get a piece of plastic and cut yourself one.

Just make a spacer yourself - Get a hunk of UHMWP and two hole saws of the appropriate diameters - one with an OD the same as the spindle shaft and one with an ID the same as the OD of the bearings (or a tetch smaller). Cut the large disc first then use the pilot hole from it to align the drill bit of the smaller one - Voila, a nice slippery, concentric UHMWP washer of the right size. Make as many as you need to stack for the proper thickness.

Remember, it doesn't have to be super precise - a bit of float between the upper and lower bearings is very usual in all the winches I've serviced over the years. If you can get it to 1/8" or so it should be good to go and probably better than the stock piece in a winch from before UHMWP was even available.
