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

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.

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.
