Re-Building the Old Douglass Halyard Winch

I have an old 1955 Douglass Flying Scot #243. I have the old style winch on the mast. The jib pawl and the main pawl are not holding when locked against the winch spools. I am looking to see if anyone has re-built one of these winches. Any informatiion would be quite helpful. Thanks Rufus
