The pawl.....never would have guessed the name of that!
Mine broke, but it wasn't from not having the clutched thoroughly pressed.....it just decided it had enough life and went Kapluwee!
I made a copy of it using two large washers, held together with two pin-type things I got off an old chainsaw, and ground down the washers to the replica plastic one. I suppose if someone had a welder, it'd be a better way to make one, but I don't. I just laid the plastic pawl on the washer, traced it, and ground it. I drilled a hole for each pin and pounded them in and ground those where I needed them. That thing will last longer than the bike, I bet!
I think pvc would work pretty good too. What did you use for the pins? Maybe plastic rod just glued in? That would work.
Don't feed the bears....
