Thank you for the info,
I have just stripped, cleaned, rebuilt & lubricated my Barients 1x Barient 10 , 2x barient 17s & 2x Barient 24s, Despite their age and some neglect by the previous owner they are in great shape.
I like to have spares for all my kit on board & that is what prompted the query about the pawls. I have found hutton-arco and they have been very helpful by sending me documentation
about by barients. The only reason I was looking a lewmar pawls is that they are readily available locally. Hutton's prices are very reasonable but shipping
them from Australia
will cost more than the pawls :-( But I guess you are right best get the original stuff.
