I just filed mine, it does not appear to be hardened.
Be ware of leaving any dags on it - I did and it wound up not slipping over
to the next tooth on the wheel, it just pushed and pulled the same tooth.
What you are proposing sounds like a speccy job.

Hi all

Has anyone undertaken a repair of the engagement face of the pawl that
into the teath on the push rod, thereby actuating the self ajustment.  I
am doing up another set of callipers for another car and I have noticed that
on all my current spare bits, the face of the pawl is worn.  This may limit
correct engagement and hence ajustment.  Naturally I don't want to
and fit a set of callipers only to have them fail in this regard.  I have
contemplated welding a small blob of metal onto the face and grinding it
to shape, and silver soldering on a piece of tool steel.  However both
would be difficult given size, correct angles etc.  Perhaps someone has
to buy a new part, if so from where?  All suggestions gratefully received

cheers Roger Matheson
