pedal bearings & dustcaps
I just took apart the original non-driveside pedal on an old 70s Raleigh Gran Prix and re-packed the bearings. The pedal's missing its dustcap, though, so the grease, bearings and cone are all exposed. Does anyone know if these pedals have the same size/pitch threading as the MKS dustcaps on sale through Harris Cyclery, or if not, do you know of any caps that might fit? I guess I might just resort to duct tape or something...
Also, I have a couple of other vintage pedals with their dustcaps still on. Anyone tell me how to remove those?
