Rebuilding LOOK pedals....new territory....

P7210003..JPGP7210002..jpgp7210001..jpgI have never tried to rebuild pedals before.....I know that one of these has lost all the bearings. Are these a fairly standard size? They don't appear to be too complicated. I tried to find a diagram for them but had no luck. Any help/suggestions are welcomed...thanks in advance!!

Those are moldy oldies. When you open them up check the axle bearing surface for pitting and the internal cups for the same. If they are badly pitted replace the pedals. The balls should be a standard size. Most are English measurements. 1/8,5/32, 3/16 etc.
