Over the past week or so, I've been working on my 1956 Hercules Royal Prince and decided I'd take my first stab at disassembling a block pedal and reassembling it. Needless to say, the pedals were pretty gnarly and needed to be degreased before I soaked the parts in phosphoric acid to remove the surface rust.
I didn't have bearings on hand to finish putting them back together, but wanted to see how they looked side-by-side. Needless to say the difference is very noticeable. With that said, I have some questions:
- Does anyone here buy the rubber inserts or know of a source for them? or
- Do most of the folks here just purchase new pedals and, if so, where?
