On a pair of Suntour Sprint pedals, does anyone know the ball bearing size?

Most pedals use 1/8" balls.

This is bigger. It seems to be 5/32".

Sprint pedals, however, IIRC - and if Velobase is correct, require 5/32" balls.

I'm pretty sure this is right, as I remember consulting velobase when rebuilding a set of these about 18 months back (and cross-referencing this info with what was in my pair already).
