old eggbeater. rebuild kit. WTB.

i've got an old (i think) set of stainless steel eggbeaters. the ones with the black rubber UNthreaded plug, a allen headed little screw, a circlip and probably a very small cartridge bearing and maybe a sleeve bearing in there somewhere. i THINK these are pre 2003 models.

anyway, i can't seem to find a rebuild kit for this model. they look, superficially, like the 2003-9 models but the innards are different.

google, in this case, is NOT my friend.

the only inkling, is one i've found at Niagara by way of Amazon, but i'm not sure the one they have listed is in fact the one i want, i am also distrustful of their description as it refers to a different model. so.....

anybody been through this? or have any ideas?

Have you tried emailing Crank Brothers? I've only had good experiences with their tech/warranty department.

I got a kit from my bike shop, it had a Phillips head screw to replace the allen head, but other than that the parts worked fine!
