The pedal saga continues! After thinking of just replacing the pedals and mentioning that in an Excelsior group, I was challenged (in a respectful manner) by a few to “rebuild” the originals. So I will accepts that challenge!
The pedal assemblies are very rust-welded but percervierence pays off so far.
The top cone came off on both pedals just fine.
No wear on the slots.
Bearings were a pile of rust. They all came out but are like little rocks!
Soaking in my new 50/50 mix of ATF and acetone.
Other side pedal.
Wala! One almost done…
Still a long way to go. More soaking.
More work tomorrow on these.
New rubbers are ordered so I am an optimist that I can save these!
