My original from the factory '86 pedal had worn almost all the way through the bearing AND the bolt before I noticed it! I might still have it, and if I do, I'll post a pic of it. Really amazed it held, and that it didn't break on a gig. I now have the DW bearing on both my old Yamahas, and they're better than new. Thanks, Ben!Thank you for posting this! I love these pedals and just bought the DW bearing hub assemblies for all of them. I never even noticed that it was made from plastic. Thank God I never broke one on a gig! This will make this simple pedal even better.
