HI All, Colin Hinz makes a good point. Damon didn't say anything about
the unit being a Standard. But his explanation of the problem sounded
so familiar that I figured it must be a Standard.
Also, I recommended a lag-type bolt. What I should have
recommended was a stainless steel bolt.
Lastly, inserting a bronze bearing into the brass (or steel)
pedal linkage would be a great idea, but it's not easy to do
and would most likely be best handled by a professional
(Thanks for your comments and advice Colin)
