Subject: [CR] Overhauling Super Record Ti pedals

  I'd never tried overhauling Record pedals before, and today I did it for th e first time with Super Record Ti spindle pedals.  I've done bbs, heads ets and hubs, so I wasn't expecting any difficulty...but I was surprised by how difficult it was to set up the bearings on the outside of the peda l (closest to the dustcaps).  The loose bearings have to be in precisely the right location in order for the cone nut to engage them correctly as you thread it on.  If you have too much grease on the bearings or the con e nut, the bearings get pulled/pushed out of place as the cone threads in.   It took me a few tries to figure out how to get it right.

Are all Record pedals as difficult (or easy depending on your level of ex pertise!), or are the Ti spindle pedals different?

Is there a trick to this that I don't know?
