Default New Bearings for Foot Pedal

Anyone know where I can find replacement bearings for my old Tama/Camco foot pedal, or at least the bearing sizes?
Thanks ,Matt

Check out McMaster-Carr, if they don't have it you probably don't need it.
I'm not sure what type of bearings your pedal has, and you may have to take a few measurements, but you should be able to get exactly what you need.

608 2RS,
608 ZZ,
They're used in roller blades&Skateboards,
2RS= 2X rubber seals,
Both end of the bearing,
Sheilded (2x metal sheilds on both ends).The rubber sealed version is better/far superior,
As it retains(holds) grease in better&quieter,
The sheilded bearings have a faster speed rating.
ANY bearing company/shop or hobby will carry/have them instock,
Ask for:FAG/SKF GERMAN made bearings,
As the chinese won't last as long/be as good!,
OR any of the USA made brands: ABC/BCA/FAFNIR/NDH/L&S/TIMKEN,
Or ***:Koyo/Nachi/Ntn,
Euro: GMN/FAG/INA/SKF/SNR,
Uk: Hoffman,/R&M/RHP.

You ONLY need/require/want standard ball bearings NONE of the others,
As they're a waste of $ for your application,
I work in the bearing industry for over 40+yrs.
