Default Repairing a Sonor Phonic pedal?

Hello! Haven't logged on for a long time, good to be back.

At a place where I just started teaching there is an older Sonor pedal that belongs to a Phonc set, maybe early 80s.
The ball bearing of the main axle on the right side (where the spring attaches) is knocked out, does anybody know if this can be repaired, maybe with standard machine parts? No expert here. I remember another one a long time ago that came apart at the same point, with all the ball bearing parts scattered all over the place. No fun.
The original spring adjustment screws are missing as well, so I'm not sure if this is worth repairing at all.

it looks excatly like this (this one seems to miss the adjustment screws as well?):

I'm quite sure this would be a standard metric bearing that can be purchased from a machine parts and equipment supplier. In the US we have McMaster-Carr. Those are very smooth action pedals-I would fix it.
