I am trying to overhaul some SPD pedals for the gym where I do spin bike maintenance.
When overhauling these pedals due to them being super loose, I notice that the bearings are loose ball and tend to be worn or just get lost when removing them the axles.

I have a ton more that arrived to I can rebuild these things. But I don't know how to repack these things right.

Do I install the axle then just drop in the bearings until them are all in. Just throw some grease in there? Man, these are tiny 3/32" bearings.

Any help?

Here are some photos

I'd apply grease generously, then lust make the balls stick to the races during assembly. Since the balls are so light they will easily stick with some grease.. I hope :)
Just count them so there's not more or less then there should be.
If the races are worn out, an additional bearing ball might fit in...
good luck
