So today I traded my demo pcs for unsealed animal hamiltons.
I got the bearing tight once then I had to take the bolt off to go get another bolt for the other side.
The new bolts are the wrong thread I guess but now I cant even get the regular bolt tight enough against the bearing.
Is there like a trick to tighten ing them or are the unsealed bearings just gone to shit.
Also sorry for another thread.

if the new bolt was the wrong thread, and you forced it on anyway, then its stripped and your shit out of luck.

No it goes on a certain amount then stops so I just took it off.
But I cant get the bolt that comes with the pedal to significantly tighten the bearings

tighten the cone to where you want the tension. then tighten the locknut. try using grease. and the washer that should have come with them between the cone and lock nut

Nut / thing that moves freely / bearings
Without the nut the pedal stays on but wobbles even worse.
