Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

So since I did this 1st thread http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=151275 I have done about 20 sets and have learned a lot along the way that will help you guys out.  This should anwser a lot of the questions I get daily about the subject.

Start with a good restorable set like this one. 
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/3.jpg
Using these methods this is the set above
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Restored%20Suntour%20XCII%20pedal%20sets/6.jpg

Disassembly
1st take the pedal cage screws out. I like to use a T handle allen wrench and it has not failed to do the job yet.  Many people have reported to stripping or breaking the head off in the pedal.  I have never experienced this and hope I never do. 
(Edit; 25 May 2010)I just lied lol http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=226626
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10490.jpg

Once the cages are off, screw the caps off (allen wrench on the end works best rather than screwing off). Then remove the guts. 
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10505.jpg
Two wrenches are needed.  15mm and 12mm or (an allen in the spindle thread end and a 12mm on the nut end).



Next I like to do the spindles
These things 90% of the time are a rusted mess.  I have found if you acquire a set that was missing caps you have to soak the nut, race nut, and washer in navel jelly or vinegar to clean rust. 
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10496.jpg
2nd from the bottom is NOS alloy
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/2323.jpg

Depending on the amount of rust you have two options.
Wrap the threads in a small piece of material and insert into a drill
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10511.jpg

For light rust hit lightly with 2000 grit sand paper then polish still using the drill for rotation.  Don't go to far or the brass under the chrome will start to show. (Then you have to strip the chrome mad) You might have small black specks when done but they are not real noticeable except up close.
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10497.jpg

For heavy rust you have to strip the chrome hmm This is a time consuming process.  Use the spindle in the drill method and 100/600/2000 grit sand paper. Do not do the threads or area inside the bodies! [b]After all chrome is off.  Polishes out with a drummel tool or rag/drill method works beautifly!
Stripping and polishing yields great results but you work your as$ off.

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC12907.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC12909.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/1111.jpg



Next up the original cages
I hit them with 320/600/800 grit (depending on how deep the marks are) then send them off to the powder coater ($12-$18.00 set).  Powder is more durable then paint on a pedal that will be used.  Again 90% look like this
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10504.jpg

After powder coating I polish the cage and apply a decal that UltraHIVE sells http://bmxmuseum.com/user/UltraHIVE
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Restored%20Suntour%20XCII%20pedal%20sets/11.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/3-1.jpg

Or I use aftermarket sets.  Urchin, DK, Crupi, Trog, etc......
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/2.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC12269.jpg

Now the bodies
Take the bodies to the sink and with hot soapy water scrub them with a old tooth brush or green scratch pad.  Some have imperfections that need sanded out and some just need a light sanding.  I use 800/1000/1500/2000 grit and that does the trick. Followed by a lot of polishing using a drummel tool or by hand.  Use the polish generously keep it wet.  It is a mess but worth it.  Get a lot of rags.
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10502.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10849.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC12903.jpg
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Restored%20Suntour%20XCII%20pedal%20sets/13.jpg


Now the screws
These are 90% of the time rusted also.   
I have found there are two types of stock screws SunTour used stamped and un-stamped. The difference is quality and the Suntour stamped seemed to come on the braced bodied sets.  Plain or stamped with a single S came on the braceless bodied sets.

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC12766.jpg

The stamped ones are a harder medal with an almost type of reinforced edge around the hex hole that helps avoid stripping.  The un-stamped; I thought where replacement screws but I now know I was wrong, they are original.  The latest set proved it to me.  They where tight, had the red locktite on just one side of the body threads and had never had a allen put to them.  The body threads where perfect.  You can always tell if the screw has been out and re-threaded by the body threads (soft alloy).
The biggest difference is the unstamped are weaker made and strip very quickly. The chrome finish is thinner also and more prone to rust.  Probably the companies way to save money in the end.

Cage screws are 4MM W/ .50 PITCH and hard to find replacements.  I don't think anyone makes them any longer. In NOS condition I have seen them sell for $35.00

Sand face down on 600/800/1000 grit then hit with polish and drummel tool.

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10516.jpg



Reassemble the pedals
I use just a little in the race of a thick teflon based grease (holds bearings in place during re-assembly)  11 bearings per race 22 ea. pedal.http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10517.jpg

Then on the spindle end, insert little black rubber seals (cleaned in hot soapy water) followed by the spindle.  Then on the cap side the race nut, washer, then the nut (a little dot of blue lock tight applied).  Caps at last (I clean caps with hot soapy water/toothbrush)  If rashed lightly sand 2000 grit followed by plastic polish and a rag.
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10506.jpg

If you use a decal on the bodies brace-less are the foil and braced are the black long foil.  UltraHIVE and 4mula1 have been known to sell these and I stock up when they do.
http://bmxmuseum.com/user/4mula1    http://bmxmuseum.com/user/UltraHIVE
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10509.jpg



Now re-install the cages
Do not over tighten the cage screws! If it starts to strip, immediately back it out and put line tape on the screw threads and a little lock tight then just snug it.
http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g31/duane_2006/Suntour%20restoration/SDC10510.jpg



Hope this helps answer all the questions.  If anyone has tricks/techniques or something to add feel free.

Here are some sets I have done using these techniques. ENJOY............

Re: Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

Forgot to add a couple things.  This is extreemly time consuming and a lot of work, so when you offer me $100.00 for a set this is why I say no.  Also I don't have any spare 9/16 spindles or caps.  They are rare and hard to get by themselves and I pay anywhere from $35-$75 for sets to start with.  I do have two spare sets of 1/2 in spindles if someone needs them.

I never use thread tape, I always use teflon thread dope. It works the best. Nice tutorial though.

teflon thread dope? Are you being funny?  The proper way is tap and dye but I don't have one that size.

NO im not being funny. Teflon thread dope on all threads.....  obviously you use a tap and die on the threads before, im talking about once all the threads are cleaned up. Believe me, i have fixed a thousand threads and know what works.

Re: Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

Great write up! I was wondering if anyone knew if Suntour screws fit Victor bodies? I have a set of Nos cages I wanted to put on some Victor bodies until I could find a decent set of Suntour bodies. I'd like to put some allen head screws in as the original phillips screws do not seem to fit the recesses of the XCII cages. I looked around Westlakes the other day real quickly but didn't find any screws that fit.


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.

They are the original black bodies.  I have a set I am restoring right now. I don't have a spare end cap but might have a spare set of cages.

Re: Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

S.S cage screws can be found at my local Ace hardware store (I've bought a few sets, and yes they are the same just without the stampings) I think they were around $6-$7 for a dozen.
And KKT dust caps(and others) work if you sand down the threads a little.

Re: Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

Nice work!  (actual pedal work & write up).  Question....you say aftermarket cages like Crupi, Trog, DK, Urcins.  Where do I get them?  I see I can email Crupi, but I don't know if that's how you get them?  And how about the others?  Or is it more like look in the FS section/Ebay until someone finally sells them?  My boy won't race his Hutch because of pedal slip (worn cages) - who could blame him?  I'm just about to go find someone to laser cut me a set.

BTW...dust caps...I bought a repop dust cap from a guy living overseas, and it worked real good.  Looked close to original (only distinguishable up really close).  I'll check and see if he minds me listing his link.

I used green Philwood grease as I do on everything.  Don't know if it's right.

My own restoed pedals (not as good as yours, but surely time consuming):

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Nice work!  (actual pedal work & write up).  Question....you say aftermarket cages like Crupi, Trog, DK, Urcins.  Where do I get them?  I see I can email Crupi, but I don't know if that's how you get them?  And how about the others?  Or is it more like look in the FS section/Ebay until someone finally sells them?  My boy won't race his Hutch because of pedal slip (worn cages) - who could blame him?  I'm just about to go find someone to laser cut me a set.

BTW...dust caps...I bought a repop dust cap from a guy living overseas, and it worked real good.  Looked close to original (only distinguishable up really close).  I'll check and see if he minds me listing his link.

I used green Philwood grease as I do on everything.  Don't know if it's right.

My own restoed pedals (not as good as yours, but surely time consuming):

Nice job on that set.  I go to extreemes on my sets cause I sell them.  The aftermarket cages for the XCII are not made any longer and are expencive if you can find them.   You just have to look on FS section/Ebay like you said.  I don't think it matters which grease you use.

Re: Detailed/How to. Restoration thread Suntour XCII pedal sets!

Hope theres a machinist here that can make those aftermarket cages . I like the dk or urchin , it looks beefier than stamped crupi IMO


Ive been using park tools grease and they are not as smooth than the original grease that was on the pedals if theyre not dried yet. Kinda gritty..maybe I need to put more

I use a thicker teflon based grease and just use a little bit in the races.   Works great. They get better with use.

Thank you.  And the contact for the dust caps as many may know is joe6187.

I like the DK and Urchins better too.  However, if there are any machinist who are going to make something...please just make the original Suntour XCII.big_smile
