They came with a '91 Scott Windriver which according to catalogue should come with Wellgo LU 893 pedals, but all images in Google show a slightly different pedal (Scott is anyway known for speccing their bikes differently in each local market regardless of what the catalogue says).

I'd like to overhaul them as I plan to convert the Scott into my tourer, but I don't know how. Are they sealed pedals and kind of "forget until they break"? Thanks for the answers

Look very like some cartridge pedals I had. Look near the flat, if it's a seperate bit unscrew from the
body and have a poke about inside them.

The ones I had the spindle ran directly in the aluminium of the
cartridge so not a lot to do if they are sloppy, I carried on using them till the cages got
to slick to use.

You can drill a small hole in the outside end of the pedal body, just big enough to fit the pointy end of a grease gun, and inject grease from that end, the old grease gets pushed out the axle end.
As for adjusting any play, or replacing bearings, as above there may be a separate lockout on the axle end.
Unfortunately though, they may just be low end pedals and once they're dead they're dead.

They look like almost exact copies of XT M731 Comp pedals from the same era.

It looks like you can fit a cone spanner on the end near the cranks and possibly unscrew the axle from the pedal body (probably need to clamp the pedal in a vice to do this) then you should have access to the bearings. Is that a plastic end cap at the opposite end that could be removed with the aid of a small screwdriver?
I'd try this before drilling any holes like Jim has suggested but you've always got that as a back up plan.

I'd be very surprised if they couldn't be disassembled by the looks of them.

As above, undo that pedal spanner flat that screws into the main body.

See what you get.

And one of the two will be a left hand thread remember! I think it's the left hand pedal.

Thanks for the answers. I agree the pedals look like the XT M731 Comp, but they lack the removable cap at the outside end, so they can't be overhauled from that side. I'll give it a try to the inside flat spanner slot and we'll see what I get.

A lot of SPD pedals have no access from the outer end of the pedal with the axle secured by a threaded collar at the crank side. Yours look like the same setup from what is visible in the pics.

M735 normal pedals switch the this style (well they use the 737 spd axle iirc).
