Disk II slide ball

I'm servicing a couple of Disk II (Shugart) drives that I have. One seems to lost it's little tiny ball for the stepping plate/tab which presses down in to the track of the stepping wheel/disk.

Anybody who knows which size that little ball has or know of a source who have them?

 

TIA!

Ball

Do you have another one you can measure with a caliper?

Actually I do but then I have

Actually I do but then I have to disassemble a lot which might bring alignment issues perhaps? But worst case scenarion I could do that.

That would have been sweet

That would have been sweet but when you look closer you see that they have the parts split and only 4-5 parts are left from that lot.

 

But, thanks anyway! :-)
