i also noticed that the pedal is a little bit sloppy so i was looking for the flanged bearing so it would have some surface to sit on. and since there is not much force on the bearing it could be hold in place by some JB weld or epoxy.and everything is hold together with the bolt anyhow.the important thing would be spacer between the bearing that it rides on the inner race so when bolt is tighten it would not jam the bearings.one other issue might be clearance behind the cover.i figure for maybe $25
in material depending were you get the bearings.i seen china bearing for a  couple of bucks to $25 for a SKF bearing
 i am not able to work on this for a while so i hope somebody beets me to it

Not sure the existing non bearing is not sealed perhaps that is the issue.  So perhaps a rubber cup over the bolt and around to the gear lever.

Ok not thought it through.  I used to be able to 3 d print in rubber but havent for ages so i could make a complicated seal.

A grove in the washer used to seal the end for a ring but not sure about the other end.

how about this.Roller bearing in center and 8x12 lip seals if the pivot hole is not to wore out or old fashion oil soaked felt
you also have to use a 8 mm stud as not to put any axial force on the roller
