Rear brake pedal

Greetings! When I got my bike, it had an aftermarket rear brake pedal on it. I got a NEW pedal with plastic bushing and new brake pad from HD. I reused the bolt, cup washer and pivot shaft. The pedal is loose side to side and sloppy on the bushing. It seems the pivot shaft is a bit too long and a bit smaller in diameter (a few thousandths is a bunch). I tried reusing the bushing that was in there, same thing. The pivot shaft was a bit rusty like it had been in for a long time, I cleaned it up with scotch pad and lite coated grease. Thought I would ask here before ordering a new pivot shaft, cup washer, bolt, and bushing from HD. Anybody seen this issue, parts updated? or changed? Thanks for any input!

Can’t help you with the pedal problem but an introduction about yourself would be nice.
Ugh......What are you working on?
