Fender Rhodes Mark 1 Sustain Problem?

Fender Rhodes Mark 1 Sustain Problem?

I just bought a Fender Rhodes Mark I Stage 88. It is in fair condition and am planning on restoring it. I am having problems with my sustain pedal. The sustain/dampner plate I noticed has a hole in the middle. Where it looks like a screw goes in the middle. I think this missing part might be why my sustain pedal is not working properly. I believe this is the part I am missing: Vintage Fender Rhodes Center Damper Pin

But I am not too sure.

What is happening is not all of the notes are sustaining, just the lower and upper keys are sustaining with the sustain pedal. The problem notes that dont sustain with the pedal are mainly in the middle of the harp.

At first I had thought it was because my sustain pedal was on carpet, so i put some cardboard underneath of it so the pedal had more room to push down, but no luck.

Any help would be appreciated..
