Default Ghost pedal issue

Hi--just taken delivery of a Ghost. The beater that came with it was basically jammed in its slot--it couldn't be adjusted and had to be removed with a hammer and nail--but even on a new Ludwig beater the shaft is too thick for the hole. Does anyone know what the proper beater is? Thanks in advance.

Thanks--it's the weirdest thing--I have tried several beaters and they're all too thick for the hole, which looks completely normal. I might have to try drilling it out or something. Mine is a pre-Ludwig Ghost; don't know if that makes any difference.
