Hi, there is meant to be a gap there, just make sure the bolt is done up nice and tight. If it keeps working loose you could try some threadloick on the bolt

The spindle (axle) is usually tapered so that the pedal arm (crank) gets pulled on tight by the bolt. As EE says the gap on the spindle is quite normal.

If you have the nut that goes on the end of the tapered bit, just do that up tight and put the cover back on. As long as theres no play in the pedal arm once tightened then its done.

I had a problem with the left one on my bike, went ar$e over t1t avoiding crashing into a small person who ran out in front of me, knocked the pedal which then fell off complete with crank after a few miles, could not get the damn thing to stay on for more than a couple of miles at a time no matter how tight I made it. tried locktite, drilling & tapping the crank to add a grub screw, all to no avail, ended up replacing the crank & it's been fine since

Had a similar problem on a bike not worth spending much on and welded a washer to the crank which held the pedal on.
That did the trick.
