  1. As usual, great help from you all!! Thanks a lot everybody...... :-)
  2. Yes, that is right, I have orderd wrong spring, thats it..... thanks oldhippy!!!
  3. Nope, I always check with a plier to see if the arbor is hooking up....
  4. Okay, then I understand a lot more: 1. The spring I got from cousins have not with the extra part, like on the photo. 2. The inside the barrel is pretty woren, lots of strips inside. Suggestions what todo? Find new spring? Find new barrel?
  5. Had not asked if I could wind it six times, and the spring slips.... This slips on the first turn, of course....
  6. Cheers Mates!! Im doing service on a Alpina 582, and the main spring slips over in the barrel. I have bought new main spring, but it stills slips over inside the barrel. Can somebody tells me how the original main spring looks alike?? I had to buy on from CousinsUK, but I would like to see how the original spring was sat togheter insiden barrel. The spring was missing so I only have the barrel...
  7. When I look at the day corrector or the setting lever with wheel, it looks like its climbing on the minute wheel while its griping into this and it sort of trying to get to the right sort of.. I have to take it a part again..
  8. Its only one way to set the setting lever
  9. The clutch wheel looks good with pointed teeth, but of course I dont have any new to compare with..The date corrector is new..
  10. Cheers Mates! I have problems with that "setting lever w/wheel" doesnt manage to drive the canon pinion and minut wheel. Its keeps jumping uo and down while I rotate the stem, but If I take it towards the clock it manage to drive both wheels. Both the clutch wheel and minut wheel looks ok. I tried another canon pinion that are looser, then it was no problem, but then the canon pinon unscrew it self out of the grip of the minut wheel. Somebody having the same issues??
  11. That I can measure when comming home, but I get the stem almost all the way in, but when I try to screw down the screw for the setting lever, I can screw that all the way down, but the the stem will not hold in the movment, seem that it not get in grip sort of...
  12. Cheers mates!! Had to get new winding stem to an Omega cal. 342 , beacuse not original crown. Got an replacement from Ronda, but does not fit. Tried to fit the stem yesterday, but Im not able to get in in right in the movment. The original just go right in every time, but the new Ronda stem will not go properly in. Are there anyone that have some ide why this not fit? Can the notch in the stem where I have put red arrow have somthing todo with this?? Its slightly smaller on the Ronda stem... se photo
  13. And the story in going further on.... I need an new escapement wheel to this same watch, when CouseinsUK say Balance Roller, Pin Lever, Ordinary (799), BFG 582 Is that the same as escapement wheel???
  14. Thanks for al help pal.... I will check out the CWC diver tube and crown, I have a crown though, but I was hoping that I might find one original, but that seems long fetched maybe... like he T-Rex... he he ... How is things in Sweden?? Are the still winter or??
