  1. I'm going to order a replacement. does this sound like the correct description for the part? Cousins numbers mean nothing to me, I don't know why they don't just reference the number on the ETA Tech sheet...
  2. I noticed the clutch where it holds the oscillating pinion looks slightly raised, is this how it should be or is it bent? Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
  3. Wow that was really great to watch, excellent job.. Is the watch back together now? Which lathe do you have if you don't mind me asking?
  4. You've confirmed a couple of things with those pictures, so thanks for taking the time to do this. Fingers crossed i'm going to get a chance to assemble it tomorrow, hopefully I can post a video of it working
  5. Thanks for the help, I do have those diagrams from eta. The cam orientation is totally different from the videos I've seen and also Lawsons tutorial, so not sure if it actually works in the position the diagram, which is odd.
  6. Thanks alot, as far as I can see I'm good to progress further.

  8. Is this the correct orientation for the chronograph cam? My first go was a fail so just want to check I’ve got everything in the right place before I proceed further In one of marks videos he states that he has engaged the cam (given it a slight turn with his tweezers), so he can fit the chronograph runner wheel. I think this is what I’ve done? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for your advice and pointing me in the right direction, I’ll watch one of Marks 7750 videos to help install the spring. The 7750 movements of today are a lot better than they were 10 years ago. I have some that have been reliable for 3-5 years and still going well. The only real issue is the sec @ 12 movements with the extra gears. Definitely not a real Rolex, I just buy the clones to practice removing the hands etc trying not to damage/mark the parts. A 7750 will not fit into a Daytona case. This one has frozen sub dials. I have a clone 4130 which is really very impressive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Looking again, this spring doesn’t look right. Would that be inline with my problem? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Pretty frustrated with this, I have a clone 7750. Everything was running well, however the chrono hand didn't completely reset to 0, literally a fraction off so I thought id reseat it so it was in the centre I was given some advice by another member here to hold down the reset button whilst gently pressing the hand back on, this would mean the cams were in the correct place and the chronograph hand should then reset to 0 after running.Great shouldn't take me more than 30 minutes. I removed the movement, popped the hand off and put it back on following the advice given. No drama. Now when trying to run the chrono the middle seconds hand just springs forward and stops dead. When I reset it, it goes back to its original position. What have I done wrong? At first I thought I hadn't pushed down hard enough and the hand was slipping so it was just springing forward, but it resets so has a good hold of the pinion. Have I pushed too hard? I was super gentle with it so don't think that's the case. I'm using a movement holder with the buttons at the side, and also the screws that sit in the base (what are they for?). Could I have knocked something out of place on balance side? These aren't cheap movements and do run well, so it's obviously me......
  12. Looking for recommendations for a tool to lift the sub dial hands of chronographs 7750 etc. I am currently using these Horotec levers, if they hand a bend in them they would be perfect (for me). Does anyone know of any other levers of this size or similar with a bend in, so you can actually lever the hands out? or an alternative tool? The other Horotec levers I have are too thick to get under the hands.
