    Nucejoe reacted to 456eec in Ronda 763 Thai Movement Remove Dial   
    Thanks so much. That worked a treat and the new movement clicked right into it's place. I have replaced the hands and put a new 364 Energizer battery in and reassembled with the original crown and it is running beautifully. I have fitted a new original Ripcurl band I got off Ebay and am about to take it home to my wife to show her how clever I am! She will be thrilled as she is very fond of the watch as she bought it while our family was on a memorable holoday in Vanuatu about 13 years ago. 
    Thanks again!

    Insert a safety razor in between the movement and dial, work it around the movement, wigle the blade to detach.

    The movement you are referring to is called " levet set ".
    Lever set watch had a pull out levet at about 1 o'clock.
    To set time remove just front of case, with finger nail pull out
    lever then with crown set time. After settling time push lever
    back in and then replace front, now crown will only wind watch.
    Search YouTube lever set watch and see many videos.
    A very good video of my mystery level at 3 oclock is on
    YouTube: staying sane video " 1917 Elgin 16s grade 293 assembly.
    at between 15 and 16 minutes into video Mr Sane clearly
    moves rim lever to what I call down position . This allows setting
    time using crown. I have asked Mr Sane what lever is for.
    Not sure in he will answer or knows answer, but I would bet
    he knew to move lever down.
    The movement in his video is same as mine.

    Nucejoe reacted to MrRoundel in A little cry for help , 1 question from novice .   
    In the event you need a time-sensitive answer, I'd guess that watchweasol did mean to use the stem that came with the replacement movement. Perhaps that is because it will not have wear on it that the old one will have. It probably won't matter much though, providing the watch it was in was winding and setting well before replacing it. If you use the new stem you will likely have to cut the stem a touch and fit the crown.
    "Set" position means with the stem pulled out in the position to set the hands.
    Good luck.

    Personally, with a screw-down crown like that, I’d just re-use it as is. It may be thread-locked in place. 
     
    I always aim to keep them in the inner stem position when removing, but it’s not essential. Gently twist the stem when you insert the new one.

    Hi Gary at all times unless testing the movement leave the battery out, whilst manipulating the stem into position .  It will be best to use the stem provided with the module. some of the modules require you to put the stem into set position before removing as this keeps the clutch assembly and associated gears in place to enable an easy fit of the stem. Failure to do so causes the clutch to drop requiring re alignment before the new stem can be fitted. To do that you need to remove the calendar work to gain access to the keyless work.  I have attached the tech sheet which covers this movement for you.        good luck

    And further to Nucejoe's remark
    It could be the Cannon Pinion being loose. It slips at calendar change time.
    When changing the time is the crown really easy to move the hands? Often a sign of a loose CP.

    Loosening the pallet cock screws did the trick! She's going along lovely now. Surprised as they weren't esp tight. 
    It's all a learning curve, can't thank you enough for this. You've saved the second half of my hair being forcefully removed!

    A check list of sort . 
    Turn the barrel manually.
    Trun center wheel , just grab a spoke in tweezers and turn.
    If it didn,t run,
    Loosen the cock screw a turn, do the same with fork bridge or check the endshake on balance staff, fork arbour and escape arbour.
    If you take the fork out, balance should turn like ten complete oscillation at least.

    Alum disloves steel or if you ready to invest 70 bucks on a dedicated brgeon tool, otherwise it is down to applying penetrating oit and see what you can do with needles and sharp poiinted screwdrivrs, sometimes heat-quench helps.

    I'm only 17 so money is limited. This trick saved me a lot of problems. Changing the balance staff would be a pretty convenient skill though..  Thanks for all the help!! Keeps excellent time now

    Brushes wear out  anyway and are renewable and should be available at material houses, commutator contact surface if rough  can be turned on a lathe, you should also check the shaft and bearings/bushings for wear and turn if neccessary and grease ( heat resistant grease) 
    The coil also is to be checked electrically.
    I would check above mentioned parts for wear, if alright just clean grease and instal new brushes, if worn and you have no access to a lathe, you got to let someone who dose ,fix it.

    looking at the parts list at least they have a nice picture of the front and more important the back.  So I snipped out the image for you if you want to release the power you definitely have to get to the dial side.

    Hi Max   Like has been told to you put the watch back to the status quo and start again following the advice you have recieved.        To assist you on your quest I have enclosed the tech sheet for the oris 292 hope it all helps.      cheers

    Bummer. Well, not really. As nice as it would be to have such an easy remedy available, the real lesson is don't waste time on crappy movements. It had been in the drawer for a decade or so having never been worn (it looked as cheap as I'm sure it was) with no further recollection of its provenance, so to my mind that's a $0 lesson.

    Open the second link john provided, it should show the housing and the whole assembly. 
    I can access the pics you posted.   
    Remove the housing to the jewel assembly. just unscrew and push it out.
    insert the spring in the groove, sometimes the groove lets you hinge the spring over to lock it in. Do not force the spring in.
