Citizen 8228A (Miyota) winder parts.

Question

Is it possible to purchase parts for a Citizen 8228A (Miyota) movement. I have a rather beat up old example, which is missing the tip of one of the winder gears.
I suspect the answer is going to be, no, you would need to find the parts from another damaged example.

I did look on Cousins, but the part I need is not listed.

Initially I suspected the only issue with it was the balance, and spent a little time tickling the hairspring back into shape, only to then figure out that while the winder made the right noises, it wasn't actually driving the mainspring, due to the missing pinion tip.

I just saw your reply, and your generous offer. I may be able to pick up another movement for less that it would cost to ship the part. I'm currently hovering around the seemingly infinite pile of cheap Indian ebay numbers looking for one that might become a suitable donor. Failing that, then this watch will end up as spares for any others I encounter in the future.

Don't know where you live. But have a pile of old 8200 parts. So if you like i can send you a pawl lever. But i see now that HSL offered a movement. We both live in Sweden so it's the same with shipping cost.

Thanks again for the offer, but since the value of the watch doesn't justify any significant spend, or arguably,  any spend at all, and since there is no rush to get it fixed, I'll just keep an eye out for a suitable donor, or perhaps make this my donor for some better looking piece.

I will of course keep you posted if I do fix it, or even if I experiment with micro-spot welding pins to shafts, since that sounds like an interesting experiment, and I should have the where with all  (a suitable controllable power supply) and the know how to control voltage, current etc to make a stab at getting that idea to work.  I see much smoke and possibly strong language in the crystal ball for 2019

lol.. sounds like a cool project, guess the construction of the spot welding power supply isn't as big of a challenge as trying to keep the small pin in a correct position whilst welding. In my past I have made lots of control boards to different CNC machines so if you need help with this project just give a howl. ;D

      I'm looking for help identifying the movement in this vintage citizen watch. I picked it up from a flea market and quite like the look, especially since finding Citizen watches of this age seems somewhat rare.
       But, I haven't been able to figure out a model number so that I can start looking for a replacement stem/crown. I can find a serial number of some type that reads 360278 and the letter T under the balance. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi friends,
      I have a 1970's Slava Soviet made watch my uncle gifted me when I was 9... I have kept it in mint condition all these years and for some reason I decided to have it serviced.
      I took it to a watch repair shop (had 5 stars) spoke with the employee and specifically asked to have the watch back in the same or better condition, when I got it back 6 weeks later I noticed they had scratched and damaged the bezel and changed the spring (even through I asked to call me incase any part needs to be replaced) 
      Now I need to replace the bezel so thats its not chewed up, the factory does not make parts for it and I am distraught as it was in perfect shape and it took someone else to ruin the watch. I only blame myself but it hurts ?
       
      Please help me find the bezel and get it back to its former self as much as possible.

      Hello! The outer part of the rotor on my grandpa's lucien piccard seashark (AS 1580 movement) has come loose. Is there any way to repair this rotor or must it simply be replaced?

      I have a watch movement that I have hunting for a case for a long time now. I bought the movement rather cheaply as I absolutely love the patina on the dial. The movement is an Wittnauer 11arg (as 1361). When the rotor turns the automatic assembly slips (or maybe the mainspring). The pictured gear slips when the rotor turns. I can still wind the movement by hand however the automatic assembly slipping I believe causes the mainspring to unwind. Does anyone know what is wrong/ what I can do to remedy it?
      Thanks for your help,
