Pendant tube and Fittings tool - spline tool



I'm trying to replace a pusher set, because the screw was broken. It's a 40 mm case housing a valjoux 7733 movement, a micro brand chronograph.

Is the diameter of pendant tube thread standard and will it fit the hole in the case, if I order "screw in chrono pushers" from Cousins?

How do I find the correct spine tool? I don't understand the "internal diameters" defined in each spline tools. It says the tools are made for tubes with external spline. 

I know that the external diameter of the "star head" of the tube is around 3.3-3.4 mm. Can somebody define "spline" in this case. 

Alternatively, I can maybe replace just the screw if the thread and length matches. 

Best regards

Spline is the gear type cogs on the outside of the pushers. If it's internal it should be on the inside of the tube. Think you need something like this. https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/pendant-tube-chronograph-fitting-removing

Could the "internal spline " measurements be the measurement  of the tool itself, ie the internal measurement of the tool will fit the external size of the pusher?

    • Is this the right tool? https://tinyurl.com/qsbp7ys Thank you
    • If you are all in the mood for a little bit of Soviet era horology, then I'd like to introduce today's 404 club fixer upper. A Raketa 2609.HA based Sekonda, complete with the obligatory USSR marking on the bottom of the dial.  The gold plated  case (stamped AU9) and the near indestructible Raketa movement make these little Sekondas rather pleasing and rewarding  pieces to resurrect.  I think it too enjoyed its well earned service and good scrub down, as it is now sitting at >270 degrees, beat error around 0.1ms and somewhere around +30 sec per day without me adjusting anything. It is still sporting the original high dome crystal, which took a good polish and save for a few tiny blemishes looks almost new One other great thing about these (I have a couple of similar examples) is the dial. It is both easily readable, and classically elegant at the same time. A station clock for the wrist. Maybe the 1970s weren't completely devoid of taste after all.  
    • I cleaned it by soaking in Home Depot naptha and pegging by hand, 2 rinses. Demagnetized the whole thing, as well. I'll dig back in with both suggestions and report back any findings. Enjoying the process.
    • also;  there several books on the internet on that subject.  good luck.  vin
    • Always hard so make a guess... Anyway, I think the problem is on the dial side, i.e. the dial train (cannon pinion, minute wheel, hour wheel, intermediate wheel). Could it be that the clutch wheel doesn't disengage properly from the intermediate wheel that drives the minute wheel when you set the time? If so the intermediate wheel may bind up the minute wheel making things slow down and then stop. Well, just guessing. Anyway, I'd check the dial train (motion works) and the keyless works. I think your idea of removing the cannon pinion to see if it solves the problem is a good idea. If it doesn't help you'll know for sure the problem is with the train of wheels or the escapement. Good luck and let us know of any progress or any new observations.
