initially I made a nifty drawing for you but something was bothering me so I found the tech guide. So the spring does go where I say it does and then you need the jumper in the right place. One of the things that helps when putting these together is to put the jumper under the disc. This way can get thing in place and then push the jumper back against the spring and then slowly pushed the plate in place. Because trying to put it together and then put the plate on top seldom works and parts fly all over the room.

Great!  Thanks....  I have tried many times to do  this, but it not an easy task as long as I don't have the hole in the disc, see drawing, so Im drilling a hole at the same place, and that should do the trick...

    • Thank you for the link hippy.  My concern at this point is how to hold the balance in the lathe.  Chucks like on a lathe or a pin vise are good at holding simple cylindrical objects, like drill bits or a cylinder of whatever you're about to cut into. But a balance is a complex surface and I'm having trouble envisioning how exactly it would fit into the lathe chuck.
    • I am guessing this is akin to tuning a piano and is an acquired skill. One thing I saw on a 7750 I worked on was the finger was up high up on the gear. Not all of the finger face was touching the gear. I thought it was bent and I was thinking about bending it down. I decided to leave it alone as it was working. Matt
    • Bulova Seaking Automatic from 1975 I believe. Just restored and serviced this for my next door neighbour. It's 'on test' for the next day. He told me he got it for his tenth wedding anniversary and has been in a drawer for 25 years or so. Going to give it back to him tomorrow evening. I hope he will be pleased to wear it again. 
    • Normally you would hold one side of the balance staff in the chuck in your lathe while sharpening the other side with an Arkansas stone . This is the type I used and it's what you need. https://www.hswalsh.com/product/arkansas-stone-type-triangular-size-92mm-x-10mm-ta75
    • Hi everyone, The last two 7750s I've worked on have had the same issue where the watch will stop with the chronograph engaged right when the minute counter is going to roll over. I know this is a common problem and is usually solved by adjusting the minute counter jumper. However adjusting the jumper did not solve the issue. Either I am not oiling something correctly, or there is an issue with the finger on the chronograph wheel on both movements. I can't think what else could be a problem. I have attached a photo of the last movement if anyone has an idea by looking, as the chrono wheel finger is visible. Both adjustments look fine to me, but I would really appreciate any tips someone might give.
