Can’t Re-Insert Crown Stem in 7S26 Movement

Question

I removed the movement and was able to insert and test the crown stem. 

I took it out to place the movement in the case.

Now I can't get the crown stem to go through.  It stops just before the stem o-ring.

I pushed on the release divot while trying to re-insert and that didn't help.

I hope I don't have to take the whole movement apart to figure out what's wrong.

Is the movement sitting higher or lower in the case so the stem is not lining up with the hole in the case?

If so you may not of installed the glass correctly.

If the alignment is out figure out what is not in place.

Agree. The movement in not lining up correctly within the case. Subtle issues may be the cause like rings upside down or something like that.

Warning, don’t be too aggressive with he release button for the stem as you can disengage the whole setting mechanism, and that means removing hands dial and the whole 9 yards to fix it.

Not that I have done that a few times!!

I’ll try re-installing the crystal and see where that gets me.

Unlikely is that. The crystal seats over the index ring which is turn presses on the case. Neither one touches the movement ring at all. In fact, unnoticed by most, there is a small space between the dial and the index ring. Just take care that the cut in the movement ring goes under and in fact positioned by the short protrusion of the pendant tube.

I had to take it apart down to the keyless works.  The setting lever was out of place.

 I’ll put it all back tomorrow.

Thank you  Mark  for your step-by-step video on the 7S26 movement breakdown and reassembly.

I wouldn’t been able to do it without your instructional video.

Thank you for this rewarding hobby.

    • Good to be here, found this place while trying to find out what or where I was going wrong with a Seiko 6119 movement,  just wondering how come i have never seen it before.  I am Francis married with 3  children, all under 10, yes I started late since I am 55 and wifey is 33.  Started off doing pocket watches and somehow now getting into Wristwatches.  Still trying to work that one out. Bought a lot of movements some 10yrs ago and have had them stored away, and now we decided to put down roots, i dragged it all out and now trying to learn more and more as I go along.  Francis Downunder.

    • The stem looks like thread worn at top, but might be just the angle of picture. As for the hands not turning, possibly something has slipped on mechanism, like a spring. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Longines_23ZS might be worth comparing the picture with yours. 
    • hi I'm working on a longines .caliber 23zs. It was not working and i noticed if you moved it the balance would start and the hands revolved until the second hand reached number 5 where it was catching. To cut a long story short i have removed the hands and refitted them and there going fine. But when i went to reset the hands nothing. I pulled he crown out to the position to move the hour and minute hands and there nothing happening. it turns freely but the hands don't.The crown has now come off as well but that screws back on though it seems loose. I have cleaned the stem and examined it to the best of my knowledge and it seems fine. It slides in and out when i release the screw holding it into the movement. I have tried to download docs from cousins but they only show dial diameter.  I have also googled it but there's not a lot out there.Not what i need anyway. I'm just wondering have i missed something obvious that should have been done.. Any advice gratefully accepted. cheers gary
    • if you have a tap and die set,   (and a lathe) just thread a hole in a brass rod and you have the perfect "screw holder".    doe's not work on left handed thread.    vin
