Following my first success in stripping ,cleaning , lubricating , indexing and phasing a 219 I believe I am an expert in accutrons.
Boy is that a lie.
I have indeed finally had success in turning a dirty movement that was gaining 40 minutes a day to one that now seems dead accurate after nearly a week including replacing a pawl assembly . All with your help
It was more good luck that it ended up so accurate as I do not have the proper electrical tools for tuning.
I am half way through reassembling my second fair dinkum effort and have a couple of questions .
1. After finally figuring out an oiler bent 90 degrees at the tip is a perfect collet tool I am surprised at how easy it is to move the arms even on a very very dirty movement that hummed only on arrival. Are accutrons susceptible to shock ?
2. On the 219 the pawl post does not move .What is the procedure for lining up the jewel where 2/3's sit just above the index teeth . I do believe the collet is properly seated on the post.
3. How important is it to get all of the green (oxidisation?)off the index wheel .
I have run it through the ultrasonic (toy) for 9 minutes and there is still some on the flats. The teeth seem ok.
4. Following 3 above the index and pawl jewels are clean ,previously covered in green , but a little cloudy looking . How can I rub them without dislodging or do I need to.
