    Seiko 6138-0040 Bullhead

    Hey, bought this 1976 6138-0040 bullhead in good condition, but it has a strange issue, it all works fine, except for the on of the pushers, when i press it, the pusher does not come but, i need to wiggle it a bit a push it out, all the mechanisms work fine.

    I need to replace the spring or the pusher with the o-ring and the spring?

    Here it is in the second picture with the pusher stuck

    The pushers are known to stick from dirt build up. You will need to go inside by taking the back off and removing the holding ring to check this out. You might find that its not dirt but a problem with the spring or even a combination of the two. Tip- make sure you have your fingers holding the pushers in when you lift the holding ring out, the gently let the pushers out. If you dont have hold of the pushers when you lift the ring out they can sometimes fly away!
