    Hi Chaplin37,
    It’s probably me but I don’t know if I’m understanding you correctly. With the cap jewels removed and the balance cock tightened down a little take a look from the outside of the balance cock and from the dial side of the lower plate using magnification and check to see if the pivots are at or near the end of the hole jewel? In other words are the pivots fitting into the holes? You should see the end of the pivots near the outside edge. If they are try holding the movement in a vertical position (not dial up or dial down) and check to see if the balance moves freely. We need to determine if the pivots fit into the jewel holes or if they are just riding on the outside of the jewel.
