Turns out the staff was too short as well. The balance wheel shakes out in the area near the center wheel and comes up out of the bottom jewel. I ended up swapping out the entire assembly for the Autocrat one. However the autocrat pivot was too tight on the top (this was the case on the Autocrat movement as well). I polished it down with a dremel and rubber grit wheel using a method I came up with a couple years ago. Now works great. Snug fit and moves freely. I did it that way because I don’t have a pivot polisher and my tail stock DC is stuck so I can’t make a polisher that way either. Will hopefully figure it out.
