Over the past few years of collecting, modding and restoring 7S/4R/6R movements, I've run across recurring scenarios:
- Cap jewel flies across the room, cursing ensues
- Balance/hairspring limits the amplitude, QC issue (newer) or corrosion (older), needs replacing
- Movement is missing balance cock/assembly

In researching replacement parts, there's plenty of misinformation. The Seiko technical guides can provide all of this, but it can be time consuming each time to track down the part numbers, and find a supplier. This post attempts to provide a "cheat sheet" for these commonly needed parts, and documented interchangeability.

Sources:
I've included parts info for CousinsUK, as it's my go-to source. Obviously we all end up on eBay when there's no direct source. It would be great to get other suppliers documented as well!
