    Gasket advice from modders?

    Don't buy into those Chinese packs, your best bet is to pay the more expensive retail prices from cousinsuk, and alike, these are more to gen spec.

    Re-setting keyless works on A2836

    Please, call me, Micky Thats right, rotor (oscillating weight) then auto wind bridge, then remember the screw over the rear of the keyless work is opposite threaded to a normal screw, meaning you have to screw clockwise to remove. Obviously remember to remove the screw that screws into the main spring barrel. Use something like a toothpick to put a little pressure on the gold wheel whilst you unscrew this screw as sometimes depending on how old the movement is, the screw will unscrew with park or the barrel. There are thee small silver screws holding that bridge in place. This screw...

    You may of bent the brake lever, you can access this from the rear where its positioned.
