Default Seiko 394 (Similar to 6217)Movement stopping when dial down

Hi Guys.

Working on a Seiko 394 (Similar to 6217). Did a full movement service. For some reason it stops sporadically when face down. This is when the movement is not cased, so not an issue with the hands hitting the crystal.

I'm going to pull it apart again. Any ideas what I should look out for?

1st thing I look at is the balance and pallet fork when mine won't run right when tilted or flipped.

I just pulled it apart an noticed the barrel is really sloppy. It could be locking up if its hitting the top or bottom plate. I might have to pull my finger out and learn how to use my jewelling tool.

That'll do it. Don't forget pics of using the jeweling tool. Would love to see em.
