Does anyone know why a 4r36 movement costs nearly double that of a NH36 movement? From my research, there does not seem to be any difference mechanically?

There is no physical differences in quality or materials. You pay the higher price for the 4e36 because it is Seiko branded while the NH36 is sold as a third party movement by SII.

Thanks for the info! I probably will just use the 4r36 for my SKX781 upgrade because my watchmaker already has those in stock.

Is there anything else I should be on the lookout for when getting a new movement? I do not want to have a case similar to @SC-Texas with his somewhat erratic running Orange Samurai.

Along with the movement, you will need a new stem/crown. The existing on will not fit the 7s26. I believe the replacement comes from a SARB065 or similar.
As for the movement...it's just a gamble you will have to take.

I've been told by Spencer that this is a problem that is randomly endemic with the 4r35 and 6R-15 movements.

Therefore, since it is randomly distributed you may or may not have the problem. I get this information because I asked the same thing about replacing the 4R36 movement with the 6R15.

Thanks for the information. I have a stem/crown for a second generation Monster (that uses the 4r36) coming from fellow member Duarte1.

That is unfortunate. I think I will update my Orange Monster with a 4r36 once my stem/crown comes in. I will also try to source a 6r15 and the appropriate stem crown for my SKX173. That watch is nearly 10 years old and needs servicing anyways.
