Guys, on putting the setting lever and clutch wheel etc back together, what position should it be in before reinserting the stem, ie so the stem is all the way out or partially out. I think I've answered my own question whist typing this up, but any input is always greatfuly recieved

It depends on the movement. Most should be in the winding position...others must be in the quickset position or set position to provide access to the part of the set lever which must be depressed to release the stem. When qs or set position is required, you have to be careful when reinserting...if the square post on the stem is not aligned with the square key in the sliding pinion, you may reposition the yoke/keyless works so that the stem will not fully seat and lock or other parts are mal-positioned, which will require pulling the dial side down to the setting parts to correct.
