No, those won't work in a pig rig to get to 7.122 MHz. Those SS-40 crystal sets are actually 16+ MHz crystals used in a hetrodyning receiver environment. The pig rig is direct conversion, so needs crystals on 40 Meters. I hope all of that makes sense.

If you read the instructions for the Pigrig, you'll see the 3 crystals used in the filter are "highly matched and quality checked" (instruction 9). In the transmitter alignment section (instruction 15), Diz claims the filter frequency is within 30 Hz of the operating frequency. Any set of 3 crystals, unless similarly matched, won't work as well.
When Terry orders the crystals for the 7.122 watering hole, Diz will have to similarly match three of the four crystals for each order. I don't think any group of three crystals marked 7.122 will work.
