Stroke=Golpe, Choque; Thumbwheel=ruedecilla accionada con el pulgar


Explanation:
Stroke, even in the technical category can have multiple meanings. The above are the more generic. If the context is typewriting i.e. it would be "pulsación [de tecla]"; in boating it would be "golpe de remo" This is per Diccionario Técnico de Javier Collazo

Thumbwheel_pulsador; Stroke_pulsar, pulsación


Explanation:
I hope they help, if you're talking about a finger activated instrument, you would say "pulse el botón marcado ____" or "toque el pulsador".

Hope this helps, a little more context may be helpful though.

Good luck!

thumbwheel = rotativo / stroke = recorrido, carrera


Explanation:
If the phrase is thumbwheel switch, then "conmutador rotativo".

More context would be of great help in order to find the best translation for stroke.

Stroke = pulsación / thumbwheel = dial


Explanation:
For thumbwheel, I am assuming the reference is to the small dial on the side of a mouse.
