    Are both pinions the same size?
    The one on evil bay has the outer pinion engaged.
    Are both pinions soldered? It looks like the inner one is.

    I don't think the one on evil bay will work. The fan has
    cutouts to clear the lower lantern pinion.
    When out of the notch like that it will hit.

    Did some more searching. If you search for "old orginal New Haven w/1 hammer" you can see the same movement with the lantern pinion and the notched fan. This appears to be the way it came from the factory.
    I think the 'weird antique new haven' has had modification, same as the one we're discussing here. Odd that two movements have has the same modification though.

    Well Tinker I have tried the item number and skyped my son in law to try and we can't get any joy with that item number. Not sure if it is because we are in canada or what. I assume we are talking about ebay and not craigslist or...?

    Hate this cat and mouse game that these site rules put us through.. We are an educational site and trying to help each other and attempting to reference things that are on other sites. But we have to keep it covert so that in the future folks reading this thread won't have a clue....Opps did I just say this..

    I just looked at it on eBay again. It is still there. Ends tomorrow. It can't be the same movement unless the OP is trying to sell it. I might buy it just to figure the crazy thing out.

    I just did the search RC gave in his post #5.

    One difference between the OP's movement and the 'other one' we are discussing is that in the 'other one' the pinion and wheel are in mesh. It is a strange movement with the strike control lever bracket stuck out the side on a bracket. Perhaps this is a limited production model that used a fan arbor from a different model movement and rather that tooling up for something different they just added another pinion where needed.

    Perhaps the pinion in this thread is cracked and has just slipped out of alignment. Can we learn if the pinion is indeed loose?

    Looks like there is solder on the arbor under one of the gears. Maybe been moved.

    I'm with you Willie. I have worked on a lot of New Haven movements and I have never seen a factory set up that looked remotely like that. I'd be looking for a fan and arbor from another New Haven movement to replace what the OP has.

    I am prepared to live with this minor inconvenience to ensure the message board retains it's educational focus and doesn't turn into a for sale site.

    Peter,
    It looks like there may indeed be two of em! Clocks are full of surprises, that's for sure.

    I found several in the sold section. And all of those have the pinion.

    I remain unconvinced Willie. Seems to me there would be no margin for error even if the two pinions were pressed together. And given the amount of end shake in these movements, I doubt the manufacturer would have gone with that design.

    Yes Dave, I have searched my records and completed auctions and I cannot find a match for this setup.

    Perhaps if someone can identify th clock, then Trans' books or a search for other examples might shed some light.
