I got a vienna regulator with an old german movement. Refurbished the case, now I'm about to clean up the movement. However, before taking a movement apart I like to make sure I am able to put it back together properly. The striking hammer is in a very strange position in relation to the gong, and I am completely confused. Since I have never worked on one of these before (I've done dozens of Cuckoo clocks, that's what I'm best at), I am not even sure if the hammer is bent incorrectly. I've uploaded two pictures to show ya'll, and get some advice if possible. The first is from the back, showing the hammer's position, and some strange thin wire next to it. The next picture is from the side, showing the chime wheel, with the hammer's arbor, and a very small spring wire (which I am not even sure which side the thin spring wire should go on, the top or bottom).
I know none of these are clean and need attention. Like I said, I haven't done anything to it yet, just been running it to see how the heck it's supposed to chime, and I just cannot see it. I won't take it apart until I can figure out this chime organization.
Thank you all for your help!
