    Hi Don,

    I have a two train GB marked P64. From the flex point if the suspension spring to the center of the pendulum bob measures 25.5 inches or slightly more than 64cm. I suspect that the P37 and P48 would be the pendulum lengths for your clocks.

    Those measurements for the P48 are 9.5" and 7" for the P37, so It may be safe to say those #'s are pendulum length. Thank you.
