Thanks for all the replies and help, The case looks like a carriage but I realize the movement should not have a pendulum.
The movement posts to the dial which is screwed to the case. I can't get it running at the moment, however I have not spent much time with it?
Posting a couple more photos...
Looking at a carriage clock that I've had and want to get it up and running, Have the movement out of the case.
I am not sure if there is something missing from the strike mechanism, there is a small spring wire on a pivot, and not sure where it would clip or attach to.
Does it appear that...
Thanks for responding, I'm not sure I see or recognize the washer your referring to?
It is this bent brass washer under the cannons and the front plate?

Hello to all,
I have an Ansonia Capitol wall clock that the minute hand spins freely, Pretty much all of a sudden after running for months?
The minute hand just falls to 6:00. I checked that the minute hand hole or center might be worn out but it is fairly tight.
Also when I turn the minute...
I can see that the pin and wheel tooth position need to be in a position that it encounters the tooth at just below the tip of the tooth above the pin, so It won't let the wheel/detent past so as to go further than just the one day? Hope that make sense.
I think I may have achieved this...
I'm getting closer, now it moves 1 1/2 days on the calendar hand. I'm thinking the gear is not meshing correctly. Think the pin is not mid point on the calendar gear?
Looks like I will need to fiddle a bit more to get it right?
That is what I Found was wrong in the earlier thread. I realized the pawl was pushed behind the wheel. Now that is corrected it moves the date twice, but not at the same time, so I assume that the pin needs to be positioned correctly?
Actually as I have been watching the date hand, it moves 2 days ahead? Not sure if it has something to do with the hand on the cannon or barrel in relation to the pin. But it has been doing this every day since i got the clock working?
I have a New Haven Calendar clock, the calendar barrel or canon spins freely on the hour barrel. I'm not seeing what keeps the hand in place once the pin on the adjacent gear is away from the calendar gear teeth?
Hope that makes sense?
