    Unusual count wheel problem

    Thanks Bruce, yes I'm happy! Your right I should have got my lock pin and maintenance pin terminology right, sorry about that, I didn't mean to confuse... The lever arm with the scoop wasn't riveted entirely central to the main lever arbor which meant it was made slightly lower than it should be...

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Hello to all, I've fixed it thanks to all of your inputs and advice. For the record, the stop and warning pins were OK, not bent. As TH had said I should try lowering the count wheel hook so that the lever would be lower and stop the warning pin from being hit. Well I couldn't because the...

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Video of the count wheel in action below I can't rotate the lever upwards 90 degrees as the lever arms don't then locate with any wheel pins and the square lugs at each end of the lever no longer line up to mount the count wheel hook arm and the minute hand arm on the outside of the plates...

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Vv I've added another video on YouTube (link above) which shows the problem of the warning pin hitting the lever and stopping the strike. I can't shorten the hookie on the count wheel because the lever would hit the warning wheel arbor inside (at the scoop). If anything the hook needs to be...

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Sorry I wasn't too clear, the pin hits the back of the shovel. (my simplistic thought was the shovel scooped the pin but I must be wrong, also I see wear marks on the back of the shovel indicating I was wrong too!) The count wheel is turning anticlockwise so its definitely running the right way.

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Thanks to everyone so far for your comments, it's really appreciated. I tried to load an mp4 video but it wasn't accepted so I will strip the clock down tomorrow to get you guys a closer look with some pictures. .

    Unusual count wheel problem

    Unfortunately the count lever never reaches the end of the trough because the warning wheel is stopped first by the lever. The movement was incredibly dirty and oily. Hadn't worked for years before I bought it just before the lockdown. I've had to replace all the bushes and now the clock runs...

    Unusual count wheel problem

    The lever controlled by the cam on the minute hand puts the clock into warning mode OK, the lever is above the warning wheel pin and the other part of the lever which has like a scoop end to it lines up with the pin on the second wheel(?) . Then when the minute hand reaches the hour, the lever...
