    Welcome Eddy, for what I can see is the bushing for the gathering palet worn out. Is there any bushing work done? Maybe the bushing is to tight.

    Can you go for a less wider spring and somewhat stronger, so the spring is in the barrel. Is the bushing in the barrel oke or worn out? You have only one bushing to keep the barrel straight.

    Kienzie Movement

    Hello, and welcome to this forum. Was the end of the spring worn out or broken off. If it was broken off there could be some problems with teeths or arbors.

    What is the strength of the time side spring? Normaly the strike side spring is stronger. I work most on european clock, for I live in the Netherlands. On most european clocks the barrels are closed with a cap. So the spring width is smaller than the barrel inside heigth.

    Your palet at the right side is slidely misadjust. The flat side should in line with the escapewheel pivot. The left side palet seems correct to me.

    Gustav Becker Strike arbor parts

    How sloppy are the gears between the plates? There is a lot of force at the arbors when winding. Try to rebush the time side, see if this is improving.
