Great news, With the extending of the hook, I again lengthening the pendulum by another inch, The clock is finally running slow. Which I can adjust by a pendulum bob screw adjustment.
Now I have a problem setting the ringing. I set it up for 3 o'clock, inserted the hands properly. Rang one ring at the 1/2 hour mark then rang 4 at the next go around, then the ringing increased beyond normal amounts. The ring count seems to migrate , now it is sounded 1 ring at the houre rather than at the 1/2 hour mark?

I finally got the time set. Funny thing, when I moved the pendulum hook up 1 1/5 inches. I actually had to move the pendulum bob up and inch or so to get the proper time. If I had move the hookup in the first place I never would have had to lengthen the pendulum. The things you gotta know... As a friend of my in college would say, "I wish I knew what I was doing?
Now I have to tray to set the hourly and 1.2 hour rings? Good luck here. Every time I set and re attach the hands the ring sequence works for several hours but them migrates to more rings. At one point it rand 16 times...Maybe it is set for military time.

Maybe it is set for military time.
Typically, these types of clocks only strike 12 times at max. 24 hour time shouldnt make a difference.

If its countwheel striking, it could have a small possibility it could be set up to be 24 hours, but I have NEVER seen something like that, so its very unlikely.

same with rack and snail striking. (which is unlikely in this case)


Wouldn’t be surprised if its skipping teeth at this point.
