I am trying to restore this Herschede grandfather clock movement. It is ticking fine now but the chime and the strike have got me puzzled on how to properly adjust them. Right now the fly wheels need assistance to get them going but i think its just a problem of things not being in proper position. They do not move into warning and then the fly wheels need a little push to get moving. The chimes for the first three quarters will operate with my assistance but when it comes to chiming on the hour the lifting lever gets wedged down on the intermediate wheel
and stops everything. I have posted the youtube link above so you can watch what I am talking about.
This is my first Herschede movement I am working on so I may be a little slow on any suggestions on how to get the movement properly adjusted but any help is much appreciated.
