    Servicing an 8 day Jerome & Co. time and strike with multiple problems, bent second wheel, time side, needs upwards of 9 bushings and a good cleaning. The warning wheel stop pin is very worn (looks about half gone) and I would like advice on whether to leave it or repair it. I suppose if it lets go it would not do a whole lot of damage.

    If a repair, how would I go about it?

    Thanks

    Ron

    I would be more concerned about how it got they. Looks like stop lever was not completely clearing the pin when the wheel was running. If you have a lathe I would probably make a replacement pin, otherwise it will likely run OK for a good long time. Make sure it is tight.

    To replace, turn a new pin that looks like it was originally was with your lathe. Punch out the old, press the new pin in, peen on the back side.

    put a shoulder on new pin, the shoulder serves as a stop to prevent pin sliding through. Then cut the length so that the part that fasten to wheel about 1/16th longer than wheel thickness. Peen the pin to wheel by inserting pin shoulder up with wheel on top.
