I have installed a Linden 7012 mantel clock mechanism in a small cabinet clock housing. I removed one of the strike rods to have a single tone rather than the double bim bam tones. I am thinking that it would be safer to bend the steel strike rod than the strike hammer lever to adjust the gap between hammer & rod. And even though i tried to be careful, gripping the lever with small nosed pliers and bending with another similiar pair, the lever got jammed up inside the strike gearbox. I removed the gear box & refit it all back together. This unjammed the lever, but now at 12 it strikes only twice. All other hours strike properly. I don't know what to look for being off location in the mechanism because only the 12 strike is faulty. I hope i dont have to live with his anomality....
