After cleaning out the dirt, rodent poop, etc. I took it apart and found the pendulum hook was bent causing the pendulum rod to hit the back plate. After some adjustments it's been running for a few hours and keeping good time.

It's missing the punch mechanism so if anyone has a spare :D laying around let me know.

Some pics attached.

Nice find, Paulo!

I have been trying to find an original Gledhill-Brook dial for my clock for quite some time. I just think it would look better with a Gledhill-Brook dial rather than a later Simplex one.

Congrats on your clock!
