    I have 2 Barr clocks, I just made new contacts for the one,,,it runs and keeps time but a couple questions

    1) it seems to cycle every 20 seconds, how to I increase that ?

    2) how do you properly adjust the contact screws ? I have them so they both touch at the same time but what is the proper way to adjust ?

    Thx

    Do you mean make it a longer time or do you mean make it a shorter time.

    Your problem may be in the movement. Too much drag can sap power
    from the pendulum.
