I am working on a wall clock that has "New Haven" stamped on the movement. After cleaning and oiling, it still only runs for a while(1-2 hours) before stopping. The verge escape wheel will catch randomly, and I am thinking that the pivots are maybe to loose. I have not rebushed a movement yet, but was going to do this one. The front plate has large bushings (.168" OD) on several of the pivots, and are not a size that I see in the parts books. The escape wheel seems to be one of the loosest. The back plate does not have any bushing yet. Can I rebush the larger bushings with the KWM 2.7mm od bushing? Also, the verge is sort of crooked as it hits the escape wheel, would this stop the clock? The pinions are showing wear also, how much is too much? Here are some photos.
