I have a British Anvil movement Stamped 3263 and below that Cable-Clock This clock was given to me about 2 weeks ago and they told me it haws not worked in 25 years. I dismantled it cleaned all. Reassembled. The owners told me the person that worked on it said it needed a piece casted? I have every thing running smoothly. But I am having a bugger of a time setting up the chiming? I have looked at pics. on Ebay and other sights at movements to see the outer count wheel location 4,8,12,16 in the relation to the stop inside the train.

Have not gotten to that as yet it is skipping through the wheel no mater where i lock it on the end shaft. I tried before the lock position and after the drop lock position on the gear inside the movement.

Is it not stoping at the correct time?
new to this , I may have posted in the wrong area . So when i rotate the hour hand the chime keeps going past the drop for 1/4 hr and so on then when the things mesh the link drops in the chime front wheel and stops and the stop inside the plates have allow it to drop but to try again ,it just passes all the quarter hour marks?

Say it, think it, write it, regret it. Won't forget it.

Anticipating the movement is clean and devoid of wear, it must be set up to ensure the chimes and strike work correctly.
The pinned wheels within the plates must be precisely timed, otherwise it won't work.
In any instance, this thread gives some insight as to how it's set up:

Had to separate the plates on this very movement yesterday to adjust the clutch and then had to resync the chime. Quick version if the #59 post seems too long - 1. Turn the minute hand until the longest center cam star arm is the next to lift. 2. Disengage the locking plate. 3. Run the chime until it locks on the inside cam. 4. Put the locking plate back on at the 3/4 mark.
