Hello all, I picked up a Clarke, Gilbert & Co. OG Improved Brass Clock. I disassembled it, clean, re-bushed and reassembled. The weights that came with it are 3lb 2.7oz on the strike and 2lb 5.2oz on the time. Put the movement back into the case and found that the Strike weight is far to heavy. There are no markings on the movement. Appears to be the same as the Seth Thomas. Question, did I leave something out of the reassembly. The strike works with only a 2lb weight. the time side is working fine with the original. Obviously I'm new at this. Any suggestions as to where to find the problem would be appreciated. Thank you.
