Interesting point. The pinion on wheel B makes no contact with any adjacent gear. Maybe we need to see the full train assembly. What kind of clock is this?wheel b should be under wheel a. if it will not fit under a then perhaps wheel b is not a time wheel. maybe it should be in chime train
Thanks Simon when i get back home i will have another go but last time I couldn't get it in that way but i didn't take the clutch off and wheel A I will try that
Thanks Willie i think i have that washer you are talking about this is my first 3 train movement and normally i take photo's but when i took the plate's apart the wheels just fell offIf you turn "B" over it will be in the same space as the barrel ...
I'm with DS,. Wheel "B" has to go where it is and under wheel "A".
On the center shaft, some clocks have a spacer/washer between the wheel and the pinion (for smoother clutch action). I'm guessing this clock once had that washer and now it's missing.
I looked on the ebay and found one which was in a bit of a state but i was able to see some of the wheels and it shown the fly that way i will have another look if i can find it.thanks shutterbugBut now you have one fly upside down. Something is still wrong I think.
Hi Mike will check that when i get back i did put them the same way as the photo of the ebay movement (i think)Paul,
Seems to me that just the fly arbors have been swapped around, but the flies themselves are correct way round.
Looking at your last pic, the chime fly pinion is barely or not touching the warning wheel teeth, and the same applies to the strike fly pinion.
Might just be the way the pic was angled.
Hi Paul...the hole the bush needs to go in is 4.39 and the pivot is 2.06
Much appreciated that Simon yes I have cutting broaches not sure of the size of plates and at my daughter's until Tuesday night ok if I contact you Wednesday i know the bushes I've had from Counsins have been the same thickness for the English mantle clocks I have worked on, have been the right thickness but i will check when i get home thanks . PaulHi Paul
Well, that doesn't seem to match anything from Bergeon or KWM. Nor does it match any hollow bushing rods from my usual supplier in the UK (Cousins).
I can turn one up for you if you like. What is the plate thickness? And - do you have a set of cutting broaches? If not, I'll make the internal diameter 2.16 to allow for 5% tolerance. I'll make the OD 4.36 non-tapered, so you may need to use LocTite (or more punching ... ) to secure it.
Send me a PM (via 'Start Conversation' from my avatar) if you'd like me to do that.
