I acquired a Colonial Grandfather clock. When I moved it I did not mark the weight's positions. Two of the weights are 6 pounds and 1 of the weights is 5 pounds 4 ounces. What is the correct hanging position for these from left to right? The model number on the back is stamped 600 (heavily) 2 228 (lightly). TIA

The two heaviest go on the outside and the lighter in the middle.
Is there a general rule that the lighter weight goes on the time train?
What if there are two equally light and one heavy? Would the heavy run the chimes?
I ask because I've got a GF here and Im not convinced that the weights were correct as found.

That's correct: heaviest is for the chimes.
