CRASH COURSE IN CLOCK REPAIR
1. Take off the top plate.
2. Take several pictures, so you'll know where the parts go
3. Take the parts out. Try to keep the trains separated.
4. Clean the parts. Peg out the holes in the plates.
5. Stand all the wheels up in their original places.
6. Put the top plate on top. Get the two bottom pillars in their holes. Put on nuts for a turn or two.
7. Worry the top pivots into their holes one at a time. Use a "pivot getter" of some kind.
8. Start at the bottom of the train. Start with the pivot that has the most resistance to being moved.
9. When all the pivots are in place, put on the other pillar nuts on.
10. Celebrate a job well done. :)
