You guys were amazing in helping me with my first project on the ST OG. Now, I need help on a 1920 Gilbert movement. We picked up the clock for very little at an auction, sight unseen and with no real knowledge of what we are doing. However, we are eager to learn! The clock had obviously been stored in a shed or garage for a very long time. Mildew inside the case, filthy, and the movement was frozen with grunge. After cleaning and reassembling, the time side is working well. However, on the strike side, the levers lift and then fall with no power coming from anywhere. I placed a small screwdriver behind the mainspring because it looked like it was bound and I got movement. I tried to show this in the first picture. There are a couple of other pictures, but I really don't know what to show you. I cannot get the strike movement to move in any other way. Could it be a bad mainspring? I am at a loss and would appreciate any help! Thanks!
