To all clock maker/Repairers who may be able to help me. I have not been on the site owing to poor health but now better trying to complete a Grandfather Repair that was started on last year. It has been full overhauled and it in good condition as such but am unable to get it to go for any length of time. I had to replace the crutch for the pendulum but that was no problem. It trips fine but just does not seem to want to go. Any Suggestions ? Have tried to attach photos but with no joy. Pleas advise

Most every one has troubles with photos. Most often it is a size
problem. Get them in JPG format and less than 1.5M and
you should be alright.

I assume you're talking about the chimes not wanting to go? Try loosening the screw in the back of the movement (the drive wheel for the chime) and let it run without the chime and hammers influencing it. Let us know what it does.

Some photo's of the crutch and escape wheel with the pallets would sure help. I assume you know how to set the beat?
