I recently purchased a Gustav Becker tall clock. I have cleaned the movement and have reassembled it. The time side works fine but the strike side is my problem. With the heavy weight attached the strike does not work properly the weight pulls the mechanism too fast and the weight fall uncontrolled. I have another Becker tall clock but the works are different. This works has a square hole in the front plate that holds the count for the rack. It also has two wheels at the bottom of the works that I thought originally were just guides for the weight chains but I am beginning to wonder if they have something to do with slowing down the fall of the weight on the strike side. I would appreciate any info you can give me. I will try to attach photos.
