    Thanks. I think I got it. Lifting the clock on one edge helped - I could hear which side made the tick tock sound even & bent the crutch toward that side.

    I dunno if this is relevant, but I noticed I could watch the pendulum rod swing between two posts on the back of plates and noticed it wasn’t even. Once I made it more even it seemed to improve. Was an easy visual to see.

    Sure, that's a fine way to visualize it. You just have to be sure the movement is level for it to work right. You could actually have the movement off level and it would still be able to be in beat using the other method.
