It would help if we could see a picture of the whole front side of the movement showing the rack and snail. From the picture of the parts, it looks like a bim-bam strike. Generally, you want to allow the fan to turn one revolution at a time until the "bam" hammer just falls, then you want the stop wheel to turn just a bit more until the stop pin contacts the stop lever and locks. (It helps to do this with the rack out of the way). Now put the rack back in place and install the gathering pallet so the pin has just cleared of the rack (so the rack can drop without hitting the pin) and you should be good to go. If the strike stops before the last hammer drops, or with the "Bim" hammer raised, make a small adjustment in the gathering pallet. Occasionally it may be necessary to reposition the stop wheel's relationship to the wheel shown (with the hammer pins).Thanks. I have the clock back together and I did find a photo that somewhat showed how the pins on the GP lined up with the pins on the wheel. I think it's close but the strike train seems locked up, so I know something is off, or everything is off. I'm in the process of reading Conover's "Striking Clock Train Guide" and Lloyd's ""...Bench Manual" to see if I can figure out how the rack and snail system is supposed to work.
Post # 1 shows a part with two sets of bim-bam pins. If you are seeing an unusually long warning run, then it is pretty sure that there was a second stop/warning run. If the strike hammer does not begin to lift during the warning run, then its a matter of whether it is worth taking the clock apart to add a pin. If one of the hammers does lift during the warning run, then you really need to replace the missing pin.You ,may want to anyway just because it is supposed to be there.It's hard to say. There might be what could be witness marks from a prior pin having been there.
I'm still testing it, but it seems like the strike train works properly. The train goes into warning a few minutes before the hour and half hour and it chines a number of times on the hour.
There are two points on the warning lever that collect that single pin at either the warning or after the chime strike. Is it possible that the extra half revolution of the warning wheel (missing a pin) is not necessary?
