I recently purchased an old Seth Thomas kitchen clock which someone had removed the main springs. When I get replacement springs I will take the movement apart, clean it and install the springs. My question is how do I determine if it needs bushings? Looking at it I can take to toothpick and lift all of the gears maybe as much as 1/32". I'm not able to tell if the old bushings are oval until I take it apart. Then if I do need to replace the bushings what tools do I need for that?
