    Click spring broken in two grandfather movements.
    1161-853 BS time cable barrel
    And a Howard Miller
    AJK 06k chime cable barrel

    My question is how do I get these barrels out
    Of the movements in order to repair click springs.
    Thanks for your help. This is my first post.
    I hope I covered everything.

    Please send in a photograph of the front of the movement so we can have a look.

    Some of these movements allow you to remove the ring that holds down the ratchet wheel, and then the ratchet wheel itself, and then the winding arbor itself. After that the cable barrel, or whatever it's called, will drop out from between the plates.

    Otherwise, you'll have to disassemble the movement to get the barrel out.

    I wonder what damaged the click springs.

    Okay. Grant1 didn't quite understand the procedure here and thus sent his movement photographs to me instead of the forum. So I've posted them here.

    Looks like one of these has extractable cable barrels, or whatever they're called, but I don't know about the other even though it has those limiting gears on the front. (I clearly don't know what they're called, either--they're not Geneva's)

    Never found a bad click spring in one of these, but Timesavers sells them, so I guess they fail.

    The cable drums can be removed from the Hermle 1161 by removing the "E" clip on the back end of the winding arbor.

    The H-M/Kieninger will have to be taken apart.

    It's best to replace the complete cable drum assembly, if available.
