Help I need some information on a spring driven cuckoo clock movement?

I am working on a spring driven cuckoo clock. I know on the weight driven cuckoo's you need to run them with the pivots loose, but with a spring driven model do I treat it as any other mantle clock in that I should bush loose pivots?
I would appreciate any advice you have as this is my first experience with a spring driven model.

Yes, re-bush sloppy pivots. The reason most cuckoo's like to be sloppy is the weights hanging from thin plates tends to warp them. Yours won't have that issue.
