I want to try to bring back this Joggili Souvenir Weatherman Cuckoo Clock. I have replacement bellows that work, but since it came to me from a family member as you see it I have no idea how to rewire the bellows to the movement. There are a few pictures that come close on-line, but I was hoping for better ones or some basic instruction. Also, when working correctly, should this chirp out of both bellows at each quarter hour or single until the top of the hour? I assume one at quarter and two at top, but that is why the wiring is key. Thank you!

There were some post for these on the web that showed reasonably
how the wires were set.
When lifted the second bellows gets set on a trap lever.
At the hour, when the primary bellows falls, near closed, it trips
the secondary bellows.You only get one cuckoo per 15 minutes.

Finally found the post you want to see:

https://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php...le-cuckoo-clock-please&highlight=cuckoo+wires

The lever on the windmill pushes the left belows up.
There is a wire crossing to the right bellows from the left to the right.
It lifts at the same time as the left because of that wire.In
the second post you can see the trip mechanism.
As the right bellows is lifted, it is caught and held open by the tip.
When the left bellows falls, at the bottom, it bumps the trip and the
right bellows falls.
Post 16 and 30 are really good as well.
