Hope I can get some guidance with this problem. I have a Kienzle Westminster chime bracket clock, ca 1910 that has a problem with the quarter hour chime mechanism. I have taken apart, cleaned/polished pivots, rebushed where I felt it necessary and put in new mainsprings. The time side and hour strike side work great but the chime side is sluggish and at times, struggles to go through it's paces and I'll have to help the wheels along to go through the cycle. I checked the endshake and that appears to be ok, nothing pinching. I have not even put on the chime hammers and roller so this will even add more strain to the chime side. My question is has anyone else had similar problems with the Kienzle westminster chime clocks and if so, what solution fixed the problem? Thanks for any help with this issue.
