I have a tall-case clock was made by Lorenz Furtwängler Söhne, in Furtwangen, Germany in the Late 1920s. I cannot keep it running. The movement was cleaned part by part and freshly lubricated. The bushings were not bad, just some slight wear. However, I could not keep it running for more than a few hours. I decided to bush the bushings that I though were not bad. Still, cannot keep it running. The pendulum is a very heavy one. Everything seems to be in order, so I am thinking that perhaps it is the escapement not set properly. It does give a loud tic toc and the balance (even tic toc) is 0 to 1% and consistent. I just posted a video of the escapement in action on YouTube. I need expert opinion and advice!!!
