• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

I am going to go slow and ask questions. First question the winding arbor on the strike side has a shaft that turns but will not drive the drum, You can can turn the drum by hand (No Weight) and it will wind. I am looking at the movement and thinking if I want to procede. See the pics I am sure these a similar to a running clock I have in my collection. Books on Morbier Repair?

You'll have to dismantle the striking train to get its great wheel out, as from what you're saying the barrel is loose on its arbor.

Could be a click or the click spring. As Mike said, you'll have to remove it in order to do much with it even though the repair itself is not too difficult.
