Need Ansonia going train parts.

I have an early Ansonia mantle movement that needs a longer minute shaft and going train to match. The movement is of the pre-1881 style with squared-off corners (not the arch-plate design). The minute shaft needed should be about 3 1/2" long from the top of the back plate to the end of the hand square. I would buy a complete movement to get this part if you have one. I can send a pic of my movement if you are not sure of the design I need. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Interesting request, Al. Yeah, some pic's of what you're up to would help. Might even be able to offer a different option.

For whatever reason, my attempts at uploading a couple of pics just freezes my computer. Anyway, the present minute shaft length is 2 5/8" from top of back plate to tip of minute square. From top of front plate to tip of minute square is 1 1/8". Maybe this will help you some. Thanks for replying.

Have you considered making (or having made) a longer arbor? You'd also need a longer hour pipe. Everything else would stay the same.

Are you considering to doing this because the case you are installing this movement, was meant for a long shaft. You could make an extension for the center arbor and a new hour pipe. Do you have the equipment to do this?
