Here are pictures of the suspension that goes with a clock I will soon be working on, discussed in a previous post. The problem for me is what to do with the flat piece in the bracket. First, I don't even know for sure if i can even remove it. It is secured by posts into holes in the bracket. I have pushed into the holes, hoping there was a pin, but it does not budge, like it is one piece, but it is free to rotate. At first I thought it was one of those I have read about that was a block that crimped onto the suspension spring. However, I have only one other clock with an example of this suspension and it does not have this flat piece in it. It looks as though the suspension spring is attached by being held by the tiny bar making up the bottom of the U-shaped piece.If someone could enlighten me on how to proceed, I would greatly appreciate it.
