I am working on the movement shown in the photos below. The movement is from a Tambour style case. I think it is from England, but not certain. No names on the dial of the movement. The movement has removeable mainspring via small removeable plates on the back side (shown in photo) and removeable round disks that are under the click ratchet gears. It is a 3 gear train movement with Westminster chime on the quarter hour. As can be seen in one of the photos the quarter hour chime is controlled by the circular stop plate on the front of the movement into which drops a pin after either 4, 8, 12 or 16 notes have been hit. Between the plates and on the same arbor as the above mentioned circular stop plate is another circular stop plate and it has only one notch in it. It is aligned such that a pin will drop into the notch at the same time the pin on the front drops in just after the completion of the firt quarter hour. The notch on the inside stop plate has a sharpe starting drop and then a gradual sloping rise out. The lever that is rising out of the notch carries a on an extension of itself a stopping pallet that stops a pin on one of the wheels on the train, thus stopping the gear train during the execution of the second quarter hour chime sequence. I know something is wrong, but what??
