I have a two key Garrard mantle clock made in England. Iin counting the strikes the rack pin skips every other thooth. Because of this I can only have 6 strikes. Other than that everything is going well. Happy New Year.

Hello Amp,
Maybe an appropriate length video posted to YouTube and linked here would help us see what's going on.

Look closely at the gathering pallet. It may have had two pins at one time, and one broke off. Easy to fix if that's the case. Your attachments don't show. Use the "attach files" box below the posting box.

It appears that it should have two pins on the gathering pallet, but I can't see what the hammers are doing to tell for sure. If you could post to Youtube and link here it would be better. Not everyone can unzip files :)
