    How would one adjust for music playing 5 minutes before the cuckoo announces.
    Thanks.

    I don't think it's possible - I think the lever that locks the cuckoo train UNlocks the the music.

    There are levers that arrange this. We'd need pictures
    of the back of the clock since there are a couple of different
    arrangements.
    It is not an easy adjustment and is difficult for someone that
    has done it. For a beginner is not going to be easy.

    I've fixed many regula 25 movements. This is the first with music. I understand the relationship the music box levers with the clock. Warning wire and pull lever are working properly.
    This has a separate minute hand tube sliding onto a fixed arbor. With the hour tube over that. Possibly the minute tube, since it has a fixed cam gear, may need to be synchronized with regard to its high points. I'm having problems with photo uploads.
    By the way, the star wheel is between the plates.
    Thanks

    Well, if they were working properly, you wouldn't get any music playing til the cuckoo finished its thing. Perhaps you don't understand the relationship as well as you think you do??
    Best I can do is tell you that when the lever is pulled out of the drum during cuckoo warn, there is another wire that has to catch the fly on the music governor to keep it from running until the cuckoo finishes, at which time it drops out of the way. Pictures would help us to see exactly where you need to focus your attention.

    Knew it well enough to fix the problem. The pull lever on the clock needed a little slack. Figured out the cam gear too. I set the cam at the top of the arc as it held the strike release. Thanks.

    Glad to hear you've solved it Rick. The difference between working and not working is often just a few thou of an inch. Was yours one of the cuckoos with the music movement in the roof? They are always fun to work on.

    Your pictures might have been too big. There's a size limit of around 3000 pixels. Try reducing the size and uploading them again so we can see that beast :)

    Harold, it does have a roof mounted box. I finally figured it out thanks to a post by "Bangster" in 2012.
    Thanks guys.
