I bought a very beat up, broken dirty old cast iron Ansonia mantle clock recently and it’s a great clock. Circa late 1800’s I assume. The particular items that are missing are the suspension spring and pendulum bob. On the back of the plate are the numbers 5 or 6 1/2. If this is the pendulum length, can someone clarify for me?
also, if anyone happens to have a pic showing these items on the clock and working that would be super.
Thank you.

Repo pendulum assembly's and generic suspension rods are readily available.
Merritt's #P-111 (pack of suspension rods) and #P-1358 (shortest repo replacement) should do it.

You will have to add about $6 worth of something to make a minimum ($25) order.

Good luck, Willie X
