    The pictures look right to me. Which gathering pallet does your clock need? The chime or the strike? They do turn in opposite directions.

    Hadn't though of that. Good point! I need it for the strike, no chime here.

    What does right or left refer to incidentally? The direction the arbor turns or the side of the clock, or?

    The reason I asked the initial question is other suppliers appear to be reversed in their labeling, or (a good possibility), I'm just missing something.

    I was puzzled by the same issue. I ended up buying one of each - a repair and a spare - to borrow from English monarchy terminology.

    Both sides of the clock can turn the same way so it
    must be the rotation. Maybe better labeled CW and CCW.

    They explain it in the Merritts link. One is used when the pin in in front of the rack, the other when it's behind.
