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.

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.
