Hi Folks, I recently acquired a Waterbury Westminster clock, tambour case, with an unusual movement. It has a time and strike movement with a chime movement tacked on the back, giving it three plates. The pendulum rod/suspension spring looks like a home job and was taped to the crutch. I'm thinking the original was different in length. I was wondering if anybody might be familiar withe this movement (a clock buddy says it is an uncommon movement) and could tell me the proper length of the pendulum rod/suspension spring. Also the bob it came with was clearly a replacement. I found one on ebay, a cast one with a large 'W' on it. Sound right?

Unfortunately I don't have the exact measurements on hand. These movements are infamous for being among the more difficult to repair, but they do turn up once in a while. Here's an interesting video showing a movement in action:
