    I am in the process of overhauling the above movement and I am very curious about the spring configuration.

    The strike train has a 3/8 " wide loop end spring and the time train has a 1/2" wide spring that has the hole in the end ala a enclosed spring.Also the click springs are different,the s train has the click mounted on the wheel where the t train has the click and spring mounted on the inside of the front plate and independent of the spring assembly except when mounted.

    This is the first movement of this nature I have worked on and I was wondering is this was normal manufacturing procedure or if it might be a variant?

    I've merged the two threads on what is presumably the same clock. Perhaps a picture of the movement to clarify what you mean.

    Thanks Steven,I wasn't sure how to edit and manage attachments .....the movement is in tear down stage so photos will not show the assemblys/springs in question in a constructed form.
