Have you seen this book? It doesn't seem to specify tall case clocks, but it may help? I haven't read it.

I do not own nor have I read the subject book. There is lot of very good information here on this site regarding repairing wood works mantle clock movements, thanks to R Croswell, I think. The suggestions, ideas, methods, and troubleshooting used on the mantle clocks is applicable pretty much directly to tall clock movements too.
