Have a grandfather clock with a 24 year old Sligh movement.
Have a grandfather clock with a 24 year old Sligh movement. Has performed flawlessly for those years. Was oiled professionally twice in it's life. Needed to be oiled so did it myself. Removed the entire gear mechanism without incident,oiled and put back together. When I started the pendulum swing all sounded good but the clock and pendulum stopped in about 7 minutes. Been reading up on setting the beat. Been unable to get into proper beat. Clock cabinet is perfectly level, hands are not rubbing, pendulum not rubbing on weights or chime rods. When pendulum is removed the clock mechanism runs and it is clearly out of beat with a tick tock..........tick-tock,........tick-tock sound. It has a rigid crutch attached to the shaft above which controls the teeter totter on the gear that makes the tick tock sounds. Do I need to make an adjustment to how the crutch is attached to this shaft? … read more
