Ansonia chime issue

Recommended Posts

So I'm working on an Ansonia clock. Re-bushed, flipped the great wheel over and it is now running. The problem is I can't seem to get the chime working. I suspect that I may have put a part in the wrong way but for the life of me I can't see where or why. A picture is attached. The only number on the movement is 89 stamped on the bottom right of the back plate. Thanks in advance for any help.

I should add that the gear train does spin but won't stop. I know that is not much info but I don't know what else to add.

Update, it appears that it is probably a timing issue with one of the gears. Anyone familiar with how to set timing properly

Thanks Oldhippy. That was extremely helpful. It appears that the stop pin is 180 degrees out of time with the lever. This is the first time I have come across this issue. I will be attempting to line it up properly.
