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.

    • I got this little beauty  at a swap meet on Sunday.  I changed the battery and still nothing.  I know nothing about quartz. Is there a trick I kneed to know?  Is it worth taking down to be repaired?  Should I look for an ETA movement to put inside?  It does have the gold matching band in good condition.

    • Thank you AndyHull and JerseyMo for responding with really helpful instructions!  You guys rock!  i have to get some rodic to help hold these two little mini-monsters in place. I was trying to use a small bit of sticky-tack but it didn't hold well enough.  I would get the screw into position but it would fall over when the screwdriver touched the screw.   For the 24 movement that still has the broken screw end in it, I will try to get that out after I get the lever and screw installed in my working 24.  And yes, I will install the crown/stem AFTER I have the lever and screw in place on the plate. Again, thanks for your help- i really appreciate it!!!  Will let you know when I get things back together.
