Cool thanks for the suspension spring info.
Are you comfortable with removing the movement from the case to supply photos? Do you have any experience with clock movements? The wheel does need to be off, not just loosened. Of course it also could be that the chime sequence is out from a previous fiddler - will worry about that when I get a full set of rods. The case is facier, but the clock hands are the same.
