    Yes that seemed to be part of the problem. I tried moving the excapement wheel arm to bring it away thinking that perhaps the new bushing took it out of alignment. This managed to move the verge away. Then it would skip and then catch and stop without getting any push on the verge. I noticed the escapement wheel teeth seem worn comparied to other clocks including another newer Ingraham movement that I have. Though it is not the same model has an identical escapement wheel and verge, only the wheel rotates the other direction. I have some photos of the escapement wheel to show the wear. I’m not sure if they are high enough quality though.
