    Hi Jay,
    I should have been clearer on the camera angle that I was after. My fault. The angle on the “before” picture was perfect as I could see the click and how the mainspring hole end approached the post that it’s attached to. I’m not able to see this in any of the eight pics you put up there. But not important now as I watched the video that you emailed me. Looking from the “front” it looks like the escape wheel is rotating CW which would be the correct direction. I think if you put the verge in things would work fine. Try putting the minute hand on the minute post and let the train turn “slowly” under a little power. If it turns clockwise then all’s well.
    Please let us know what you find out Jay
    and have fun with it!
