    Hi Ed,
    The pics might help me to figure out what you’re describing. From how I visualize your descriiption though (I could be way off) I think all that you need to do at this point is hang your pendulum from the thread loop. The loop doesn’t extend down through the crutch. The silk thread loop design was eventually replaced by a suspension spring which passed through a brass block or chops that could be moved up and down the spring for regulating. The adjustment for the silk thread just raises or lowers it a little for regulation. Anyway, if you get some pics of the clock please do put them up here or email them to me and I’ll throw them up here for you. Sounds like a nice clock.
