    Hi Randy, this could be caused by a few problems. Is the chiming mainspring powerful enough? If it is the original spring it could need replacing. Try just putting the chiming wheels between the plates and check for binding or stiffness which can be caused by a bent pivot or not enough end-shake on an arbor. There are so many of these westminster chime movements its a bit of a tricky one to answer without seeing the movement. Tension springs if bent out of shape can also cause problems because they put too much pressure on the parts they are retaining.
    Sorry I cant be more help but please post a picture up of the movement and I might be able to help a little more.
