    Good to hear you got the computer up and running Bill!

    I agree. I think you could be on the right track Things do sometimes jam when more power is applied.

    I’m still waiting though to hear about the condition of the springs. It does sound like the springs are just dry and dirty. When they get like that the coils will often tend to stick together when enough pressure is put on them. If the springs are badly set then it seems to me that even less power would be available to overcome stuck together coils. It’s fairly common to see a clock run ok as Randy mentions with a few winds and then stop all together when more power is applied. Until the springs are cleaned or replaced it would be hard to tell how much effect worn bushings, pivots etc. are having on the clocks performance.

    At this point though it sounds like sticky springs to me.

    Welcome back Bill!
