    Hey sorry to hear about the heart attack Don!
    I hope you’re feeling better now.

    You can purchase Ingraham escape wheels at timesavers and also merritts.
    For the striking late problem I would first check that the hand isn’t on upside down. I know that sounds crazy but it happens all the time. The square hole isn’t always broached accurately which can result in a few minutes variation if flipped from one side to the other.
    Few American clock hands used collets with a square hole but if your hand does happen to have this arrangement then the collet can be moved forward in the hand a little. Again probably not the type of hand you have.
    If the hand isn’t upside down or of the collet type then you may need to bend the J-hook end (bend from just above where the j or hook begins) away from the center arbor lift pin/cam (strike release pins) just a bit. This will cause the strike to occur earlier. You may have to try this a few times before you get it right.

    Again hope you’re feeling better soon Don.
    Good luck and let us know if this helps or if you still have questions.
