    Hey Ted, picture ALWAYS help out, thanks, I am assuming your clock would strike a bim-bam (each hammer strikes) for each count, remember that when the strike train sets up your hammers should NOT be lifted at all, the wheel that the hammers are lifted by with the star shape lifting device, or “hammer lifting star” should be adjusted so that the lower and upper “hammer tails” fall between the lifting star points, also when the strike train goes into warning the hammers are still not lifted, the train needs to “race up” to lifting the hammers. in some cases if the train is under strain to get started because it is already trying to lift hammers it could falter. you will have to spread the plates and turn the wheel with the lifting star into a position that allows all this to be so. I hope this helps out. William
