The hairspring was loose when i got it,,that was one of the problems, it looked like the pin was broke cause the ballance was loose,,when i took it apart i found the hairspring on the shaft cocked,,so i reseated it. Then the ballance cock was peened to raise it up,,so it was too high,,i filed down the peens and burs and now it sits properly and the wheel spins free, but looking at the side you can see the balance wheel is not quit paralel to the base, but spins freely.

I also put it together with the hairspring werever,,just to see,,and the hairspring moves like it should bu does not move the fork,,,im assuming the balance wheel is 180 off, or far enough off to not even touch the fork…
