    Is it possible to post a pic James? Sometimes the regulators can be stiff as they have not been touched for quite a few years but would like to see a pic just to be on the safe side if at all possible.
    Paul.

    Hi James, here is a past thread that has a PDF on the floating balance, might help you out. look in general discussion for “Clock with balance escapement” Yes those @james burrows wrote:

    3 prongs on the top

    are to regulate, make sure you start the balance wheel past 180 when starting the beat, it will also help to make sure it is in beat with the little lever at the to of the coil spring, but all that info should be in the PDF. Have fun!!!! :D William
