Colonial GF Clock Manual set up ajustments

Colonial grandfather clock
I recentely purchase a Colonial Grandfather/mother Clock at an Estate sale. The sale was closing and I offered 200 to it take off their hands, it was running and had a low mild chime (chimes on the quarter hour) and not the loud "gong-gong" from a normal grandfather clock. Just right for my living room.
I have had it for over 3 months. But I noticed that it is running approx. 8 minutes slow. I do not know how to ajust it in any way. It does not have a access panel in the back nor on either side. So it can not be tampered with. My Question is
: Can any one tell me how I can ajust the time to speed it up a few minutes?
Thank you for your time and Information,
or were I can find a manual
that will tell me this information.Hi there Rusty
Congrats to this beautiful clock. It seems to have found a good home.
To adjust the speed of the clock you will find a nut on the bottom of pendulum. When you turn the nut to the right the weight on the pendulum will move up causing the clock to run faster. And of course turning the nut to the left will slow the clock down.
