Help with my Sligh Grandfather Clock

(Dearborn HTS, MI)

My Mother and Father as an anniversary gift in 1987 back in the state of CAL purchased a Sligh grandfather clock.

As of last week July 25 2011 it's now mine. I've been fighting with the clock to get it up and running again. My Mother said the last time she had it running (years ago) it was losing an hour by the end of the week.

It now seems if I have the time, moon dial and chimes working for now but how well I guess I will have to wait the week to see. I remember as a child the chimes being so much stronger in sound and playing a little faster. I don't know if over time they seem to go or just slow down.

However, I'm finding it hard to find any info on it.

What I have so far is on the plate tag on the inside it reads....
Reg: 417-0546-6001A,
Movement 2969,
Dial 6180,
Pen 2810
weight shell 2772.

When I look up this number online I find a completely different clock then what I have now.

Yet, on the inside of the door I see another tag that reads...

0808-2-A and behind the A it could be an "N" or "1" not sure.
Made in Holland, MI 49423.

Any info or ideas would help thanks Thomas W.

Sluggish chime
by: Don Perry

Excessive wear in the chime train will cause a loss of energy from the weight through the gear train and result in sluggish chiming.

From what I learned after moving my clock...Make sure the correct weight is in the correct spot. If there are three weights see if they have a mark on the bottom. For example "C" for center (probably the time weight) "R" for the right weight and "L" for the left weight. They each have a different weight.
If you have the weights in the correct position and still have a gain or loss in time you can try adjusting the pendulum by the turn nut at the bottom of the pendulum. Hope this helps.
