I found my old childhood era cuckoo clock in the basement and decided to get it working again. It is 63 years old. It was missing chains and weights, and the bellows were broken. I replaced the bellows, guessed at the chain, and installed 275 weights. So, the clock is running perfectly, and the cuckoo works fine, but the cuckoo chain is riding up on the sprocket, because the chain will jerk while the cuckoo is working, and also I can see it when I open the little widow. The links appear to be too close together. I installed one day regula 25 with 61 links, as that is what I guessed it should be. Also, maybe the clock chain is riding up on the sprocket, but I can't tell that. It doesn't seem to jerk, but I don't have a window to look into that side. Also another note, pulling the cuckoo clock weight up - it seems to go very smoothly, so that mystifies me why it rides up on the sprocket while cuckooing. I have retired and I am thinking of maybe picking up old clocks and repairing them as a hobby. Any thoughts on that also?
