I recently repaired this clock. It needed a new ratchet wheel and a new second wheel. The mainspring was stronger than necessary (3/4 inch wide by .018 inch thick) so I replaced it with a new spring 0.0165 inches thick and 108 inches long.
This clock has a Graham deadbeat escapement, with the adjustable pallets mounted between the two brass pieces that form the body.
The oak case is 52 inches tall, 20 1/2 inches wide at the top, 16 15/16 inches wide at the door, 10 inches deep at the top and 8 1/4 inches deep at the door. The dial is made of aluminum, and is 13 inches square, with a 10 7/8 inch time track.
The clock originally had a mechanism in the base for controlling bell ringing, see this web site for more information and pictures.
