Antique Clocks/gilbert mantle clock


I have a Gilbert mantle clock,  it is missing its pendulum so don't know if it works, on the front of mechanism behind dial it has number 267,is this the  number I need to  find the correct pendulum, if so where and how do I get old of one,

  You have two choices in pendulums. Adjustable and non adjustable. If you look at the dial and you see a small hole above or below the 12 , then you need a non adjustable bob. This small hole is for adjusting the timekeeping and allot of times will have s and f on either side of the hole. Sometimes the hole could be below the hour shaft. If you don't have a adjusting hole then you will need to get a adjustable pendulum. If you could e-mail a picture of the clock I could tell you what you need. You could probably get an old one from e-bay or there are several places that sell repro.
