 You can't over wind a clock. The clock has stopped because of some force (dirty, worn, out of beat if pendulum movement) and that issue needs to be resolved. Without seeing the clock I can not tell you which it is. They have been making this movement since the late 60's and most shops do not work on them because it ends up being cheaper to replace the movement.
