Question
Have a 78 or 79 Trend grand father clock. It chimes 7 minutes late on every chiming position. Adjusting the minute hand has no affect. Can you help?

Thanks,

John

Answer
Hi John,

Remove the hand nut for the minute hand and take off the minute hand.
In the center of the minute hand is a bushing with a square hole.
That bushing moves. You need to hold the bushing with a pliers while moving the minute hand back about 7 minutes worth of time.
It may take a few times to get it exact but you can do it.

Hope this helps,

This is for advice only. ~Most~ repairs need a professional. If I can help you with an adjustment that can set your clock back in order I will try. I can not write a chapter on clock repair. I will point you in the right direction and you will have to do your own research on how clocks work for more intense repairs. -No Watches -No Appraisals. Search ebay for past sales for that information.
