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.

Search ebay for past sales for that information.

2016-08-14 Urgos chime movement:

Hi Lew,     What did you clean the movement with?  Many times there is a lot of dirt between the   pivot shoulder and the inside plate.   You need to get a stiff paint brush (not hairs)  with nylon bristles
