Heinz Jauch 77 strike/chime

Hello,  I am hoping you can assist me with a Jauch 77 movement that was taken apart by unexperienced owner after relocation stopped clock.  I am amature clock repair and only for myself usually but agreed to this as a favor.  I have managed to put time/chime/and strike train back in what I beleive are correct order and clock works and keeps time - however the strike and chime is not working correctly.  Westminister chimes only on hour are doubled and hour strike once for each chime sequence.  No chime at 15/30/45 but full 16 note chime at hour strike once - repeat chime repeat strike.  I don't know what I have done incorrectly, can you help? Cry  Thank you

This is a tough one without the movement in my hands but your clock  needs to be put together correctly, and adjusted correctly. The chime train needs to be set up correctly as you put the clock together and further adjustments made after assembly. I cannot say for sure but I also believe you have a bent lever or levers.
This particular movement could also probably benefit from a good overhaul.
I do not mean this in a bad way but you may be in over your head with this clock.
My advice is to find someone else to do the job or return it to your friend .

Hi, It has taken me a while to get back to this-but here goes.  A difficult problem for sure, however I do not think anything was bent, owner did not remove clock dial and so front side was untouched.  Train wheels and mainsprings were out and so I think one is out of place.  Any help at all of where to look for the problem would be appreciated.

A photo of the front of the movement without the dial and also one of the back might be helpful here.

Yep - we do need a picture, and you'll have a frustrating job on your hands!

BTW, it's Westminster, not Westminister.

It's probably that our friends over there never hear the name actually spoken.

Like 'loose' vs 'lose'  Wink

Trousers test: 
If you loose your trousers, no problem, just tighten your belt.
If you lose your trousers you're in serious trouble, 'specially if it's outside in winter!

I'll get my coat ...
