Seth Thomas 89 AE Sonora Chime Mantel Clock Movement
If your serious about replacing your worn movement with a high quality rebuilt movement consider one of ours. Every pivot, lever and tooth is inspected for defects and repaired or replaced if needed providing you with a movement as close to factory new as you can find anywhere.
Our movements are simply the best rebuilt movements you will find anywhere period! We take NO shortcuts on the overhaul process and have a extensive used parts inventory should a defective part have to be replaced.
The Seth Thomas 89AE movement pictured was just rebuilt by us and shows where new Bergeon bronze bushings where installed, see picture with the red circles.
Prior to installing new Begeon bronze bushing all pivots where polished using a Rollimat pivot polisher, a tool specifically designed for polishing pivots of all the defects. When finished every pivot is perfectly round again and has a mirror like finish, a thing of beauty.
We then assemble and test the movement for at least one week prior to oiling the pivots with the best synthetic clock oil. We have always tested our movements without oil for at least a week so not to hide and potential binding problems.
Your newly overhauled movement will provide many years of dependable service, all you have to do is wind it up and enjoy.
See picture with red circles indicating new bronze bushings on the back and front plate
See picture with the blue arrow pointing to the 89AE stamp on the movement . If replacing your worn movement please make sure it also has 89AE stamped on the movement for proper fitment.
The 89AE movement was used for those Seth Thomas Sonora Chime Clocks that used chime rods for the Westminster chime.
Also take note the movement has the holes to mount the black mounting ring as shown in the last picture, it also has the mounting ears on the movement itself for mounting the movement to the case. My guess is depending on the case determined which mounting system would be used. This movement does not comes with the black mounting ring shown in the last picture.
See pictures for distances for the winding arbors and center shaft (where the hands attach) to the center shaft.
Comes as pictured.
