I struggled on and managed to align the hands to the bell. Is there likely to be an adjuster screw the clock strikes just past 12?

In the process of putting the clock movement back the bell stiker fell off. What is the best way to replace it in the capstain? Does anyone know how to remove the brass capstain.

These are two pictures

The striker.


Thank you everyone for your help. I greatly appreciate your help in this adventure.

I decided to have a go and put the striker back. I have done it. I hope it lasts. I removed what I think was solder, with a 1mm drill bit in a hand drill. I then resoldered the striker back in. The result is not professional because the solder would not take well but it is holding. Was this the way to do it?

Yes. The CAPSTAN should have been held in place by a PIN.
