I've been around,taking care of my wife who's recovering from chemo.
Tell me if it is a 2 or 3 train movement,cable or chain drive and I will attempt to talk you through putting it "in beat"or otherwise setting it to rights.
Sorry for the late reply, had a busy weekend.

It's the kind with the three weights on cables. Does that help?

It also has a second hand in a little area at the top. Kind of hard to explain but I'm sure you probably know what I'm talking about.

Yup,do you have a quartz watch or clock with a seconds hand?As I mentioned above you can do a fairly good job of regulating the pendulum by using the quartz timekeeper as a "master"noting whether the Granfather{or Tallcase as us Horologists call it}gains or loses in comparison with it,really simple.

I'm assuming you have a working knowledge or how to regulate your clock,more info in my post above.
Any more questions please be as detailed as you wish.
