I have a New England Wall Clock with a steeple that has the words "Hawk what's The Cry Prepare to Meet Thy God Today" on the face. I would appreciate help to obtain the instructions or manual for this clock.
Unless you go through the internet looking for a manual I would think they are hard to find.
Your clock is a weight driven clock. It needs to be hung on a strong wall support. Personally I don't like picture hangers.
Get the clock level. I put a level under the bottom part of the clock. Hang the weights on, attach the pendulum and give the pendulum a swing. If it doesn't go it may need service.
If there is anything else I can help you with please ask.
