I have a 68 with the clock out for testing and replacing the adj. pin. It wasnt working and I found one of the wound wires broke and resoldered it. now when I apply 12v to the back spade and ground the body it makes a sound as if a contact was opened but nothing is moving. should something move? thanks

Sorry I guess no one can rebuild a clock. A lot of guys just get a newer quartz movement or send them out for rebuild.

Depending on who made the movement, Borg-Warner or Westclox. I think it's the BW's that have a "flyback" lever. When it ticks down to where the contacts close, the electromagnets energize, and this weighted lever "flys back" up, winding the spring for another minute's worth of ticking.
A lot of times the contacts get burnt from the severe arcing over 30 years. You can manually (gently) move this lever up, and the clock should start ticking again.
