1, Wind the clock. If the pendulum still does not swing, check the hands of the clock. If the hands are touching each other, push the hour hand gently toward the clock face. If the hands still touch, gently bend the minute hand away from the clock face.
2. Examine the swing of the pendulum. If it moves, and then stops, or if it swings erratically, the clock is probably off-balance. Gently tilt the clock to one side and restart the pendulum.
Watch the swing of the pendulum. If it stops again or continues to swing erratically, try tilting the clock in the opposite direction. Tilt the clock at various angles, on each side, and front and back, until the pendulum runs smoothly and regularly.
Note the clock position in which the pendulum swings freely. Place a wedge underneath the clock in the place needed to maintain this angle. If a wedge alone will not hold the Seth Thomas grandfather clock in the proper position, try lifting the clock slightly up against the wall.
Use a screwdriver to attach a bracket to the wall at the appropriate position. Additional brackets may be needed depending on the angle required. It may also be necessary to employ a combination of wedges and brackets.

I suggest that you need to remove the the first Left weight and see if the clock will run normal again since you mentioned it was not connected before you took possession of it.
Remove the Left Weight and see first if thing will run fine on the clock, must be a reason why the first owner never connected the Left Weight.
Won't hurt to try.
