Most BBQ makers know that their ignition system will be the first thing to break so they give your a small match holder. The loop holds a short match so you can lower it down to light the burners manually, the chain just connects it to the grill so you don't lose it.

I've had this same problem with a 30 year old koo koo clock. I'm sure the parts in your grandfather clock are much larger, but the basic design should be the same.
What I had to do was first remove the weight and whatever hook is attached directly to the chain. Then remove any loop or hardware on the opposite end of the same chain. Now, spread open the last link so you can attach it to the first link in the chain. This will make a continuous loop. You'll see why in a bit.
Now comes the tedious part. You'll have to reach inside the clock from the back side with a long piece of stiff wire. Small enough to get underneath the part of the chain that has slipped it's gear. Chances are this chain is wedged between two gears. You may need to bend a small hook at the end of the wire to help dislodge the chain. When the chain is free you can realign it on the appropriate gear. Now that the chain is in the right place, you can advance the chain in the proper direction to get it seated correctly. This is where the loop comes into play. Since the weight was wedged up at the top, you wouldn't be able to advance the chain. Since it's a loop, now you can. Keep pulling the chain in the right direction until you know it's spinning freely. Then you can unloop the chain, reattach the hooks and the weight and test it out.
You never know when you are going to need or want an easel to show off your art work, maybe your kids want to finger paint who knows they could be the next Van Gogh. Building a display easel is very simple and can be done in just a few hours.
You want to start with two pieces of wood cut to 2x82" these pieces will form the front legs of the easel. Using a table saw cut the tops of the wood to a 15* angle. Take a measuring tape and measure 78" from the bottom of the wood (up to the angle cut) mark this spot on both pieces.
Using a drill, drill a 3/8" hole through the widest side of the angle as a right angle to the cut. Repeat for the second front leg.
To make the back leg cut a piece of wood down to 2x81" long, using your drill, drill two 3/8" holes in the widest side of the wood. One hole should be 39" from the bottom of the wood and the second at 74" from the bottom.
Your art work needs something to sit on so to make the cross bar cut a piece of wood down to 2x47".
Now you are ready to assemble your easel. Take the front and back legs and lay them on the floor next to each other with the back leg in the middle. Rotate the front legs to the angle is facing the back leg and line up the holes. Slide a bolt into the hole and place a washer and a nut on the end, keeping it loose enough to adjust the angle. Stand up the easel and spread the from legs so that they are 45" away from the back leg. Tighten the bolt and you have the angle right and lay it back down.
To attach the cross bar, measure 38" up from the bottoms of the front legs find the center and drill a 3/8" hole in each and bolt the cross bar to the legs. To keep the legs from spreading too far you can attach a chain between the cross bar and the back leg. To do this you thread the chain through the hole in the back leg and tie it off. Attach an eye screw to the cross bar and loop the chain through it to keep limit how far the legs can spread to the angle that you want to work or display at.
Its going be tough to pull out anything other than a small 4 cylinder without a hoist. You could use a comealong. Its like a small hoist, has a chain and a lever you can use to lift the engine. It has a hook on it to allow you to attach it to something.
But to be able to use it you need to put the car underneath something that is sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine, like a large limb on a tree or a metal frame of a garage or something like that. And you will need a sturdy chain. The bigger the better. Attach the chain to your engine lift hooks. Get some grade 8 screws,nuts and washers from home depot. Get the largest diameter screws that will fit through the links of the chain. Make a loop on each end of the chain by putting the screws through links and tightening the nuts on the screws. Put the loops you made on the engine lift hooks. Attach the come along to the tree or whatever you can find thats sturdy enough to support the weight of the engine with another chain. Then lift the engine out.
you will have to detach the ac compressor and power steering pump and tie them out of the way with pieces of wire. That way you wont have to discharge the ac system or drain the power steering fluid. Remove coolant hoses and fuel lines. And remove the half shafts for front wheel drive. Then detach the motor mounts/transmission mounts. Of course, theres a lot of other stuff you need to detach, but im sure you know that already.
You can rent engine hoists for like $35 a day from a Taylor Rental or other equipment rental company. Rent it one day and take it back and rent it another day when you are ready to put the engine or another engine back in.
Place the large, round base on the floor. The outwardly curving edge should be facing downward.
Attach the three pedestals to
the base. To do so, insert your finger into each pedestal and loop the
spring within around the hook found on the base in the appropriate
holes. Insert the three plastic tabs on each pedestal into the base,
locking them into place.
Press the wider end of a lower
leg assembly onto each pedestal piece. By wiggling the lower leg
assembly side to side, you will eventually snap the pieces into place.
Hold the seat ring in your lap with the open edge facing upward. Press each of the six wheels into the wheel holders around the edge of the seat ring. Each wheel will snap into place when positioned correctly.
Insert the cloth seat into the
seat ring, aligning the diamond on the cloth seat with the triangle on
the seat ring. Each plastic tab lining the edge of the cloth seat
attaches to a peg on the seat ring. Snap these connections into place.
Hold the Exersaucer tray on its
side and press the seat ring into the center. Once the seat ring snaps
into place, it should be able to spin in place.
Attach the three spring caps to
the Exersaucer tray. These spring caps cover the three large holes in
your tray, and are attached by a firm clockwise twist.
Attach the upper leg assemblies
to the upper leg crowns. These crowns act as the "socket" and the upper
leg assemblies act as the "ball." By pressing them together with a
click, the upper leg assemblies can twist and rotate in place.
Turn the tray upside down and
press each upper leg crown base into the round holes in the tray with a
firm twist. Each upper leg crown features a height adjustment hole,
which will face outward when properly attached.
Turn over the tray so that the
upper leg assemblies are facing downward. Insert each upper leg assembly
into a lower leg assembly, being sure to pull away the height
adjustment tab to allow the assemblies to slide together.
Press each toy into its
respective port on the surface of the tray. The toys each have a
distinct base, which clicks into the correspondingly shaped tray port
