You have to adjust the bob on pendulum. If the clock is slow, the bob on the rod must be pushed up. If the clock is fast, the bob must be pushed down. Do adjustments bit by bit, day by day till the clock is keeping time. If all this does not work, you may need to replace suspension spring (if there is any). If there are no suspension spring, the clock may need proffessional attention.

I had the same problem; I inherited a clock by that description with my office. I'm not sure if it would help you, but I was able to at least figure out the mechanics of the clock from this site: http://www.clockworks.com/cintro1.html
They claim that you can order the spring there.

Wind the clock until there is a sudden increase in resistance (it is then fully wound). So not apply a great force, as older clocks may be weaker and overloading the spring may break the termination and result in a new spring being required.
If you think it is becoming too stiff, just stop winding and see how long it runs for. I have often heard the term "over winding at clock" but have never quite understood the term. As a retired engineer I think that springs that break because of overenthusiastic winding are probably near the end of their life anyway.

mcdevito75 here, I would figure the pendulum serves 2 purposes, 1 it acts like a seconds hand on a watch and 2 more important it acts a s a counter weight keeping the clock in Balance. It sounds like the Pendulum mechanism needs cleaning and or adjustment, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can advise you on a clock repair shop in your area, or you can always check with the repair service directory right here at fixya, bottom of page, click on repair service directory the watches / clocks.
